This has been up for over a year. I've emailed him several times in the past that I'll mail him $10 if he throws it away and permanently deletes the post. So far he hasn't got the hint.
Sounds like the sale of this dirty T2 fell through. The guy emailed me out of the blue last night and said it was still available. He asked what I'd pay for it and I told him I'd take a chance at $1000, assuming it didn't look as bad on the inside. He said the minimum he'd take is $2250, because "they seem to sell restored on eBay for $3000-8000".... I told him to email in in a month when it was still available.
Every single time I email a Craig's list seller about a game and they don't reply after the ad has been taken down, I email them a couple days later and say if the game is still available, I'll give them $1000 over what their original ask is, just to mess with them.
And here it is. The batteries had leaked some acid, but it doesn't look too bad. The insert lighting isn't working, pop bumbers dead, and it won't start a game. But it's going to clean up well and I'll get it brought back to its former glory. For $700, I'm happy.
I actually like a little 'patina' and battle scars on my games. I appreciate a beautiful game, but I like the bumps and bruises showing it's history. My Hurricane looks great and I love that someone named "Maria" carved her name into the side of the cab so many years ago. I think that's rad as hell.
Backglass was great, except for a 6x6” chunk missing in the top left corner. I’m going to get this alternate version off eBay.
