Quoted from JosiahCox:
Not sure if this is the case here in this specific instance but often times I won't provide my full cache of photos until I have a serious inquiry from a buyer.
Not trying to pick a fight or anything. Just saying there could be other thoughts processes at work here.
Any ways, GLWTS on Tron. I'd love to own one someday.
I am going to provide clarity to any future sellers/collectors/owners of the entire region. This is not a "fight" statement
I have owned over 600+ machines (including NIB, prototype, low production, etc), low ball NO ONE based on condition you get the proper value or asking price, still average between 20-30 machines at any given time in my home, many WPC machines have been with me for over 20 years, collected for over 26 years, teched over 20 years, operated for over 10 years, owned two other TAF, most senior collectors know who I am in the region, and have the physical cash in hand with no need for trades.
I am not "new" at the process of sales.
You will most likely see me at the shows this year based on my schedule.
If you have the machine I want, you get the full cash in hand, and I bring the necessary tools and keep to break it down and haul it away. I only require a hand written receipt sold "as is" with signatures. For high and machines a witness of sale is required.
I would say I am a serious buyer.
I don't "!/$@ around".
Strike when the iron is hot or move on.
This was called "seller flaking" and "sales phishing" the pinball world.
I really don't like people wasting others time, and I do not do it either. I don't drive 200+ miles without full evaluation photos. This is 2016, not 1986. It is easy and not difficult.
The only thing else I can think of is that something is wrong with the machines that the seller knows I will find it during the technical inspection. I dont whine about little issues if the cosmetics are superb, and the mechanical parts are unbroken. If I can replace something cheaply, I will do it myself, I have skills and tools to do the work.
If Brian wants to retort fine, but I was respectful and patient and then saw this BS posting above.
Don't post of you do not want to sell.
The above posting was "sales phishing" AGAIN.
