I guess I am spoiled with the York and allentown shows only 1 hr away from me. I have played some great games at shows I other wise would have never had the chance to play.

the abra ca dabra cabinet has a fiber board back panel. It isn't uncommon for it to be busted and misssing chunks and check under the cabinet for holes
EM machines once cleaned and adjusted run without much fuss just play them

I have always been partial to this backglass

The one I picked up has a great BG only one small spot of paint missing, the playfield is great the back panel needs to be replaced. I will replace it once it gets warmer
I think I paid 225 or their about

Im SE Pa and if you wait you can find deals but they are far a few between last few years a lot of people snag them just to flip or offer more than asking price to start the seller to ask for bids. I just walk. I only pay what I feel its worth, I have no problem paying a fair price but a good deal pops up from time to time. It helps if the machine doesn't work, EM if complete and unhacked CAN be fixed with little or no cost.
this machine has a broke bottom edge on the fiber board back opanel and the cabinet has some bumps and dings but the art is bright. I got it working 100% and folded it up due to lack of room. To many projects and not enough room.

Volley is a great player, it isn't a special fest though. Once you light the special and hit it you have to start over with the drops again to light again. unlike say 2001 once you light the special you can bang away the specials
there are only a few wedgeheads that are dogs. the others are either great or good, so you really can't go wrong IMO
