#821 6 years ago

I was instructed to move my requests to this thread...
Space Shuttle, Space Shuttle, Space Shuttle.
Also: Teacher's Pet, DE Simpsons, Expressway, Title Fight, Locomotion

#829 6 years ago
Quoted from jwwhite15:

Did you want a Space Shuttle?... I still want your speakeasy...just sayin'

Will, baby! Not my Speakeasy! How about a project Meteor?
But yes, really looking for a Space Shuttle.

I still owe you some bbq and beer and such for that Blackjack I still love so much. I put an alltek in it, redid connectors, and that sucker is almost bullet-proof. Love that game.

Not as much as Space Shuttle tho...

When are you headed out to the coast?

#837 6 years ago

O-Din... Are you saying you have one? Yes I am interested.

Ok people, I need some help pulling this off. I want to buy a couple of the machines on this thread that are in socal, but i need to sell a couple machines to do it (both for the room and the cache monet). It would be great if buyers for my machines were in socal; then I could even deliver. It would be beauty to leave with two machines and come home with two different ones, but obviously if a norcal/central valley homie wanted to come to the beautiful central coast and get 'em (and play some pinball), that would be ok too.

What I got:
A very nice Gottlieb Buccaneer. Works perfectly. BG: 9.8 PF: 9 Cab: 9.8. New rubber.
A very nice (deep breath) Bally Speakeasy. BG: 9+ PF: 9+ cab: 8+ with spare flyaway targets (4/5) and two spare flyaway assemblies for parts. Also a newly bulletproofed sdb (from Andrew, here on Pinside).

KerryRichard (in norcal) has first dibs on the Speakeasy which I can only sell if I can get the Space Shuttle PACMAN just put up. Only a Space Shuttle would make me sell Speakeasy.

I will get pics tonight for people who pm their interest.

Mikey, where do you get all your inside info on all them machines? You're always turning up something innaresting.

Where's that Expressway I was eyeing?

Non-Pinsider friend is selling his High Speed 2: slo.craigslist.org link
Worked on it a couple years ago. Fun machine!

#3865 5 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

IMHO Fathom and Centaur are overpriced games. They're the Monster Bash of the Bally solid states, wonderful art and theme, lots of fun, and not worth the money for the gameplay. They're collector games.

What he said. The sounds on Centaur get old fast also. That said, a super shweet one is prolly worth 3K+ in this day and age.

#3932 5 years ago

I am more than happy to help, but I don't know of any machines around these parts that are reasonably priced. There was a HS2 on CL awhile back for 2250... I know the guy, I could see if he still has it? Once the machine is picked, I could mos' def' help with setup and maintenance and eventual repair...

#3933 5 years ago

There a High Speed in the valley for 1800.
How far is too far?

#4315 5 years ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

My goal is to join you guys up there sometime soon in my retirement, being an ex-SLO Cal Poly guy.

Come visit anytime, daddio. My house is right downtown. Plenty of pinheads around here too.

#4322 5 years ago

Looking for a DE Simpsons or a Seawitch, preferably in Santa Barbara north to SF range.

#4329 5 years ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

My time there predates the farmers market.......we're talking 70s.

I moved here in '79 to go to Poly. Married a local girl and never left.
That arcade over on Foothill was Martini's Family Fun Fair, I think, and lasted until the mid to late 80's.
I was there a lot '81-'83. During the video arcade bubble, he even expanded to a second location.

#4340 5 years ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

Scrubby and Lloyds just closed a few months ago.

They tore that building down probly 10-15 years ago actually

Speedy Burger also had what they called the Mean Bean Taco; a regular taco wrapped in another tortilla lined with beans. Taco Bell totally stole the idea.

Quoted from xsvtoys:

And you are one of those @#[email protected]#'s who figured out a way to stay there. We say it that way only jokingly because we are so damn envious.

Yup. And I managed to buy a house right downtown. I have been mighty lucky and spoiled, and I know it. My boy is going to graduate this year and doesn't want to move away anywhere. Looks like another Cal Poly kid.

Quoted from Pinballlew:

Family Fun Fair is right. Second location was called Time Machine and was in what is now the Albertsons shopping center.

The wife went to high school with the kid whose parents owned it. He thought he was all that with pockets full of quarters.

#4341 5 years ago
Quoted from Pinballlew:

Yeah Scrubby and Lloyds was great.

Except for no fries.

I know I got an ad up for a DE Simpsons, but if'n I can find a player's Mousin Around for something south of 2k (or some sort of cash/trade) within 250 mile, I'd take that instead.

#4432 5 years ago
Quoted from practicalsteve:

Quoted from Cheddar:

This has been at Pin-a-Go-Go in Dixon the last 2 years.

He is modest when he calls it "partially restored." That sucker is a beaut! I played it last year at PAGG. I was not worthy. Space Shuttle is one of the greats, and this is a great one. I own a Space Shuttle, but I still wish I could buy this one.

OK People! I need that Devil Riders in Phoenix! Is there somebody in socal willing to be paid to get it from Phoenix to socal by july 14, when I would be there to pick it up from you? I will have already paid for it, you would just need to get it to southern cali by july 14. Gas and your time would obviously be compensated. And if you happened to set it up and play for a few days before I get there... coolio!

#8558 2 years ago

Finally found my perfect Space Shuttle, so I'm selling my players' one.
Better than most. Hot dog style inserts. Playfield 6, cab 6-7, bg 9.
Ramps ok, but are a little cracked.
Plays great. Speech sometimes is wonky.
Pm me for pics/more details.

#8559 2 years ago

Also... I just picked up a nice Catacomb! I'm planning on keeping it, but if you have anything on my wishlist that you're willing to trade for it, I'm listening!

#8583 2 years ago

As I swap things in and out of my new Space Shuttle project, I will have various parts that I take out for sale. The machine is already pretty good, so...

So far I have a set of displays and the board, all working perfectly. I swapped in led ones.

I also have a pretty much perfect backglass, since I have a new one.

In the next few weeks, I will have a ramp/shuttle and plastics. Those are probably about a 7 or 8. I don't think the ramp is cracked. Eventually, I will have a playfield that's about a 6+.

The sys9 board is spoken for.

Pm me if you need something. I'll be posting an ad soon enough.

Finally ready to move my players' Space Shuttle so's I can start on my restore. 1400 obo.
Pix here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/1LR4r3nUhLrMY3mw9
Got it open now, so can get more if wanted.
Plays great. Some cracked plastics, but nothing too ugly. Ramp has a small crack in the back under the plastic, but plays fine. Playfield has less than average wear for this title but is still, you know, a Space Shuttle playfield.
Boards are clean, but occasionally the voices are a little sloooow.

I'ma put an ad up soon.
Party on.

Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Maybe someone wants a Fun light project Slot Machine?

Hey Eric, I used to have one like that! It might not be broken. Lots of people don't realize how long it pays out when you win the super jackpot. If you don't have enough tokens (like hundredssss) it will spew them all out, and you have to keep shoving them back into the hopper again and again until it's done. It goes like 10 minutes, and if you don't have PUHLenty of tokens, most people think it's broken. It's prolly just still paying!

Looking hard for an Escape from the Lost World. Just saw that Banning will be auctioning one, but I don't prolly wanna deal with that action. I also have an Excalibur soon to be on the block for cash or if yer innnarested in a trade of some kind... And even perhaps my newly acquired Funhouse might be available for the right trade.

#10333 4 months ago

OK, Gotta finance a TX Sector, so Excalibur is going up for sale. It's in shweet shape (mostly) and I have spare aftermarket cpu board that started acting weird so i put the original back in, and the same same with a new driver board. WTF?! Anyway, I spent a bundle on them, and they're part of the package. The ramp has a little epoxy repair at the hard curve, but it works 100% and the machine looks pretty damn beauty for the most part. The cab has been tastefully repaired. I will take pics tomorrow.

It even features a translite signed by John Trudeau, for whatever that might mean to you.

Hadda lotta interest last time i mentioned this, so bear that in mind when asking price this time. Plus Tx-Sector needs.

PM me for price and more deets. Hoping to deliver to PAGG in a couple three weeks...

#10334 4 months ago

Cheddar: That Super Nova playfield looks pretty much like my Game Plan cocktail Star Trip playfield, only mirrored!
Kewl looking game!

#10343 4 months ago

Excalibur pics. I'll pull it out of the line up tomorrow to get actual cab pix.

#10349 4 months ago

Got a set of cab decals for Mousing Around that I got with my new acquisition that ima never gonna use. Pm if interested.

Also a new CPR Space Shuttle backglass.

I can bring both to PAGG.

Looking hard for some old Ballys:

Escape from the Lost World

Balls a Poppin.

#10466 3 months ago

I gotta CPR Gold Space Shuttle playfield up for sale. It's from the first run I think. I was gonna do a restore on my Shuttle, but mine ain't that bad and the machine I really want to restore is my Cyclone, and CPR now has Cyclone playfields back in stock, so a choice had to be made.

Can deliver to PAGG next week, or with a little "greasing of the wheel," CAX the week after. I don't really do shipping.

Stokin' for PAGG.

#10483 3 months ago

Looks like I found a Speakeasy! Still REALLY Looking for an Escape from the Lost World.

How about a Heavy Metal Meltdown?

Long Shot: A Trident Backglass????

Also, I have set of Williams displays from a Space Shuttle that are all good; I just replaced them with the led ones I got with the machine. No burn in or missing segments or anything. DM me to make an offer.

Going to PAGG next weekend. Can deliver or pick up.

#10570 3 months ago

Putting out feelers for a Devil Riders I might have for sale. PF: 9+, CAB: 6+, BG (mostly transparent by design): 7, HEAD PLASTICS and MOTORCYCLE GUY and NEON: 10. Works 95%. The right outlane save flipper coil locks on. Most likely a tranny on the mpu/sdb combo, but I noticed that messing with the connector to the coils occasionally fixes it, so... For now, I have the wire for that coil disconnected so it's playable except for that right save which you never can hit anyway (LOL). Everything else works as intended. Might need a few switches adjusted to make it more player-friendly. Too many other projects to have messed with it further.

Fun game... when it ain't kicking yer ass which is 90% of the time and summa the best callouts and taunts in pinball. Still has Italian operator tags and instruction cards.

Pics soon.

Trade for an Escape from the Lost World? Heavy Metal Meltdown?

#10581 3 months ago

I REALLY NEED an Interflip Dragon.
Please tell me one of you has one for me!

#10604 3 months ago
Quoted from dapperdan24:

Somebody must want a nice easy sale on their Cyclone? Anyone?

Sorry Daddio, my Cyclone ain't never going nowhere. In fact I'ma looking for a playfield for mine one of these days. Anyone want to trade their Cyclone cpr playfield for my Space Shuttle one? Anyone?

#10637 89 days ago

Shopping my DE Simpsons, and replacing almost everything. Just took out the populated ramp. It's in pretty good shape except for a missing chunk on the left side, right by the left up kick, so the ball sometimes takes a shortcut that way. LoL. Other than that it's just kinda dirty. For sale; make an offer.

Pm me if yer interested and want pics.

#10639 88 days ago

Guess I was a little unclear. Selling the populated ramp I took out of my DE Simpsons
