I talked to a good many people from Pinside at Allentown but for those of you not at the show that were interested in the warehouse deal I had going on back around Christmas time I wanted to take a few minutes and update things.
I was FINALLY able to hook up with the sellers nephew on April 8th and a couple more times in April and I got all the machines moved out of the first storage unit. I also made a deal with another guy on a bunch of machines around the same time. In the past month I managed to pick up about 70 machines total and of the 70 about 50 were worth trying to save so I took those to the Allentown Show this weekend and sold about 30 of them.
Since April 8th I have driven nearly 9,000 miles picking up machines, bringing them home, then moving them to a couple storage units in Allentown getting ready for the show. Being very honest - at this point I really don't know if it was worth all the work but at least a bunch of machines are now in the hands of people who will do something with them instead of them just sitting in storage!
Once the dust settles I'll be listing what machines didn't sell at Allentown here on Pinside (in the Marketplace) but the next few weeks I'll be busy with other stuff so it will likely be sometime in July before I have much time for pinball stuff (or sales). I have not decided yet if I am going to purchase the remained of the stuff from the seller or if I'll just turn the information over to Lloyd (coinopwarehouse). The issue with the next unit is a bunch of 1970's Jukeboxes are in the way of getting to the pinball and arcade machines and I just don't know if I want to deal with those. So after I take care of some other stuff I need to decide how to proceed with the next unit & stuff at the guys house.
Anyway - hopefully this thread will be OK with the moderators. I don't want to cause a bunch of drama again but I know a few people are truly interested in hearing the rest of the story.
PS - Another FANTASTIC Pinfest thanks to Ivan & his crew!
