    Saw a commercial last night for a new show on Discovery Channel in Canada, Vintage Tech Hunters. It starts next Monday at 9pm eastern. In the second episode at 9:30, they "take the worlds first talking pinball machine to Dallas to be restored".
    Thought people may be interested to watch it. I want to know what it gets valued at.
    I wonder who they're taking it to.

    Watched this last night. Kinda hard to watch as it seems scripted, but it was interesting.
    They took the Gorgar to Fun! Billiards in Dallas hassellcastle . They said they paid $500 for it, Fun said they put $1000 & that it would be worth $3000 to $3500. Seems high for that game. Pinside database lists it as $850-1000.
