As some of you know, I have been looking for an IJ in SoCal. I'm going to try this again and see if it works.

#2 7 years ago

There was one listed on CL in OC and LA a week ago, but looks deleted now. There was also one listed in Phoenix, not sure if it was the same one or not. Great game, good luck in your search.

One more bump.

Maybe try something like the RGP website and type in the "search" area for "IJ". Then list the old threads by most recent date.

I found a machine that way by looking through threads over there that were a few months old where someone had a game for sale and it seemed the thread ended and it wasn't clear if the machine actually was sold. I just e-mailed people and asked "Hey, is the game you had for sale back a few months ago still for sale?". Had one guy tell me "Oh, yeah, I'd forgotten about that. It's still for sale." Then he quoted me a good price and I picked the game up the next weekend.

Might be worth a shot.

Not a bad idea at all. I just hope my JD lead goes nowhere.

Checked RGP. Nothing.

I live in AZ but did not see it. I am looking for a nice good condition TFTC game with LED's if you know of anyone in CA. Thanks.

Thanks for the offer, but I can't.

Family Ammusment Corp has one in their LA showroom. I think they are asking 5400. I played it and while it has been routed it played nice.

Can't what? I know it can be tough and you have to be patient, but something will come up if you track down all leads. I was almost going to contact you on one I recently picked up, but I have decided to tear it down and do a high end restore on it. I will still keep my eyes peeled for you though.

Should have been clearer, but I can't drive due to autism and can't go too far.

Got it. It helps to be clearer and now I understand where you're coming from. Still, I know an IJ will be in your near future and I will certainly be looking out for something in SoCal.

Thanks smassa, but I'm not paying shipping for a pin that's two hours away from me.

Hello?

"FREE LOCAL DELIVERY 75 MILES OF CORONA CALIFORNIA"

You are very close to that. He might be willing to drive the extra 10-15 miles for the sale. I would contact him to find out.

Yeah, I called them, and said they would do free shipping. Now, I just need my parents' approval.

Haven't a couple shown up recently and people called out your name in the thread suggesting you go for it? Being very selective or gone before you get there?

Was that IJ that was for $5900?

#32 6 years ago

No pics but said clean playfield and cab and working 100%.

#33 6 years ago

Surfside (and O-din maybe??) seem to be motivated to get some stuff sold right now. I think a bunch of their stuff is listed on CL and here right now. AFM, MM, BK2K, Gladiators, IJ, TSPP etc. I can't tell whose is whose or which is which, just seems like they might be working together. You might be able to get a good deal on his IJ if he needs to move some inventory.

Good luck!

I haven't talked to surfside much lately, but I always try to refer when somebody wants a game he has.
I like all my games, and am not looking to sell. Just wondering where to put Metallica and Joker Poker when they arrive.

#35 6 years ago

Tried calling him but was left with a message.

I sure hope you find your game kwi. You sure have been hunting for this sucker for a long time.

Bump this thread again. If I want IJ that badly, I would have to sell JP to fund it and I really don't know if I'm ready to sell it just yet.
