Quoted from CactusJack:

Hasn't she graduated yet?

Yes, law student now with aspirations of becoming a lawyer.......

#5002 3 years ago

It went up another $1000 while I was sleeping. I have decided that taking a long nap is much more affordable than dealing in high end woodrails.

#5003 3 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

Personally, I didn't think the gameplay looked all that bad on the video, but a very knowledgeable local woodrail expert (he owns almost every single-player Gottlieb woodie) agreed that although it's rare, it's a dog.

Mebbe so, but a couple other things: I don't know much about woodrails, but I don't recall seeing a pin from this era (or any earlier than this) that had 4 flippers. Also, the kick-out saucer between the lower flippers seems like a very unusual feature.

This is one I'd be most curious to play . . . but nowhere near 12K curious.

#5004 3 years ago
Quoted from Heretic_9:

I don't recall seeing a pin from this era (or any earlier than this) that had 4 flippers.

It isn't that unusual as most of the early flipper games had more than two, sometimes six.

#5005 3 years ago

I, for one would like to see all these woodrails.... all this Americana, stay right here in the U.S.

But at least we still have some wonderful collections here like Richard Lawnhurst's (probably the nicest in the world). Now THERE'S a collection that needs to stay in the states and go into a museum here. Also hoping the Pacific Pinball Museum will finally find a suitable building that can house all the woodrails that Gordon Hasse donated and all the other ones they have amassed. Other fine collections are here if you know where to look.

But even more so, I'm glad there are people who keep the love of these EM's alive. Going to the shows and looking around, I don't think there is too much danger of the interest in solid-states dying out. That's not what my eyes are telling me anyway. And nothing better when dyed in the wool, solid-state people come around to the EM's.

Maybe it transformed itself when it went back in time to 1958!?!

(money's just too good to pass up)

Amazing prices not limited just to their woodrails. A Gottlieb coin box went for over $200. this morning ! It might not have been in quite as nice a condition, but I bought one of these for 1/4 of that price not very long ago -- including the shipping.

#5012 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

For less than that total you can get these two.

Hmnn,

Sea Wolf appeared to be in the back of dirtflipper's vehicle yesterday. Coincidence maybe?

Edited

#5013 3 years ago

A nice looking Derby Day for $700 buy it now with $2.83 shipping.

same seller has an El Dorado for (choke, gasp) $7,999

#5016 3 years ago

His Sea Wolf will look nice next to his Gusher.......

#5017 3 years ago

Gusher is missing a bumper cap, so they should only be asking $4979

#5018 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Glamor is now over $12,000.
For less than that total you can get these two.

$15000 finish.

3 bidders over $14000.

Who says the woodrail market is dead

Hope it had $175.00 dollars in coins still inside it.

Picture taking is still an elusive skill for some folks

Good! I'm thinking about passing on a couple of my real nice ones including this colector quality Steeple-Chase at a fraction of the price of this one and half the price of either the Gusher or Sea Wolf. Just to free up some space and let somebody else appreciate them. Feel free to PM me if anybody is interested.

This one has a perfect backglass and an NOS playfield installed. All original cabinet paint as well.

Thanks! And I have a heck of a 2 for deal if anybody is interested.

It is a very nice NOS playfield. Smooth as butter. That's an old pic before I flipped the flippers.

Somebody hurry up and get this before he gets banned from this thread as well.

It's got your name written all over it boob. You do want to be part of the fun crew don't you?

Already in. Thanks to guys like you, I'm restoring a Jacks Open. I always say that EMs are a necessity in the pinball world: they're the only games you're still able to play when you're drunk.

#5028 3 years ago

And nothing is better than a vintage woodrail for that occasion. Ask me how I know....

#5029 3 years ago

Not sure if this has been posted yet. Not a full game, just the head. Perhaps if you are local, you can wheel and deal for it.

That's been for sale for at least a year. Backglass is pretty flaky.

Decent price. but PF just above flippers is a little weak (start of planking and other wear).

Gone - I would have bought it too.... I owned one many years ago with a terrible cabinet that was painted white. Sold it not thinking I'd never run into another one for 30 years.

I played this title almost every day as a kid at Nellis AFB in Vegas.

#5042 3 years ago

BIN lowered to $799 on the North Star mentioned above:

Quoted from pinhead52:

Kill or save? Pretty rough

It's a $300.00 Save.

#5045 3 years ago

How do you guys take the head off an EM for transport? I've bought a couple but haven't had to do it. Do you just cut and mark the wires?

#5046 3 years ago

Cut the wires? what's the matter with you?
Just unplugs!

#5047 3 years ago
Quoted from Shiny_balls:

Cut the wires? what's the matter with you?

Are there plugs? LOL Sorry I haven't looked at my project EMs close enough to know there are plugs. I guess they're in the bottom cabinet right?

#5048 3 years ago

Yes, inside top backbox.

Quoted from dmbjunky:

Who gave this guy his EM card?

#5050 3 years ago

Just cut the wires...then when you sell it say it's "probably just a fuse"
