Quoted from Concretehardt:
WC... If I buy a pin in Canada can I just drive up and pick it up? Is there special paperwork that needs filled out ect to bring it back to the US?
No paperwork needed to come back to the US as long as it was made here.
Quoted from dasvis:
Not really. I liked the Seattle venue better. Hotels were cheaper & there were many more bars and restaurants within walking, err, staggering distance.
Seattle center was awesome, I wish it was still there too. But I imagine that Tacoma is a lot cheaper as well as larger and a whole lot easier to get games in and out of.
I ate some B+ sushi walking distance from the Tacoma show...spacing on the name though.
Quoted from wcbrandes:
im mode based as well as per collection. This has none? It does appear to have some great shots. Heading back to pinball museum in Seattle tomorrow but never have seen this there. Anyone know where one is close to Seattle?
According to my handy iPhone app it says there are two congo's on route in Seattle
1) the neighbor lady
2) John John's game room
I like Congo
Be sure to tell Charlie he needs to buy one
See ya then bud,
You need a LAH too
Quoted from Chuck_Sherman:
Two dirtbags caught
Stolen pinball machine pops up on Craigslist, pair arrested in Vancouver
Bro pictures and small description takes maybe 20min a game.
For THOUSANDS of dollars that's not that unreasonable of a request.
Got a nice Indy500 for trade or sale
Sub and speaker upgrade
Full red powder coat trim
I asked, but unfortunately he is not interested. He is interested in TAF with some cash coming your way if you're interested.
The lineup had recently changed
I was there a week ago and all the pins were in really nice shape
Yeah, why not...I've really been enjoying a lot of the 80s pins.
I didn't think I would like a game without multiball, then skateball came along and I dig that.
I also enjoyed playing a friend's Mars Trek and Gold Strike.
Updated: Traded, no longer available
AMH #16 on the chopping block

Can you hold on to that Solar Fire till Sunday?
I'll probably get that with the Big Game
Quoted from Iamdarras:
GK is about three blocks away from my place. I have 11 Great games in my space on free play. I might be down to host a warm up get together before th tourney if anybody is down. I'm also on the pinball map. 625 NW everett 110.
Dude, I'd love to come by
Your games are in fantastic shape
Long shot but would anybody from this area be traveling to the Midwest area this year?
Trying to get an empty cabinet to a buddy, will comp deliver for some really cool pinball stuff.
Quoted from pin-pimp:
Market is tough here, much better in Oregon and Washington.
I don't mind driving part way if I could take enough in the trailer to make it worth it
Lots more EM colectors in the seattle area
You're a drive but I'm glad I made the trek!
Thanks again for that Solar Fire, I really love that game

Quoted from markmon:
So I haven't been playing much and some of my higher end games are starting to collect some dust and it feels like they should go to someone that might actually play them. Prices are high, but condition is good and warrants the prices. If anyone wants pics let me know and I'll post some if there's interest.
Not looking for trades unless they're things I can sell for more than the asking price of the games I'd be trading. Want cash, not bank, paypal, etc.
Cirqus Voltaire $7500 - Clean inside and out, playfield in great condition. Has playfield overlay on it (not mylar, but the free floating one that looks iike a clear coat and protects).

These are incredible games
Quoted from SadSack:
I'm a pacific northwest buyer. I don't sell on pinside because pinsiders don't make good customers as far as my experience goes. I've bought several machines out of Washington and Idaho.
I'd be happy to post in the JPOP thread, but I've been banned there for over a year because I told them all they had been ripped off when I was -yet again - the asshole trolling.
I'm just wondering why everyone is so sensitive about the issue.
You must have bad luck, every pinsider I've done a deal with has been really good.

Quoted from toyotaboy:
Doesn't seem to be too many posts about Oregon (portland/vancouver WA to be exact), but figured this is a good thread to post in.
So me and my wife vacationed in Portland. OR about a year ago, actually we are flying in again this friday for a week to go during the worst weather period (which is still way nicer than Chicago is right now). Basically we LOVE the area and the culture and are seriously planning on moving there in the next 2-5 years. Last time we were out there we checked out ground kontrol, some local bar pinball, voodoo donut. Wondering what the collector scene is like (beyond just looking at a map). Any local clubs or tournaments that happen on a regular basis?
More importantly since homes with basements seem to be a little more obscure than in the midwest, what does everyone do for gamerooms? Does anyone build pole barns to create an arcade outside of the house?
Good week to visit
Monday tournament at Cbar starts at 6pm (don't be late!)
Cbar has excellent games and really good food
Tuesday tournament at Lutz (7pm)
If you want to catch some home games hit me up
As far as basements go...
Most older homes have them and new homes do not.
Our real estate market has dramatically risen in last few years.
East and West Portland are quite different in prices as well.
Northern Cali while technically not part of the PNW, i feel it's close enough. if you want to get crazy this thread was started by a Canadain!!!! Doesn't that disqualify PNW???
Quoted from HighVoltage:
Uhh, no, it just proves what none-'murican-centrics would know: Vancouver, -BC- is the -definitive- PNW!!!!! (beat you by one !)
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:
Northern Cali too then!!
There's a Dialed In prototype at Seattle Pinball Musuem for a week or two if anyone wants to give it a go.
Old Dutch and Cheezies is the real deal...
Both on amazon but don’t bring those fake Ketchup chips to a pin trade.
Btw it is an nice Orbitor 1
Is anyone here an expert at board work?
Have a problem that is way past my abilities.
Quoted from nwpinball:
If you don't mind driving, there will be a repair party in Milton, WA at James Edes' house at the end of February with people that could help you look at and teach you to repair your own board(s). We will be doing a bunch around Washington State leading up to the show. Do Portland area folks ever do repair parties? It seems like you have enough collectors to do them.
I’ve met him before, thanks for the suggestion.
Little more about the problem,
It’s a Sleic boardset from an IO Moon. I’ve asked a few professionals in PDX but they either declined or are stumped as well.
One plug between the video board and the cpu was plugged in backwards. Sending 12v to the 5v. Now the game boots and goes into attract mode but no switches or dmd work. It needs new rom chips burned as well.
So there’s little to no online help resources. I do have a copy of schematics though. Do you think anyone there could tackle this? Not your everyday problems, don’t mind the drive but would hate to waste anybody’s time.
Pair of Mario Kart GP 2 linked arcade games. Work great will trade for pinball or $5500 for the pair.
My buddy, who’s not on pinside, is selling a huo jjp potc LE.
Low plays and fantastic playfield.
Pm me and I could put you in touch.
