ABRA CA DABRA Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI picked up a nice condition Abra-Ca-Dabra that has been in a home for nearly 25 years with minimal play. The inserts are all loose and need to be reglued but are fairly flat and the playfield with need very minor touchups. Original backglass was flaking bad on the robe but I managed to get one of the repro backglasses. Usual three plastics are broke and I will be ordering a repro set of plastics when they are available. Very fun game to play. Just needs some cleaning and minor repairs. Long term keeper in my collection...  
AL'S GARAGE BAND GOES ON A WORLD TOUR Alvin G. (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first DMD pin. It has been repaired and cleaned up. It had some bugs to work out like a dead spinner motor and a couple dead or flaky light sockets and switches. It had a really weak right flipper that was also repaired. I acquired a NOS playfield as well for cheap.
BANK-A-BALL Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNice shape and working game. Does have small backglass lifting issues around one of the cue balls on the pool table.  
BIG GUNS Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverIn really good shape. Plays very well. Lots of fun to play. Lower two 7-segment displays have outgassed. Installed a replacement display module from Pinscore. Ramps are very yellowed and the right one has taken some air balls and is cracked. Looking for better condition ramps. Playfield is worn but I have a NOS playfield to swap with someday. Needs GI lighting connectors and headers rebuilt as the lights are very dim.  
BLONDIE Chicago Coin (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverMy first woodrail in my collection and my second EM. Really dirty and needs lots of cleaning. Some missing parts need to be replaced but it should clean up nice. Cabinet has been refinished with a dark shellac or stain. Will need to be redone. Backglass in decent shape with limited flaking and missing paint. Playfield has badly crackled and yellowed varnish that will need to be removed. Playfield paint under the varnish is nice.
BLUE RIBBON Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverProject game. Some backglass flaking around score displays.  
BONANZA Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNever  
CARD TRIX Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverNice game I picked up from a friend. Currently it needs a switch replaced that causes it to reset all lit cards on every ball. After playing it this way for a while, I like how it makes the game harder. I have still rolled it a few times.  
CENTAUR II Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverProject game I picked up recently. Lower 3 inches of backglass has lifted and is being held together by tape. Playfield is in decent shape with some wear but better than most. Spent nearly 100 hours repairing the boards and undoing the wiring hacks to get the game working again. Drop targets replaced. Looking for a NOS or repro playfield and backglass. I really enjoy this pin...
CITY SLICKER Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverLow production game. Only 300 made. Fun and hard to find game. The only video currently of this game being played was uploaded to Youtube by me. A wire got smashed while setting it up at the Texas Pinball Festival in 2012 and it damaged some boards. After some recent repair work it is half way working but still has some major issues to resolve.
CLASS OF 1812 Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
CLASSY BOWLER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI picked up this game from another collector. It is a very fun game to play. The inserts are cupped and someday will be leveled and the playfield will be touched up. Need to order repro plastic set as mine is missing all of the original plastics.  
COMBAT Zaccaria (Italy)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverVery nice shape game. Will setup soon and start working on getting it running again.
COMET Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPicked this game up recently from an old arcade operator warehouse. Major water damage to the cabinet. Backglass is decent with a pair of scratches across the middle. Playfield is super dirty and worn where the mylar was not covering. Got it cheap and figured it would be a parts donor until I managed to get it working after buying it before I got it out of the warehouse. Looking for a suitable replacement cabinet and hope to keep this game together and not part out.  
CONTEST Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverLooking for good clean scans of the plastics since mine are toast. Currently having an issue where player 3 and 4 do not receive the reset pulses on the score reels. Still working on troubleshooting that issue. Game plays well otherwise. Some playfield wear that I hope to someday get touched up. Bought at a pinball show after spending about two hours hooked on playing it during the weekend. Lots of nudging needed to keep the ball in play... Fun game.  
DIAMOND LADY Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverRepair and restoration in progress. Need to flatten plastics and reassemble. Old MPU had bad acid damage, replaced with NOS MPU. Need to finish putting it back together now. Minor board issue discovered the other day that should be an easy fix. Hope to finally get this game working soon.
ESCAPE FROM THE LOST WORLD Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGood backglass, some wear on playfield. Has the silkscreened playfield glass. Found replacement ramps that were not cracked up as bad as the originals. Fixed GI issues and a few other minor issues found when shopping it out. Fun game that is not very common. Took some searching but I finally found the correct extra long rear legs as it came with the standard 28-1/2" legs on both the front and back. Currently the audio pot is acting flaky and the left ramp is warped a little causing the ball to get stuck at the top of the ramp where it splits if it is moving too slow.  
FLYING CARPET Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverGood backglass, slightly worn playfield, cabinet repainted. Has been sitting for years in a house. Needs some work and is totally full of dust... Rubber rings are falling apart and it does not appear to have been cleaned or waxed in 20+ years. Will take some work to bring back to working shape and will probably repaint the cabinet eventually...
HEARTS SPADES Allied (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverAnother cocktail pinball machine. I got it for a good price. It needs lots of work to restore but should clean up nice. It is on the list of pins to repair/restore but will be a while. Will use some parts from water damaged Take Five to fix this one as well.
HI-SCORE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverI won this game in a raffle drawing. Was working before I brought it home but now it is acting up and not wanting to work right. Needs a little TLC but will be a nice game to play when I get it working properly again.  
HI-SCORE POOL Chicago Coin (USA)Set up, plays!NeverVery unusual and fun game. The 8-ball was melted but I found a NOS replacement. Converted the game over to LED's everywhere except the flashers behind the title on the backglass. Even replaced the 120v light bulbs under the apron with 120v fronted white LED ceiling fan bulbs. Game looks awesome and is a ton of fun to play as a two player where you can steal each other's racks.  
HOKUS POKUS Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverNeeds some minor repairs to be playable again. Nice backglass. Some paint pen touchups on playfield. Will eventually be next to my Theater of Magic.  
JACK IN THE BOX Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWorking but with a few minor issues. Hope to work on it this weekend.  
JET SPIN Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNever  
JOUST Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverCurrently under repair. Nice condition playfield and backglass. Found several cracked and broken actuator plates in the trip reset bank. I picked up some replacements that should work once I can pull the game apart again.  
LITTLE JOE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWas my first EM game. Needs some paint touch up but is otherwise in decent shape. Backglass is faded and has some flaking. Fun game to play.
MATA HARI Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHad been in storage for a while before I got it. Tore it apart and rebuilt it in a week and got it working again. New universal Bally MPU replaced the battery acid damaged MPU board. Rebuilt the power supply board and replaced headers and pins. Few other minor fixes needed. Playfield is pretty good but does have some spots that could use a little touch up paint. Backglass only has a few scratches and is in pretty good shape. Will probably pick up a CPR repro playfield and plastics soon to install someday.
MIBS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNever  
PINBALL Stern (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverEM version.  
RANCHO Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverOne of the metal cabinet versions. Backglass and playfield in nice shape. Some cupping of the inserts but not too bad. It is currently under repair while I try to get it ready to take to the Houston Arcade Expo in November.  
SEA BELLES Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverProject game...  
SEVEN UP Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPicked up this project from a friend. The playfield is very badly worn and in rough shape. He also happened to have a much better but dirty playfield that was missing some of the assemblies that I will be cleaning up and installing in the game.  
SILVERBALL MANIA Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe machine that started my collection. Playfield showing it's age but not too bad where the mylar is covering. Backglass is starting to have major issues though. I picked up a reproduction playfield, plastics and backglass from CPR. Will find a cheap rough game to restore and sell my original after the swap is complete.
SLICK CHICK Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverProject game I just bought. Playfield has minor planking and wear but is very dirty. Cabinet artwork is in rough shape and will need to be redone. Water damage to the head causing major wood delamination. Will locate a suitable replacement head shell to use in the restore. Backglass is in nice shape with minimal flaking. Will probably look for a repro backglass that is in perfect shape as I plan to restore this game to very nice shape.  
SPACE INVADERS Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverProject game I picked up from a friend. Have not drilled the lock out yet on the head. No idea of the condition of the boards or working status of the game. Playfield is much nicer than the one I used to own. Minimal wear around some inserts that should be able to be touched up. Cabinet artwork a little rough and may be redone someday.  
SPACE ODYSSEY Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverCurrently it is working but has developed a issue where the kickers fire several times after the ball is launched. Still need to track down the souce of this issue. Some playfield paint loss and previous touchups. Will someday do some playfield toucheds. Backglass in good shape. One broken plastic on upper left corner. Was going to buy a repro plastics set from CPR but I found the plastic I needed off a donor playfield.
SPIN-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNice condition working game I bought from a friend. Lots of fun to play.  
SPIN-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybeProject game. Playfield has planking issues. Plastics and backglass are nice. Only a small dime size defect in the backglass artwork and a few pinholes showing. Cabinet is decent for it's age. Will try to get running and sell or trade at some point.
STAR GAZER Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy holy grail of pinball. It took me five years of searching but I finally found one for a reasonable price. It is not for sale. It is mostly working but does have a rough playfield and a nice backglass. I have already picked up repro plastics and am on the pre-order group for the repro playfields when they are available. Lots of wiring hacks and common repairs needed to bulletproof the game. I fell in love with this pin the first time I played it five years ago and really enjoy the flow and loopy shots.  
STARS Exhibit (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPre-flipper woodrail. Over 70 years old. Needs all parts on top of playfield replaced. All bumpers are either broken, missing or beyond hope of repair. May have to retrofit with more modern replacement parts to get it working. Cabinet had beem painted orange. Once working, I will strip and repaint the cabinet as close as I can to factory colors and pattern. Backglass has some fading and flaking. Not bad considering it was built before WW2.  
STRANGE SCIENCE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayfield and backglass is very good shape. Bought it from a guy that said it had quit working on him before he put it into storage. After checking it all out, I found and replaced a bad coil, diode, transistor, and some fuses. Working pretty good now. Was at the 2010, 2011, 2012 Texas Pinball Festival. In 2012 it took home the 2nd place Best Original ribbon. My game was used by Cointaker to work out the LED kit for Strange Science. I ordered a blue neon replacement for the topper to switch out someday. The red still works and will be carefully removed and stored as a spare. I plan to LED out the game, install blue LED score displays and have the playfield touched up in a few places and clear coated as the inserts are starting to ghost on the blue ink.
SUPERSONIC Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThe cabinet could use some touch up paint. The playfield is badly worn but I found a good condition playfield to do a playfield swap with once it is touched up and clear coated. Good backglass with small missing spot where lock bar hits glass. Was playable but had battery acid damge on MPU and burnt power headers make it very flakey until that is fixed. Played okay but looked rough before it went into storage.
SURFER Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverProject game I bought from a friend. The playfield, plastics and backglass are in very nice shape. Cabinet was repainted in a funny color scheme. Some dry rot and flaking on the bottom edge of the cabinet, mainly on the right side. Currently the game needs every moving assembly serviced as someone greased every coil and assembly and it has turned to gunk. May have found a lower cabinet body from a parts game I picked up that does not have the delamination or dry rot issues.  
TAKE FIVE Allied (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverCurrently being restored. Using parts from water damaged Take Five to make one working machine. I got it cheap. Had been in storage for years. Lots of corrosion and white mold from damp storage. Looking pretty good now. Had the wrong plastics on it. Roy Clark and Take Five have the same layout but different artwork. Using plastics from water damaged Take Five that is correct.
TARGET ALPHA Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNever  
THEATRE OF MAGIC Midway (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI thought I would never be able to afford a TOM, but I found one for a good price through a local operator who was downsizing his warehouse and have a price I couldn't pass up. The cabinet is in really nice shape with a few minor dings and dents in the artwork. Playfield is very nice but has some ghosting on the inserts above the flippers along with 2-3 lenses that need to be reset flush with the playfield. They have a corner or two sticking up... Lots of busted plastics and dirt from being a route game for 10 years. DMD showing burn in the corners. The trunk gearbox needs to be disassembled, cleaned and relubricated and the motor replaced as the game keeps having trunk errors when turning or hit. Already replaced the busted opto interrupter disc with a metal one and installed new truck opto board. Will be ordering new ramps, plastics, plastic protectors, and stickers. I am also planning on doing a full LED conversion and putting the tiger saw mod and top mirror replacement mods on the game. When I get finished with it, I will have a really nice TOM for less than normal going prices. Recently had a tech come over and spend two hours fixing a bunch of issues with the game.  
TIME WARP Williams (USA)In storage, workingNever  
TOP CARD Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverSame Top Card that I had sold a while back. Regretted selling it and had the chance to buy it back.  
TOP TEN Chicago Coin (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPicked this up from a friend. Was mostly working but was very ugly. Playfield is really ugly since someone tried their hand at touching it up with a small brush and couldn't paint within the lines, color match or have an even color where they painted. Cabinet has also been repainted black on the front and one side and has original artwork on the other side. Backglass is okay. Picked up a much nicer playfield at the TPF and will be swapping it out later this year. Eventually it will probably be repainted.  
TORPEDO ALLEY Data East (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverNon-working project machine. Playfield has some wear but nothing too major. Some broken plastics and/or yellowed plastics. Ordered replacement center island plastic and decals for the pop bumpers, drop targets and a few other places. Had a local tech rework the boards and need to reinstall them still. Once I have the game booting I will finish putting the playfield back together as I want to make sure all the LEDs I am installing work properly under all the layers of stuff I had to remove before covering it all back up. When I got the game nearly every light was burned out or silvered badly and the game was very dirty.  
X'S AND O'S Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBought it as a non-working project. I completely rebuilt all 3 flippers with all new parts. It had been sitting for 4 years before I got it since the upper flipper coil had failed and the repair guy made a mess of the lower left and upper right flippers and then wanted more money than the previous owner wished to pay and everything was left in pieces in the game or not wired up. Playfield has some wear around the playfield inserts and in both top ball loops. Fun pin to play with cool sounds. Was at the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Texas Pinball Festival. Good backglass. Needs a few minor repairs after 1500 plays at the TPF in 3 years but has been a reliable pin for me.
