Saturday I drove 3 hours one way to look at a Whitewater that came up for sale on craigslist asking $4300.00 , when I first saw the add it was less than 48 hrs. old , I called the guy & he said he was really surprised that he had already been offered more $ for it than he was asking & that because of that the price was now a "little higher" I said yeah whatever ok can I come see it over the weekend (this was almost 2 weeks ago) he said sure but that the best offer he had on it so far was $5000.00 & that I shouldn't bother driving all the way down unless I was ready to come up to 5 , I told him I was gonna pass at 5 ..... several days go by & then he texts me & says that the guy who offered was having trouble coming up with all the money & was asking for more time to get it all & if I wanted to come down this weekend I could have it for $4700.00 I said alright I will come look at it but I wasn't really happy about the way this all was going anyways after finally getting there Saturday morning & seeing the pin I was disappointed , the playfield was very dirty and looked as if it hadn't been shopped in perhaps 10 years , had 1 little burn spot near the mine kickout ,upper playfield had some lines in it maybe planking a little bit ,faded cabinet but not too bad & some paint flaking & falling off under the DMD display on backbox , mismatched flipper bats , some broken boulders ,the topper was on it but didn't appear to work/look as good as it should but it did seem to play well & ramps were all intact anyways I told him $4700.00 was too much & that I wasn't comfortable at $4500.00 but would consider doing a deal for the orig. asking price of $4300.00 he said he didn't think he could do that as he was selling for his uncle and if he called him he would probably say no so I told him well it was a long drive but I'm out GLWTS he let me leave but then when I was about 5 or 6 min. away he called (I didn't answer) then he sent me a text saying that he had talked to his Uncle & if I wanted to come back he would sell it for $4300.00 I just kept right on going ....never even answered him ,anyhow its now Monday & I am wondering if I should have gone back just thought I would do a poll here & get the consensus on Pinside to weigh in
