Thanks JR for the heads up.
Someone local could ask to go see it in person just to see what the seller would do. It looks like a foreign scammer from the butchered english language.

Nope, he's there. I bout the his Volley, although not the Volley pictured in the ad.

#16853 11 days ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

I feel that I should warn everyone here about a Craigslist seller who is using lifted photos in his ad. If you want to split hairs, he doesn't name the machines he's selling, or claim that the photos are his games, so you could say he isn't actually being dishonest. However, proceed with caution here, and ask for actual photos of the games he's selling if you're dealing with him.
The "Volley" has been sold, but it's not the same one shown in the photo.
The "King of Diamonds" is actually a "Diamond Jack", and not nearly in the condition of the "KOD" pictured.
He does have a Williams "Darling" for sale, but who knows if it's the same one shown in the photos.

Huh, I was speaking with him the other day. Prices were all over the place! I asked for photos but never received any. The drive was too far for me to bother.

Thanks for the public service, it's good to be part of a group that helps out.

What games did you ask about? What was he offering? He didn't even have a "King of Diamonds", but a tired "Diamond Jack" that I hear he wanted 3K for!

#16855 11 days ago

Nice Lady Luck here. Used to be mine so I can verify top working condition. I'm sure maybe someday I'll miss it. Nice example for sure. Can't keep them all!

Looks like the person you sold it to got tired of it pretty quickly. It's a decent player, but not a good looker. I play Vic Camp's when I get down there. I believe I still have the high game on his.

He's played it a bunch at my place along with the rest of us. It's really a top game, but with my 21 now set up again, I guess it's kind of redundant.

It was a package deal with another game just to help make some room around here and when they bring a truck and cash on Super Bowl Sunday, I say lets load em up!

Nah, just a product of the public education system right here in the good ol' USA. (ducking)

Volley. Wanted $400 but pics never came through so that was red flag for me being far enough away.

The original Darling price, as I understood it, was $1,500!!!!!

When did you talk to him? Did he offer you a free jukebox if you bought two machines?

The good news is that the seller is seeking only "instreaded" potential buyers, a nonexistent constituency.

Jukebox plus Volley for 400.

Sounded like a high school kid.

Is what it is, could have been legit just new to selling.

Yeah, but post photos of the actual items you're selling, or at least state otherwise. Anyone should know that.

Lack of common sense is not illegal. It should hurt but it's not illegal. See it way too often.

#16867 10 days ago
Quoted from DropTarget:

Yep... not only more people in jail here than any other country on earth, but also highest per capita, and over 20% behind bars without a sentence.

Prison business sure is profitable. Unfortunately, the lobbyists tend to argue for stiffer penalties across the board... because, you know... can't make money when your "customers" go home.

Of course, you and I pay the bill for this.

Land of the free? Oh well. Too topical for pinball. Let's roll on... glad pinball isn't illegal.

Actually, in some cities, it still is. "Gambling equipment not zoned for residential areas"... *sigh*

LOL luckily not... just too many political podcasts during EM rebuild time.

Of course it is. That's why everybody wants to live here.

The reason prisons aren't overcrowded in many other countries is that they simply execute, maim, or beat lawbreakers senseless for seemingly minor infractions. Maybe that would work here.

Yikes... never thought of it that way. :/

There's a 'stooges episode with a "marble machine" in a prison.

"Zig Zag" isn't so bad. Maybe change that to "Darling".

Darling is fun to play with others though...

After working on the one at MOP, Road Race wasn't all that bad.
So I will make the following substitutions:
Gottlieb Airport
Williams Toledo
Bally 70's El Toro (or ANY 60's Bally other than On-Beam).

#16882 8 days ago
Quoted from CactusJack:

Bally 70's El Toro (or ANY 60's Bally other than On-Beam).

Heretic! My Grand Tour, Bazaar and Sky Divers are all very fun to play.

El Toro does look boring though.

#16883 8 days ago

El Toro is the game I will get to spend all eternity with in the afterlife.

#16884 8 days ago

It's hard to bag on almost any title on here without pissing somebody off. It's all subjective. Heck, even Rogo is on 3 Pinsiders wishlist.

#16885 8 days ago

Road Race is the most awesome EM pinball game ever! (Know anybody looking to buy one?)

#16886 8 days ago

I don't but the art isn't so bad and somebody probably has fond memories playing it in their youth.

It is a cool looking game. As is Bally El Toro.

Maybe you can have the cabinet made into a coffin so it'll stay with you in the afterlife.

#16889 8 days ago

I'll be honest, its been 45 years and I still haven't found another El Toro to play!

Except the Williams version that I own. That particular game is such a butt kicker I can't see it ever leaving.

As far as the Bally one, I do suppose it will be waiting for me somewhere when all is said and done.

*gasp* no Cosmos? Dixieland? Campus Queen?

Would sub Big Ben for Toledo in 3" Williams world.

Anyway, eh, nothing to add lately to the CL finds. Slim pickin's around here lately...

Same here. Looks like we've all done good work fishing it out.

Thought I saw a mustache man on CL a while ago, but this is what we got today.

Really? I could hook them up!

Quoted from jrpinball:

You have a Rogo? Well it is classic Christensen. Hard to not find something redeemable in almost any pinball.

#16894 8 days ago

No, it's not mine. My wife's brother-in-law has one. Very nice all around. Mint coin door and back door on it. They never play it.

#16895 8 days ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

They never play it.

Ha, well there you go.

#16896 8 days ago

If one could only have one pinball machine in their house while growing up and it was RoGo, that would be a friend of mine.

#16897 8 days ago
Quoted from o-din:

Well, it was a series of happenstance events. He's only had the "RoGo" maybe five or six years. His brother moves people and moves stuff, so he came upon this "RoGo". I got it cleaned up and working for him. It had a brand new chime assembly in it, but apparently the person who installed it didn't know how to connect it, so they ran lamp cord up to the score reels to power the chimes!!! I undid all that, and hooked it up correctly. So now it basically just sits in his finished basement. My family goes up there to visit once in a while, and I usually play a game or two, then ask myself why! I'm pretty sure he'd sell it.

#16898 8 days ago

A buddy of mine grew up with a RoGo in his house. His dad still has it, but it doesn't work any more. I offered my services or a trade at one time, but that never happened.

#16899 8 days ago
Quoted from o-din:

His dad still has it, but it doesn't work any more.

Better that way!

#16900 8 days ago

Hey, O-din, pretty sure we have an El Toro in Banning. Come out and come to the realization you are better off without one.

Funny story: last year while working the show, some guy came up and asked if there was an El Toro in the house (apparently, with 500 pinballs, it takes too much effort to look for yourself). I showed him to the Bally one. He said that was the one he was looking for.

I think he may have only plays 5 balls..........
