Please see link for the origination of this thread- T2 shot me an email last week asking if I was still interested in the games he had talked about- After a few emails/ texts back and forth I made arrangements to run to St Louis last Friday


FF a year after this thread was posted and I find myself in St Louis! I picked up four pallets of games/ PF's

Finally got them into the shop and somewhat sorted and this is the list:

Blue Chip- cabinet and head
Gaucho- Cabinet and head #1
Gaucho- Cabinet and Head #2
El Toro- Cabinet and head
Wild Card- Cabinet only
Hula Hula- Cabinet and head
Around the world- Play Filed only
Fiesta Cabinet and head - no backglass
Lawman- head and play field only
Bronco Cabinet and head
Eager Beaver- Head and play field only
Old Conely Island Head and cabinet ( SS from Game Plan)
A couple more PF's that I have yet to identify

So now the fun begins! I will begin going through the games and see what is complete and what might need a part of two- if anybody is interested in any of these please let me know- I'd like to get them into Pinsiders hands as-is and make a bit of room but if I don't get much interest I'll start down the road of getting them going again one at a time

Here they are parked in my front room- the wife was NOT amused...
Hula Hula has seen better days but I can get this back in shape- all the wood is there
Around the world PF is really really nice- I hope somebody can use it!
This Gaucho was on the top and got pretty dusty
Gaucho number 2 is much cleaner
I really like the looks of Hula hula- this one might be a keeper when it's done
Old Coney Island is a SS - might just go ahead and try my hand at PF touch-up and restore / clearcoat on this one- unless somebody needs it as but the PF is rough
Fiesta is missing BG- thanks Dirtflipper for the assist on getting the title- if anybody has a BG I'm interested this game is in pretty good shape and possibly a keeper for me

Nice haul ↑ Christmas comes early.

Oh wow, you definitely have the project queue now!

Nice save.

#5 9 years ago

Congrats! Always wanted to try out a Lawman.

#6 9 years ago

You are going to be busy for some time it looks like

#7 9 years ago

Thanks guys!

For now I'll get the stand alone playfields dusted off and list them in the marketplace, as well as the heads without cabinets. I'll be busy this winter for sure- enough to keep me out of trouble for awhile I think...

Hoov- Lawman is head and PF only- sad but true- if you know of a headless cabinet somewhere with a trashed play-field we can try to get them together and make a complete game-

That goes for eager beaver as well- I think somebody was looking for scorecards awhile ago- not sure if the PF I have has cards in it or not- If anybody knows of a trashed eager beaver please let me know- Ultimately I'd like to get a working game(s) into somebody's hands rather than part out.

I was really disappointed that Wild Card did not have a head- that would have been a great game to get back in somebody's game-room- but there is always hope....

That around the world playfield is just beautiful.

Nice haul sir!

Staying out of trouble is no way to have fun. Just sayin...

Quoted from slawnski:

My wife would not be amused either had I done that, until she killed me. Your wife must be very understanding of your addiction.

Nice haul by the way.

They are all down in the shop now-Understanding she is... Still- she was not convinced that just throwing a tablecloth over them would serve as our Thanksgiving table....

#11 9 years ago

Dang, those look like they would have made nice coffee tables and wall hangers!!!

#12 9 years ago

Pics of the mystery playfields?

#13 9 years ago

I'll get down to the basement tonight and post shots of the loose playfields this weekend

You're a funny man t2! Thanks for putting this together Most of these will make it into players hands again.

#14 9 years ago

If anybody has one- I need a 1's score reel for the Chicago Coin Bronco (seen missing in the last picture above) . Dug around a little this morning before work and i don't have a spare- Just tried the parts for sale here and didn't get a hit there either- checked Ebay and I still have to contrast and compare whats listed to see if they will work- but at first blush does not look like it...

I'll eventually get a list of wanted parts for these into the parts wanted section but if anybody has one laying around they want to sell- I'm your guy

#15 9 years ago

Here are the other playfields that are without cabinetsimage-595.jpgimage-595.jpgimage-257.jpgimage-257.jpgimage-110.jpgimage-110.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

1. Chicago Coin Pirate Gold
2. Gottlieb Sheriff/Lawman
3. Williams Eager Beaver
4. Chicago Coin Firecracker

#17 9 years ago

Thanks Alex-

Pirate Gold and Firecracker were the hold-outs

Not sure what to do with the playfields- I'll most likely get them stripped down and cleaned up- then put them in the market - hopefully they are better than what somebody already has.

I've started to work on El Toro- I'll start a new thread with that rebuild

Thanks again to t2 for the opportunity and to all those Pinsiders who have helped so far
