It's in amazing condition, NO playfield wear, everything perfectly functional, ColorDMD installed, cabinet pristine, Cliffy right ramp protector installed. If you like wire ramps, this one is your game! I am thinking $4500 before I list. Located in East Bay, Norcal. PM me.

    Talk to JethroP

    Considering the current banning auction prices this should sell in all of 8 minutes. GLWS.

    Friend of mine is looking for a TZ. Anyone know what's up with the one in Marin (other than being listed way too high $)? It's been on CL for what, a year now? Maybe more? Anyone talk to the seller and see what's up with it, or even go see it in person? Maybe they just don't want to budge on price?

    #7025 42 days ago

    What's the deal with the seller in Oakland I keep seeing on CL? Always has photos on what looks to be a laminate floor, games barely played, new-ish Stern titles, that are always way over-priced? Been meaning to ask this for a while, figured you guys would know the story.

    F#ck. Sorry. I assumed that was Whitey

    Could be bayareapinster but I doubt it. I've actually done business with the pinster and he was super cool. Kind of like if James Bond and Manny Paquio had a baby and that baby grew up to sling pins. Very easy to do business with.

    John Tennler. He is a good photographer, but I know a few people personally who still had to put a decent amount of coin in just to get the game playing right.

    For the prices he charges those machines should be perfect!

    Correct... John Tennler out of Oakland. He goes by Pinball Picker. Whitey is out of Burlingame / San Mateo area

    Who's the Fremont guy with the warehouse off Warm Springs? I helped a friend pick up his CFTBL there once.

    I posted some backglasses for sale in the PAGG 2021 threads. Also have a CL ad if you are interested.

    Thanks!

    Did he have some race cars in that warehouse? if so I bought a FH off him several years ago.

    Quoted from arcadenerd925:

    I think so. He had a few of the more-popular Bally/Williams titles in there I guess he was selling off.

    Yup that is him, super nice guys!

    #7047 35 days ago

    Did I hear race cars??? For anyone who is into that sort of thing…. Highly recommend a trip to the Bruce Canepa shop in Scotts Valley. He’s got about $200 million dollars worth of cars in there. Free entry.

    #7048 35 days ago

    I fixed a High Speed at exotic car rental place Club Sportiva in San Jose last week. Nicest car in there was a McLaren 600. Pin was next to the bar and Ferrari pool table. Emailed pics to Steve Ritchie.

    Tennler is a blatant lowballer. If you post a nice game for sale on CL, he'll email you a ridiculously low offer with no other text. 'Will you take $1500?' for a game you're asking $5k.

    For anybody going to PAGG,remember to take your c-19 shot records! They will check to see if your vaccinated!!CAX as well !!

    For CAX they will also accept recent negative covid tests in lieu of a vax record. Has to be within 72 hours of the event day. This hassle will keep a lot of people away.

    The masking requirement will keep a lot of people away as well. Who wants to spend all day trying to play games with a mask on?
