    This SUUUUCKS. Had some unexpected medical stuff come up with the kids, tore through savings and I'm still short.

    Goodbye STTNG, I barely knew ya.

    I could cry

    #2 8 years ago

    Sorry to hear that brother. Hope everything is ok with your family, way more important than a pinball machine.

    Best, Ryan

    #4 8 years ago

    Thanks. Just don't want to ruin my credit

    #5 8 years ago

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully you'll get another one someday soon.

    #6 8 years ago

    Hey Johnny, I am sorry somewhat about your pin, I am quite sorry to hear about the kids, I hope it all turns out OK for you.

    #7 8 years ago

    hope it gets better man, medical cost are outta control nowadays

    #8 8 years ago

    Thanks Guys. The boys are fine, just some things that had to be addressed.

    I will be able to grab another pin in a month or so. But it probably won't be in the same league as STTNG

    Thanks Guys. The boys are fine,

    That is good. That is important. You never know about the next machine, you might actually find one you like better.

    #10 8 years ago

    There are more important things than pinball (not many) but way to take care of your family brother.

    Quoted from Johnny:

    probably won't be in the same league as STTNG

    If you want any advice on great "bang for buck" machines, I have a lot of suggestions. Best of luck with everything Johnny.

    So when do people get to start complaining about the price?

    #12 8 years ago

    I'm very sorry to hear that.

    #13 8 years ago

    Sorry to hear.

    #14 8 years ago

    Sorry to hear that man. I hope everything works out in the end!

    Quoted from JWS64:

    Welp, was just offered 2500. I hope that's a good price to get for it

    #16 8 years ago

    Bummer man - hope things work out for you

    #17 8 years ago

    It's life, I guess.

    Bad times make the good times sweeter.

    Quoted from Johnny:

    I think that is a fair offer, but would not be surprised if someone (possibly from pinside) would offer closer to 3K.

    #19 8 years ago
    Quoted from mykquillion:

    I wouldn't offer on Pinside. It's a re import, and not perfect.

    And God bless my wife. She is telling me not to sell it. She doesn't play but she's all "but you love that thing. I can make this work, give me a couple days to figure this out."

    17 years, and she still surprises me.

    Quoted from Johnny:

    That's up to you and what you think. I think it's a fair price.

    You'll be back in the owner category soon.

    Sorry to hear about your kids. I've got one too, and I'd sale whatever I had to if it meant she had whatever she needed in an emergency. You're a good dad, and parent for doing what you have to.

    I've followed your posts since the first day you got your STTNG. And I look forward to seeing
    your next purchase.

    #21 8 years ago

    2,500 is an ok price. another pin will come down the pipe when you have the cash and it will be fun too. until you can get another pin i suggest you get pinball's greatest hits the William's collection for what ever game system you might have. i have it on the wii. it will keep the pin monkey fed until you get another pin. until then stay frosty and love your family. my family will keep a good thought for you all.

    Wish you and your family the best. I'm sure everything will work itself out and you'll be back in the pin owner crowd in no time. Although... It sounds like your wife is going to do her best to make sure you keep that STTNG!

    #23 8 years ago

    Thanks again guys.

    MrGone, I have PHOF of 360, and while it's great, it ain't the same!

    #25 8 years ago

    Maybe give your wife the couple days she asked for before selling. You can't buy another one easily for 2500! that's pretty noble of her!

    #26 8 years ago

    As much as we sometimes like to fool ourselves into thinking that life is all about pinball, the fact of the matter is that it's just a means of recreation. When stuff that truly matters gets in the way of our hobby, it helps us put things into perspective. The important thing is that you and your family are OK.

    #27 8 years ago

    Maybe you can pawn it instead of sell it. That way you can get it back in a few months.

    Quoted from SealClubber:

    Hey, that's an idea! Since you said you can probably get one next month anyway!

    #29 8 years ago

    I am very sorry to hear about this and i hope all is well for you and
    remember that health is the most important thing in the world.
    I really hate to see you let your machine go i know you like it alot.
    Tell you what i am planning on adding a JD pin to my collection
    here hopefully soon.The machine is not to far from me but the
    only problem i have is i have no way of picking it up.I am trying
    to get in touch with a friend of mine who has a pickup truck and
    have him pick it up for me but i still have'nt heard from him but
    i am trying my best to get JD.Hopefully if i do get JD,You can
    have my Cyclone pin if you want i know its nowhere near STTNG but
    its fully working,really nice shape,clean and fun to play and i'm sure
    you and the kids would really like it.God Bless,Mike

    #30 8 years ago

    Pinmike. You are a god.

    #31 8 years ago

    Cyclone is a blast. Totally worth the offer if you guys can make it happen.

    Good luck. I hope all works out for you. I really believe things will work out in the end, just keep the faith.

    There are no words...

    #38 8 years ago

    ITS YOURS JOHNNY!!!

    #39 8 years ago

    I have a lump in my throat. Wow. Your kindness is beyond words

    #40 8 years ago

    Wow is right. pinmike, you're a class act. Hope all turns out well Johnny.

    #42 8 years ago

    Alright Pinmike,Johnny best to you and your family.

    #43 8 years ago

    This is truely amazing and now i really believe in miracles.Mike is a wonderful guy and the best in my book i am very proud meeting him and i will never forget the help he gave me with my game and i am very lucky to have him as a friend.This is really awesome to see and brings some tears to my eyes.

    Quoted from SealClubber:

    That's a good idea. Ever think about putting it to work for you? Find a local business that has tons off foot traffic and split the take with the business. Takes longer to make money but it's still yours and can be a draw for the business. Just a thought off the top of my head...good luck to you and yours.

    Quoted from FlipperMagician:

    Wow is right. pinmike, you're a class act.

    2nded.

    #45 8 years ago

    I hope things are alright Johnny, I'm sorry to hear about this, and I'm hoping for the best for you and the family.

    Very generous offer Pinmike, you're a class act indeed.

    Cyclone is an awesome game. I was playing my friend's a couple of days ago. It's my favorite of the three Williams amusement park themed games. I've never been able to max out the scoring on the Cyclone ramp, but I'll keep trying.

    #46 8 years ago

    The trek to Pinmike's begins early in the morning. Can't wait to meet you Mike. Just wanted to thank you publicly again.

    #47 8 years ago

    ummm...can I have the spidey right next to it? Mike, adding nothing to what has been posted before in this thread....incredible!

    #48 8 years ago

    I don't think I have ever posted in this forum before (just trolled so far) but, this is a worthy post. Pinmike, my hats off to you brother. You have a big heart to help a fellow pinballer in need. The world needs more Pinmike's in it.

    Quoted from bigdaddy07:

    I second that

    #50 8 years ago

    All I can say is wow to both Johnny and Mike. I know it has been said many times already but I hope all is well Johnny with your family. Mike words can't say what a selfless act you have done and a class guy you are!
