    Loooking to trade my fully restored WWH2O for a LOTR. Everything is new except the circuit boards, wiring harness, speakers, transformer and topper insert. Colordmd, lots of mods and even the cabinet is new. Used Mantis parts, Cliffy, pinbit plastic protectors, 3D and original translite, and mirco playfield.

    GSPF was excellent! Too many awesome pins and friends to acknowledge them all. My sincere thanks to all the volunteers!

    Brought back a new pin for Phoenix Games which is now on the floor. This modern classic is missing from our lineup no more.

    Hi any of you guys or gals headed to PNW anytime soonish?

    #4962 81 days ago

    Gotta sell a machine this summer, and ST LE is lowest on my list. Color DMD and shaker. If anyone's local this weekend and wants to check it out (or otherwise come bang on my other machines) holler.

    I can't leave pinside feedback for a game sold off market, so .. I'll say it here.

    Thanks to DaveB for being a great buyer. No drama, communicated, arrived as coordinated and real easy to work with. The bills may or may not be counterfeit but they seem to spend fine so far! Thanks man.

    /me heads off to give Pinside a donation in lieu of the marketplace commission

    Looking for a Whitewater in the Bay Area. If you are thinking of selling? I have a buyer - please PM me.

    Go check it out first, and then make an offer.

    Saw that one on CL, you gotta LOVE that game to spend that much dough. No idea how to price it.

    One of the best uses of "casually" ever!

    #4971 71 days ago
    Quoted from practicalsteve:

    I am casually in the market for a Hollywood Heat...

    I "casually" have a fully populated playfield. Not sure of the condition. Will have to dig it out of our shed.

    Susi says "why do we have this" ? Well, cause I wanted to get one some day. However, I'm in the process of downsizing.....

    Unsure if I want just a populated play field without the game, that may put me out of the casual category but if I find one that needs one I will hit you up!

    hey fireball2 did you ever help out Lou ferrigno? I had to bail on that other thread once it became the Ted show

    #4974 69 days ago

    Hey guys, in case you dont see the other thread ebay is running a 20% off coupon today, save up to 100. I bought a set of altek boards and save $93 coupon code PICKDADSGIFT

    Your're excacating to make a basement? I love it! What was there b4? Just a crawlspace?

    #4979 68 days ago
    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    Yes. Fortunately the house is on posts and not a slab.

    There will be a bar room addition on the side of the house and a gameroom basement underneath the bar and under part of the house.

    Yes, only in California.
    Yes I'm married. She's awesome.
    Yes, it's expensive... and yet it was easy to justify when compared with moving nearby.

    That's Awesome.
    Go Bigger, now's your chance.

    #4981 68 days ago

    Or you could go nuts with a pick axe and wheelbarrow like this guy who excavated ACRES of underground rooms, including a ballroom, entirely by hand!

    http://www.undergroundgardens.com

    Truly worth seeing if ever you are near Fresno. I often consider following in his crazy footsteps and expanding my tiny partial basement into a genuine pinball cave. It would definitely slow my acquisition roll if I had to hand dig room for each new game!

    That's awesome! Surely cheaper than buying a much larger house at $500 per sf and getting killed on property taxes. Don't forget the walk-out doors and post some pics for us when it's done!

    I have a hollywood heat I would "casually" sell to you but have no idea how much to ask ,lol.
    I also have a non populated palyfield to "casually" sell separately.

    Awesome! I’ll PM you in a bit. When I said “casually” I meant I didn’t want to ship one or I didn’t want someone’s high end restore. I’m out and about but will contact you soon

    Damn, you guys, on May 29th this thread became FIVE years old! I have met a lot of you guys that post on here and I really do value the friendships I have made. I kinda took a break from Pinside for a while but I have always checked this thread regularly and I’m gonna start posting in it more. Thanks to everyone for keeping this thread super friendly and drama free. Let’s keep it going for another 5 years. We are almost at five thousand posts too!

    Throwing in some pics I had on my phone of my favorite NorCal people.

    Looking back at the first page-

    Oh man, Blownfuse was the third guy to post, Rest In Peace buddy.

    I no longer have an F-14 or Taxi so you can’t come over and play those anymore.

    Wonder whatever happened to Sosage, hell of a nice guy

    Dsuperbee needs to get his butt back in here and post more often - same with shovelhead, star base, and pinwillie (I know your lurking

    Looks like mettalica was the hot new game at the time
