Yes, but this James Dean cabinet is a completely different color scheme.

Whoops, just deleted.

Looks like a Bally Fireball EM (?) hiding in the junk? Is that the home version?

I've emailed to see how much he wants for it.

SS home version.

#14708 3 years ago

Not that I'm super interested, but he's only asking $175. I'm guessing a home version game though not worth too much?

#14709 3 years ago

Its not worth much and it is junk unless you have a small child that would enjoy it.

Ok that's what I figured. It's too far away for me to even really care about anyway.

Agreed.

HA! Great photo!

Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel. What a character. What a legend!

#14715 3 years ago

Not sure if anyone posted this one....Palooka for $450.00

I saw that one and it's still for sale. Pretty game.

I picked up an El Toro (no, not that one) I found on CL for $400 last weekend.

I had never played this version, it was a long drive on a Friday up by Magic Mountain and I only had the CL pics to go by. It looked pretty decent but when I got there I was pleasantly surprised how nice the playfield and backglass were and how cared for it looked inside. All nice and shiny. It didn't take long to fix the small issues and put new rubbers on and we were playing it that night.

Another great two player game that is here to stay!

O-din welcome back
WMS EL Toro is a very good 2P pin.
Your BG looks very very nice,
mine has issues in the letters in the name.

#14718 3 years ago

Yeah, but you've got an Eager Beaver that I would drool over.

El Toro will have to do for now. No, it's a great playing machine!

#14719 3 years ago

That King Pin is just begging to be played..........

El Toro looks cool too.....

Your garage looks to be a bit congested!

#14720 3 years ago

Don't worry Hoov, you will get first shot at it. Maybe when I finish my Skill Pool project I will find them too similar. But I like playing them both for now.

Quoted from NicoVolta:

Nothing wrong with an EM as your first game. Actually, I think they're easier to start with all things considered. However, you'll have 16 score reels to disassemble and clean vs. a single player game. But hey, all EM's take time to go through anyway... so if you're meticulous and mechanically inclined... go for it!
Fan-Tas-Tic is a good game -and hey- middle-pop alert! This is one of only three pins with 3" flippers and a middle-pop bumper between them. I think everyone should have at least one middle-pop game in their collection. They're really cool and the layout is different enough to teach you new flipping skills.

I just picked up a Fan Tas Tic myself, fun game. $200 on Craigslist. Game lit up but wasnt working, no keys. Simple fixes. It worked 10 minutes after getting it home.

seal that quick! What a beauty!

#14725 3 years ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

lol! That's why I bought the other game to put two together. Nobody makes this glass and I've seen too many people looking for one. So now at least BGresto will have something to work with. He couldn't do it with that one. I'm not even sure what the original color scheme is supposed to be as the ones on IPDB vary.

Awesome another Fan-Tas-Tic in MI. Didn't see that one pop up on CL where was it at?

Welcome back. Ya know a few years ago we drove all the way to Vegas for our El Toro. And for other reasons, but mostly for the El Toro. I still think it was worth the drive. The one you picked up would have been much closer to us. Let me know when you cruise up the 5 past downtown again, you can make a beer stop here.

#14729 3 years ago

Man for 400 dollars you struck GOLD! That backglass is perfect. Looks like a nice game to play. Like Hoov said....That Kingpin is begging to be played!

#14730 3 years ago
Quoted from MrArt2u:

At one time I drove from Yorba Linda to El Toro to work and back. Sometime during the 80s. Well El Toro no longer exists and I no longer make that drive. Thank goodness.

That Skill Pool has a great playfield too and looks like it would be fun to play too. Like the stand-up target in the center.

#14732 3 years ago

I have a Skill Pool many years now and game play is excellent!

#14733 3 years ago
Quoted from Vic_Camp:

I know you do. I sent Steve at BGresto a pic of your backglass off IPDB so he could get the colors right. It's a fun game.

I wish someone (read Shay) would just screen one. Just about everyone with the game needs a glass.

This is true! But BGresto may be the only option on this one. And once it's done it will be available for anyone that wants one.

Quoted from o-din:

I'm pretty sure Shay made some kind of arrangement with the Royal Authority so that he can legally screen print and sell Williams backglasses.

#14738 3 years ago

Yes, I just got my Williams Jungle glass and it is awesome.

I'm sure he would be open to more titles. The reverse wedge heads seem like an obvious place to start.

#14739 3 years ago

For some reason, only one link per post is working, so ...

1949 Pin-Bowler

#14740 3 years ago

1954 Hawaiian Beauty

seattle.craigslist.org link

#14741 3 years ago

1954 Diamond Lill

seattle.craigslist.org link

#14742 3 years ago

I'm sure as soon as I get my Skill Pool glass from BGresto that Shay will do a run. That is almost a given.

#14743 3 years ago

Well, I hope you get it soon then!

#14744 3 years ago

I still need to send it off, but he has been quick to reply and says he can make a real nice one with the better one of the two I have. There aren't too many good pics for reference that I have found, but I'm sure he knows what he is doing.

#14745 3 years ago

Five games in So-Cal: inlandempire.craigslist.org link

Surf champ $750.00
Jack in the box $450.00
Jumping jack $350.00
Dealer choice $375.00
Amigo $250.00

Or says he'll sell all for $2200.00 firm

This has to be an April Fools prank...

#14747 3 years ago

Link didn't work when I pasted it. Type "pinball" on CL Ann Arbor and look at the Free Pinball ad.

#14748 3 years ago

Pinside has been adding extra characters to CL links lately. You just need to remove them.
This should work:
"annarbor.craigslist.org link

And yes, its clearly an April fools joke. Or I hate whoever gets it.

#14749 3 years ago

The guy has a point....an El Dorado is a heavy machine. A few months ago, he gave away his Mermaid because he was allergic to fish.

#14750 3 years ago

Maybe the prank is on the person who lives at that address. Could be an enemy of the poster. If someone shows up, there could be a battle. Nice move...
