First pick up in the new EV…. Two player Gottlieb fits in a VW ID.4, but no way you’d fit a dolly in.

(Yes, I was safely in park when I took the photo…. Safety first!)

Ah, very little sleep the last 24 hours, I'm going to fall down and sleep a lot now.

Did you get all of them from the same person? Buy out someone's collection?
It's hard to believe a large collection can be bought today at any good prices due to the high costs of what people want for their machines today. Hopefully you scored or at least it appears so.

#24675 63 days ago

Looks like EM's are a popular choice.

The price was fair as he doesn't have to deal with a bunch of individuals. I'm hoping to move the ones I'm uninterested in for below market so I get my garage bay back sooner rather than later.

The prime reason for buying a lot of games was so my wife could have Roller Coaster Tycoone which is the only solid state she has shown any interest in.

Well I had to top my last 6 pin haul, double seemed like a good number.

I think I can strike "ridiculous solid state lot buy" off my bucket list finally.

Not sure if I'm buying this myself (I want to, lol) or just shopping it and helping a friend sell it but this showed up yesterday. Looks like a really good candidate for a restoration!

Picked this up from a very nice couple who had it in their house since the 1980s. They were very concerned when I didn’t show up with a pickup or a trailer. Yep, the Explorer works just fine.

Brought home Earthshaker today to complete the disaster set! It’s been on my wishlist for 2 years but had never found one in a condition/price/distance that matched up for me. This one was about an hour and a half away, has amazing color on the cab, playfield looks good, AND it has the sinking building. No hesitation on buying it!

Second pin, first used. 6 hour round trip to get it. Had to rush home to put kids to bed but I can't wait to mess with it tomorrow!

Wow.. Amazing condition from the look of it as well! Congratulations!

Last time I checked the ramps on this one are unobtanium, so treat them as such!

And they have arrived.
It’ll be a good winter tweaking and spicing up these iconic gems.

Didn't really expect to be posting in this thread today! Some days, you do really get lucky in this hobby.

After restoring several SS pins over the last few years, I've been thinking for the last few months that I'd like to dive in and learn EM. Then last night, my CL filter picked up a "pinball" hit for an estate sale set for Friday morning, about 20 miles from me. In the CL pictures, amongst the usual estate sale fodder, sat an EM Night Rider in a dark corner of the basement. I emailed the guy last night asking how much, is it working, and could I possibly come check it out Thursday before the estate sale. Much to my surprise, he answered me within 30 minutes with the asking price and a time Thursday to come by, check it out, and potentially buy it before anyone showed up the next day. He just wanted this pin gone. It's not working - it powers on with GI lit but nothing else happening.

Got there this morning and the guy was nice as can be. His dad passed away a couple of years ago and they're finally getting around to clearing out his house. This was the family pin and it sat in the same spot in that basement for more than 22 years but hasn't worked in the last 10.

A few hundred dollars later, I was loading it up in my truck. He had the key for the coin door but not the backbox, so I had to drill that out that lock to break down the backbox for transport.

Very pleased with my find - the machine is complete. The playfield is in pretty nice shape and so are the plastics, the cab and backbox innards look like a museum, and at first glance all of the labels and cards for the innards look in place and intact. The backglass is nearly perfect and that's a good thing - I'm pretty sure EM versions of the Night Rider backglass are hard to find.

This'll stay broken down in my garage for a couple of months while I finish the restoration on my Black Knight. I'm all set with my winter project now! Time to read up on EM troubleshooting, triage, and maintenance basics now....

Wow great pick up mate - can’t believe how clean and shiny the coils & switches in the backbox are … hard to believe that game is 40+ years old

Great grab! You’ll have that up and running in no time. EM repair just requires patience and persistence, with a good eye, they’re not too hard once you figure out what does what.
When you get them right, they run like a Swiss watch!
