That seems like a good price.

I've always been a little envious reading of the great bargain finds others have had. Nags was my one lucky encounter:

I had never seen a Nags in person, but looking at books and online, my daughter always commented that she liked it a lot.

One day on Craigslist, saw an ad for "2 Pinball Machines - $500" and a fuzzy picture of a Nags and Williams Clubhouse. I almost feinted! There was no phone number so I sent a quick e-mail and prayed.... A nice lady called back in about 15 minutes and said I was the first one to call but that it must be a popular game because a lot of other people left messages after mine. 20 minutes later I was at their house and bought both machines.

I sold the Clubhouse for $200 (it had some major hacks on it). The Nags needed new plastics (Pinball Rescue), a nicer back glass (Shay) and the platter motor/gearbox rebuilt (PBR). I typically rebuild all the pop bumpers but since the caps have not been repro'd and I didn't want white bases with cream caps, I still have the original caps. They are actually OK and at least they were not broken/missing.

A fun game to play - a lot of luck and nudging involved - it's a favorite at parties! If someone ever does redo the caps, I'm in!

Ha! - Warm LED's. I'm not usually an LED guy on my games but I thought it worked well with the colored horse selection. When the game is in play, only 1 bumper is ever lit at a time so this ends up being more of an "attract mode" feature.
