BLACK PYRAMID Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverJust got this at the Texas Pin Fest Swap Meet. I'm told it works, but have yet to stand it up to test it out. Soon...  
CIRCUS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayfield looks great - 2 wear spots near kickout hole. Backglass has some flaking, but overall is decent.
CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverReceived in trade for a project Capersville. Needs a serious cleaning - dirt daubers. Boards have been re-worked by a local collector that does repairs. Need to get some connectors and start putting it all back together.  
COUNT-DOWN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPurchased as a project. It was working for a few days, then went straight to tilt. Has a Ni-wumpf MPU. Re-pinnned edge connectors. The BG has some minor flaking, and the PF is pretty nice - the usual wear on the rocket near the kickout hole. Discovered a tilt switch was shorted. It also had a really awful power rectifier board (silicone was gone, had floating traces!) A pal sold me a new stock power board and it's been 100%. Plays great waxed, but I wish it had better illumination as the PF is kind of dim.  
DING DONG Williams (USA)Set up, needs some workMaybePlayfield in pretty decent shape, and it plays reliably most of the time, ball count sticks occasionally - should just need a new sleeve. The BG is cracked unfortunatley, but the colors are still so vivid. The cab will need a full repaint - it's flaking off. Very fun game. Update 2/18/2020 - I've gone over everything in this game, repainted the cab with a custom design, touched up and cleared the playfield. Will be reassembling in March, then dialing it in for play. Then I may pursue a replacement backglass.
DIXIELAND Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlays great. Very fast PF. My first pin.
FLYING CARPET Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeProject picked up from a pal at the 2015 Texas Pinball Festival. Pink was not manly enough for a previous owner, so the cab is currently white with eagle stickers plastered to the sides. Really dusty head, good BG, dirty playfield that should clean up ok. Can't wait to get the cab pink and the game playable. Update: This is a Sample game - lowest recorded serial number. The pressure is on to get this thing restored RIGHT. Update 9/13/17 - Cab sanded to wood, original colors applied, stencils done, ready to stand up on legs, reassemble, and get back in working order. Update 11/28/17: Playable machine! With help from Nic Schell and "Pinball" Bob Herbison, this game is up and running. Next up: paint touchup on the PF and leveling inserts, possibly a wipe-on poly to smooth out gameplay. Update 2/8/18 - This game is cleared, up and playing! Will be at the Texas Pin Fest in March.
GALAXY Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPurchased as a working project. Just finished installing a new power board and re-pinning the power connectors. The worst hacks have been repaired and the machine can actually be disassembled if it needs to be moved in the future.  
LECTRONAMO Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverProject in very nice shape. Picked this up as a project from the Texas Pin Fest 2014. Had the SB-100 serviced by Coin-Op Cauldron. Working, cleaned and it is fun!
MOULIN ROUGE Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPurchased from my local "dealer." A couple of broken inserts, needs a cab repaint, and I plan to get a new backglass at the Texas Pinball Festival coming up. Goal is to get this one restored by fall 2019 - a fun summer project.  
WILD WILD WEST Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPurchased working at the Texas Pinball Festival. BG very nice, PF nice, cab is fair. PF started losing paint so I halted play. I've done touch-up and polycrylic coating to seal it. It is now up and playing again as of NYE 2018.

pinball nameDBmanufactureris it for sale?notespictures
CAPERSVILLE Bally (USA)Sold Traded this machine to a friend more capable of bringing this machine back to proper condition. Hoping I get to play it at 100% someday. My first multiplayer, as well as my first multiball machine. This one will require some work, but most of the PF parts are running at this point.
FUN LAND Gottlieb (USA)Sold This was my first project table. It was filthy (see the photo of the dirt dauber nests.) I learned a lot about EM's working to get this one back in running order. I still had to hire a repair tech to fix some things. - Sold to a pin-head getting back into the hobby after a 20 year hiatus.
LITTLE CHIEF Williams (USA)Sold Plays very nice, good flow. A fun machine!
PARADISE Gottlieb (USA)Sold Project pin. The cab paint was flaking off, and is now disassembled, and in the process of a repaint. Mechanically, this machine is in pretty good shape - some minor adjustments remain. The playfield is very nice. The backglass has some flaking, scratches from the score reels, and the reds are faded. - Update: Sold to a new pin enthusiast. He's got some good plans in the works for this one! Hawaiian shirt print stencil for the cab! Will be excellent once complete.
