Quoted from Jesterfunhouse:
Does anyone get this recently when clicking on pinball machines in this area from Craigslist?
For some reason you can only search locally. To see Pittsburgh area listings. ..I had to choose that as my local region..etc.
It's very annoying. I contacted them also.
Quoted from JOESCHALL:
I have no interest in or knowledge of the seller, but here is a CL ad for an F-14 in Altoona, PA for $900.
Don't bother...I saw the machine. It's not the one in the pic. He pulled a pic off the Internet.
It has no beacons or parts for the beacons, pop bumper is out; most likely a transistor, no visible switch issue. It's very dirty, dinged up cabinet, and it froze up on me twice while playing. Incandescent bulbs with many out. I'd go $500 max on it, that's even questionable.
Quoted from Colsond3:
Yanked pics from the web in an ad that isn't the game he has...I hate that.
I'm so glad I was only 15 min away. That would have been even more disappointing. I told him no pic would be better than a ripped pic of a very nice F 14.
He was asking 1100, just dropped to 900. Wouldn't go lower for me. Maybe when he can't sell, he'll change his mind.
Quoted from twoplays25c:
FYI, Pinhead Amusements in Bedford, PA (just off PA TPK and I-70), had one not long ago.
May want to try them, they do have a FB page.
I've played that Big Guns. Make sure they service it if you are interesred in buying. Has some issues. Kickback was not working, Slings are not operating, and there's an issue with multiball locks. It needs serviced.
Have a South Park w color DMD, full led package, rebuilt pops, nvram...and more. See my ad in the marketplace
Listed my Junk Yard for trade. Only had it a short time...but just not feeling it. Nice Example
Looking for a DE Secret Service I can fix up for for a friend. Project or players machine preferred but will consider anything.
I have my Tee'd Off up for sale or trade. I'd prefer a trade...even unfinished projects might interest me.
Dropped my Tee'd Off to 1500 cash if someone can pick it up Tues 8/22. Only applies to this day....hurry and grab it.
Just listed a working Mata Hari project and a 412 game Multicade upright if anyone is interested
Just added a Gottlieb Gladiators to the market.
1700 or trade + $$ for a wishlist game (project or working)

Feel free to propose any offers.
Still interested in a trade for my Monopoly.
WCS94, JP, TFTC are top choices.
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
Nice! That’s an awesome idea. I need somebody like that I can offload one my games to periodically! Haha
I have a similar situation with a local pinhead where I do the repairs, shop jobs and in return I get to play a machine I normally wouldn't buy or couldn't afford. It's a win win for both parties.
I wouldn't say that's completely out of line. It better be nice! There was one on pinside here for $3k a few months ago. Went sale pending in less than 24hrs. If you have an unfaded cab, sinking building mod, new ramps etc, they'll sell.
I agree. It's a great starter pin that requires multiple shots around the playfield. Simple to learn, hard to "mix-master"
Looking for a decent late model data east or similar side rail that covers the glass channel. (No lollipop aroind the flipper buttons) I believe they are identical side to side on later games.
Scoping a used one before I buy new
