Saved this from certain death this morning...if the guy didn't sell it by the end of the weekend, he was going to sell it to another guy that wanted to part it out. BG has some minor flaking, but the PF is more than decent and all of the mechs and brackets underneath the PF look like they're brand new. Shiny. Another one saved from the graveyard.

Great Save I have Fire Queen and play it every day.

Colsond, can't believe how long it was on Craig's list. It was price to sell. Nice acquisition to your collection. If it was a Fire Queen it would be in my barn.

Awesome weekend of pin rescuing!
Friday night we did some warehouse spelunking and brought home a Scared Stiff. She needs some love but will be a great starting point for a high-end-restore project, since the cabinet art is really good and playfield is decent minus the usual stuff around the 'Terrifying' insert.

Then, we headed 2 hours west to another state to rescue a Twilight Zone from a Picker's-style barn for a friend.
She was dirty and had some dumb wiring hacks but will clean up and make a great add to his collection!

Love Pin-finding weekends. The find is almost as exhilarating as GC.

^^ Very jealous, especially of the Scared Stiff! I'm still jealous that you guys are able to find these barn finds and they are not some water-logged EM or home version

Thanks, totally bang for buck! I usually shop them instantly, like I did with Mav. - Get pin, drive to PBL to see Terry, spend the next 20hrs shopping.., enjoy..

Wish I could find deals on pins like TZ above.. But around here they cost about a kidney to a kidney n a half..

What vehicle did you use? System 3's won't fit in my Equinox. It looks like yours was pretty darn close!

Plus I disrupt their days work and jam numerous games of pin! Last time I think I caused a total stoppage, like 10 employees were playing pin after me and Terry had fired up his minty Baywatch.. Fun stuff!

Well remember...you can survive just fine with one kidney! LOL. And yes, I dream of the day I find either a SS or TZ in a barn. I'd have a better chance of finding a Fathom for $100.

Quoted from Bbismuth:

I have a GMC Terrain. It actually didn't fit...had to go the old straps, bungees and hope for the best route. One thing I hate about most Gottlieb DMD's. They made the cabinets about 3-4 inches deeper than Williams/Bally games (well just about any other games), and for no apparent reason.

The only two games I've picked up since I bought the Terrain last year that wouldn't fit comfortably...Freddy and Cue Ball Wizard. Damn you Gottlieb!!! I fit my BF (widebody/large game) no problem, but not a CBW? Go figure. I miss my GMC Envoy Denali that I traded in...fit two games comfortably no problem.

Luckily for Freddy (as well as my nerves and well-being), I only had to drive a whole 7.3 miles home with it strapped. I think that is the closest I've driven to get a pin in two years.

Maybe compared to some. But I have 19 machines and only room for 12. They are stacking up in the basement and now the garage. I send out machines to my repair tech for remote storage.

I was supposed to refinish the basement but now have too many machines to make that possible. My storage units are full of cars and parts.

I would vote for the presidential candidate that could solve this problem!

After a long 2 year search I finally found a beautifully restored Flash Gordon. There's no better feeling when you finally obtain your #1 grail pin, and the condition & gameplay is far beyond your expectations

Emperor Ming Awaits!

Thanks! I feel very fortunate. The playfield was restored by HSA and the previous owner was a great guy.

This Spirit happen to be part of the Gottlieb test program where it went out to an operator with specific documentation, including technical and earnings test reports ... and I have all the docs! The paper trail for this game is just fantastic to thumb through.

Simpsons Pinball Party supplied by Pinball Heaven in the UK

13 Years old and may as well have been NIB, did the previous owner ever bother to play it?

That is very cool. To be able to see the history and locations the game has seen is something you often don't have a chance to do...at least not in any great detail. I have a Gottlieb Spider-Man that has a "State of Arkansas Amusement Machine / Gambling Permit" bolted to the front of it. People always tell me to remove it, but I don't think I will. I think it's cool...shows where the game has been (it's now far away in PA) and gives it character. I'm not one that thinks it's cool or attractive leaving "Vince was here '85" scraped down the side of one of my games, but a permit gambling placard as small as this one? I think that stays.
