    This pic is from a local CL ad. I don't know what all is going on in the pic but the trees in the background don't look like the kind of pines that would grow around here. The vehicle in the background looks like a transporter from Tatooine.

    Well, I guess we are supposed to figure out what kind of pines the OP lives near to since he has not shared where he lives.

    Tatooine

    Sounds good to me, glad there are Pinball Games in Star Wars, one more thing for the Jedi to try and master

    The tapestry on the left reads Charlestown south Carolina in mirror letters if your looking for a clue. Those pines look like theyre from the rockies though.

    Dodge caravan or Chrysler town & country

    Game looks decent, tho.

    That is odd. Looks like someone is holding up the banner on the left, very close to the game to impede view. Piles of garbage bags to the right seem weird too.

    Didn't notice that at first, but you are correct. That is odd.
    Trying to hide the location? additional mess? Serial killer?

    It looks like they are trying to block the sun, at least it appears that way to me

    I thought the banner text was like Czech or something, but then I realized it's just the back of the blanket, so the text is upside down and backwards.

    "of Charleston"
    "Founded 1770"
    "Anilorachtuos" is weird, because you get a few google hits from Oregon and South Carolina for "Anilorac Htous", and they're really scrambled and weird. You might have found the UFO conspiracy here.

    Reflection reveals a modified shipping container with a hinged door. Northwest preppers making room in their underground bunker...

    Custom trailer or box truck with a snow capped mountains logo. Evergreens in the background (I think). My guess is a motocross, snowboard or BMX hauler for events.

    I'm sure they're holding up the banner\blanket to take the glare off the playfield so it can be seen clearly. This leads me to believe that they do not know how to take the glass off so this was probably a storage find or cleanout find and that they are not pinballers. Or not.

    seller is just playing it safe whilst selling on craigslist - meet 'em at
    an empty (construction) lot... instead of at your house. (just bring a long extension cord)

    #17 1 year ago

    This is as good as the Roswell memo!

    There's definitely some conspiracy here...

    I don't remember seeing Dodge Caravans in Star Wars. Did Lucas' add them in the Special Editions?

    #19 1 year ago

    That's a Chris Burandt edition snowmobile trailer, every snowmobiler's dream trailer.

    I have seen on south Florida Craigslist mountains in the background of local stuff for sale down here, always a BS add.

    Is there a question for us here?

    BIGFOOT!

    Here is the CL ad. It is located in Greenville South Carolina. $3800.00 price tag. And I cannot speak to the flora and fauna in this area.

    asheville.craigslist.org link

    OP:his is a vintage 1990 Whirlwind Pinball Machine by Williams. Has normal wear, but works great. Located in Greenville SC.

    But FUNRISEGUY just blew his cover now we know he lives in the Greenville S. C. area.

    No, the Pine crested mountains near a RV trash dump in Florida!
