I picked this up on Saturday.
Quoted from merccat:
Not sure if it counts but bought a parts machine I will be salvaging for an educational/student project.
Too bad too cuz it is a fun game but shes too far gone.
Awesome pick up! Did you know someone selling because I didn't see it on CL. My son was trying to talk me into buy the one for sale at PAGG. Hope your project works out.
Quoted from merccat:
This afternoon I'll actually open the game up and see how bad it actually is. I'm certainly not hopeful that it would be restorable.
They are ALL restorable, just depends on if you want to do the work and spend the money...I restored one that was at curbside pickup. Sounds like a cool project you are doing. Let me know if I can help in anyway.
Brought home an Aerosmith Pro last night and added it to the line up. Only 146 total plays....Im so stoked
Picked this one up yesterday. Needs some work and a good cleaning. But it's in good shape.
I drove 2 hours from my home to pick these up from a recycler that opened at 8am. A Marilyn Taxi and El Dorado City of Gold. Both missing back glass but both are complete. The Taxi actually works and doesn't appear to have any board damage. Both will clean up really nice and are extremely dirty. But what makes this so sweet is that I paid the asking price of $50 for both games. Can't wait to start on these projects.

^ Holy crap!
Quoted from RWH:
Wow is all I can say, enjoy!!
Quoted from PoBoyPinball:
Glad to see your doing you’re part to help the environment, recycling recyclables.
What a deal.
I couldn't give them my money any faster. I even gave the guy a $10 tip for helping me load them up. I felt like I was stealing them. Almost pealed out getting out of there!
Got this from my buddy who was the second owner. He only had it for a week and a half then decided to get something different. The game only had 900ish plays on it.
Donkey Kong! Such an awesome game and a must for a collector. I've gone through some arcades, and it's the only one that I won't let go.
