Quoted from SergioJ:

There was a playfield pic posted in the listing. Didn’t look like the game had been working in some time. It’s an Exhibit Supply Company game, so I would say less demand than the big manufacturers from that perspective. Very colorful with an interesting playfield layout and early bumper style. So from a visual perspective it looks cool. Reverse Flipper layout and probably “impulse Flippers” which is less desirable. All in all if it’s in decent cosmetic shape I would say no more than $250 as a project. You’re buying a piece of art in my opinion.

$250.00 waaaay more than I would have offered!

I agree not much demand. It doesn't seem like a very interesting table however, I would have taken it to either keep as a cool piece of history, or to find it a good home.

Quoted from DropTarget:

I posted a "price check" email last week on the Gondola, but didn't get any replies. She had sent me pics. the BG looked ok but no pics of the machine itself. She said that it's been sitting for like 40 years and doesn't know if all the parts are there.

ESCOs are beautiful machines, but I can guarantee that you will never come out on top if you sell it after buying it. Original parts are impossible to get. I paid 400 for a "working" Morocco that needed to be broken into. Shame on me, but I didn't do that before paying for it and lots of the logic had been removed. I'm at about 800 in total and it still isn't working 100% right.

I don't regret buying mine at all, but there isn't enough market for them to make it worth having unless it is going to be a long term keeper for you.

It looks like he has done some work on it. To me that does not sound like it is being flipped based on my understanding of the definition of being flipped.

And it is an OBO price.

If he bought it for $X and it is now listed less than 24 hours later for $X+ (OBO), it is being flipped.
Even if all he did was add clown vomit LEDs and "shop" it.

SS, did you read the facebook ad and when it was sold? It wasn't 24hrs ago. When you drive an 11hr rd trip, fix, clean and shop a non booting game I hope someone is kind enough to pop into your thread and consider you a flipper. Did you even read or look at my ad at all? Where do you get clown puke leds? I wish you luck trying to hold onto every game you ever buy and not change your mind on a title. I put a considerable amount of work into the pin and I value my time.

Thanks for the input. Good luck with getting yours up to 100% I was pretty much trying to save it from the trash heap, and either keep it as a piece of history or find it a happy home. I'm not in it for the $$$, bit wasn't going to offer much due to the scenario you've described.

Project Bally Nitro Ground Shaker . I own an auto shop and I traded work/labor for the machine. Is has a beautiful backglass, very nice playfield with minor wear along the bonus thousands. Lower cabinet has chipping on lower back and the backbox is solid, BUT someone screwed the lower left corner(facing the back box) together. It was neatly done, so a proper wood glue job would make it just fine. Back box outer frame painted black(why?) You see this a lot on this machine and Kiss.

No flashes on the MPU(have tested nothing), some corrosion from original battery. Not too bad, very repairable.

$650 Firm. NO SHIPPING

You're taking this personally. No I didn't look at the ads--either one. And I don't care.

It was a general statement about how it tends to happen:
someone jumps on a pin
takes it home
lists the pin with flowery and over-technical pin jargon that means almost nothing
they replace two dusty, crumbling rubbers
They add every spare LED they have to the easy to get places--just to get rid of them
looks at boards just to make sure that the batteries are from this century

-visit http://www.kahr.us to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC pinball resets or my Pinball 2000 H+V Video Sync Combiner kit

I went to see the Sheriff... backglass was toast, cabinet slathered in a cream colored paint, playfield missing a lot of paint in the yellows and bad crazing in the reds and blues... mechanicals and components complete and not horribly corroded. Nice coin door and entrance plate.

A small project not so much... nice sellers though, I grew up in the area and it was nice to visit that part of NoVa once again.

Why shouldn’t he take it personally? Around here being tagged as a flipper carries bad vibes and people start wagging their finger. Basically, the other poster and yourself accused the man of being a flipper without even bothering to take a look at his ad where he described all the things he did to this pin, such as remove and polish/tumble all of the metal parts.

Both of you ASSUMED flipper, did not bother to take the time to find out what’s true and would leave many with the thought he was flipping. Basically, it is called starting rumors someone would have to live down as you head along on your merry way.

If he took it personally I can’t blame him.

#15826 45 days ago

I normally don’t intrude in these things anymore, but I got to know Crispin back when I lived in NY. Good guy, and knowing him (and the rest of that social group) was a big part of me getting so involved in the hobby.

Knowing him it was probably an impulse buy, he got it cleaned up and working, and decided he just didn’t like it. Always been open and honest about games he buys and sells. his collection tends to have some oddballs from time to time and he sometimes buys games “sight unseen” and just doesn’t connect with them.

Hurricane here and the Whirlwind will be going up for auction eventually it says.
Morgantown WV
https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=1701&acctid=7396

I grabbed these both for $3100 with buyer premium. I had tax cert so did not have to pay taxes. A touch more than I wanted to pay, but I love projects. After talking to the guy I am not worried about the so called water issue. They got a little wet, but there is no cabinet swelling or anything. He also said whirlwind is flipping, so that one should be easy. If I can get a decent dollar for hurricane I will have a whirlwind for $1500.

I would be on the way to get these already if I wasn't trying to "cut back". The craziness has gone on long enough so I just can't but I would love to own that Cactus Jack's - that is a title I have not had in the past.

I did not; I talked to the seller and his son for a while, told him the game was worth the $200 (just not for me), and that he shouldn't settle for less... I called him back later in the day and the next guy in line bought the game an hour or so after I left... win/win for everyone.

It’s too bad you couldn’t figure out some sort of online bidding as well. I‘m sure someone would bite and you could make arrangements for Pinfest or shipping. It’s always good to help a local cause.

If anyone seriously wants it, I'll put your bid in. Bid are taken till tomorrow, so be quick. I have no idea where it's at price wise. I can stop in the bar it's located in tomorrow and take more pics too. I can remove and stick it in my storage unit for gas $$ and a pretzel cheesesteak at Pinfest.

Mars God of War listed here on pinside as a “parts” game. Located in Rural Retreat VA and seller is asking $300. I don’t know anything about the seller but the game looks nice cosmetically. Hate to see that one get parted out....does look like it needs stuff including plastics.
