Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:
HUO TSPP with all the mods (color DMD on the way) purchased from bdaley6509 (great seller btw!) and a brand new IMVE w/ shaker and FF backbox flasher kit. A month ago I had no machines, luckily I am constrained by space and three is my max. Safely delivered by the always courteous and helpful Paul Drabik of Wanna Pinball. Can't recommend him enough if you're in the NYC metro area.

Quoted from BeaglePuss:
Just brought this guy home Purchased it from a Bowling Alley, and they loaded it up for me! That's something I can't say I'm too use to.
Check out that sweet button wear too!!!
So your the lucky one who got that off of craigslist! Congrats, that was one hell of a deal.
Post a separate thread and I'm sure like 10 people will have an answer for you. But I can't sat that I've ever had that issue. GL
Quoted from sd_jameson:
Ya know I wondered the same thing, didn't bother haggling and didn't bother asking any questions. I don't know if the guy was on his trip still or what but when I gave him the money he asked "is that how much I put it up for? Okay." He had put the ad up like 12 hours before. Then he laughed. Then I nervously laughed. The whole thing was pretty uncomfortable. I'd be happy to share my encounter with listening ears!
I had a very sketchy experience when I picked up my TSPP years ago. I'll spare you most of the creepy details but leave you with this. He had a parrot in his bedroom and the thing kept calling out his name... Rob ... Rob.... Rob... I literally burned my tires getting out of his driveway.
Quoted from V_piscopo:
Thanks! It's in pretty good shape.didnt need much work. Got a good deal on it too! Congrats on the house.hopefully it will have a game room?
Yeah we will have a decent game room big enough to fit a few pins and an arcade game. There have been some great deals going around lately such as that DE Star Trek for about 1k. Normally I have to travel out of state to get pins.
Quoted from Scoot:
I finally have a pin of my very own. Works great for not being serviced for 15 years. The only problem is I have no space for it. Who really needs a dining room table anyway...
You could easily fit another in there Congrats! The wife and I had 5 pins in our living room / kitchen setup in a tiny condo. we put the couch in storage lol. Welcome to the club and sweet looking game.
Just brought home a data east st. Guy even hand delivered it to me which was a first.
Quoted from Zavadoza:
PSA: "What machine DID you bring home today?" As in, show a pic of the game you BROUGHT home. Not show us your mug and part of a cabinet bringing a game home. That's just not as exciting to us as it is to you. This isn't directed at any recent post, but all posts that fit this description.
So please, take a pic before it gets in your vehicle or after so we can celebrate your new addition with you and get a look at the game. Thanks!
Is that a grand theft auto back glass I see? I assume its custom, but can you post more photos of that?
Quoted from Hdmike444:
A friend who does repairs got a call about some repairs the guy needed to sell some pins so he passed the number along thinking we could buy them as is do I worked a deal for them. Guy was happy and so were we
Awesome score! nice to know deals still exist! I feel like I haven't seen a deal in years.
Quoted from AntennaMan:
It is my birthday, so I had to buy something. It was only 5 minutes away, the closest before was 2 hours, so I had to buy it just on this basis. When I called the guy, he answered by saying, "Jeff?". He already knew me & I him. Played golf with him and his dad. Have got all my flooring from them. They're customers of mine. Never knew he was interested in pins. Funny thing, I had looked in at least a week for pins on CL and was only there looking for a cheap pellet stove to heat the new workshop, but eventually entered pinball. Did a triple take. Couldnt believe any machine was right here in town.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Congrats on the local score bud!! Pins in VT don't pop up often, let alone a stones throw away. Looks like a super fun game.
