The days of me buying an EM just because it's a good deal or readily available are long gone. Same with going after games that others say are great. I do a lot of research now before I seek out any.
This Pit Stop was at a silent auction of a local pinball museum that had a lot of desirable games from the 50s all the way to the end of the era and beyond and I played as many as I could. Out of all of them this is the game I had to have so I bid accordingly and got it. It was a record executives personal game before it went there. I paid more than the going rate, but have got my money's worth and then some.
The other game I bid on but did not get was Shangri La, as it was beautiful and a good player. I still would not mind finding one some day.
