One of my first games ever. and still a favorite. I got a machine in 1997 that was in the process being parted out. No backglass, crappy playfield. Lot's of missing parts. Luckily repro glass was already available and I got one. Procured various parts and got it running. Did some rudimentary paint repair and sprayed it with a clear and it was faithfully part of my collection until about 2010. I only have room for 5 machines and after selling Centaur and Central Park and adding TZ, IJ, LOTR and FH to my TAF that I have had since 1998 CF was taken apart and relegated to the garage for storage.
I sold LOTR and am bringing CF back to life. I purchased a new repro PF maybe 10 years ago. Along the way some of the parts from CF were cannibalized into another project so I am buying various bits and pieces. The cabinet is beat although the artwork still looks OK. I am not going to "restore" it this round (who knows in the future), but I am going to swap in the new PF.
CF will ride again soon.
