FATHOM Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverClean original, wear on cabinet and playfield very rough. I have new repro p/f, plastics, bg... awaiting restoration.  
GULFSTREAM Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBeautiful backglass and playfield; minor touchups underneath cleared surface. All mechanics completely gone over; all stepper units torn apart, cleaned, relubed where needed. Plays fast and brutal, just like I like them. This was my first pin purchase back in 1986. It's the only game I still have from this period... will always be a permanent force in my collection.  
HIT 'N' RUN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverRestoration complete. It was a nightmare; first shown in 2014 York... looking to show this again at an upcoming show... has held up really well.
JUMPING JACK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNice game!  
JUNGLE QUEEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayfield touched up and Varathane-clearcoated. Looks great, and runs flawlessly. This game is very underrated in my opinion. It's a winner.  
KING PIN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBeautiful example of this game restored by Mark Folsom. Playfield touched up/clearcoated; beautiful original cabinet. Coin Door and legs very nice. Shay backglass, not the greatest as it has backlit areas on most of the ball in play and match numbers that isn't properly aligned and is too large. kept the original backglass - extremely minor fading in a few spots.  
KISS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeVery nice restored game; have IPB p/f; awaiting playfield swap.  
MATA HARI EM Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBest in Show award winner - York White Rose Show October/2019. Best one out there? Possibly!!! Beautiful restored game... cabinet prepped and painted with Molotow/Pinball Pimp stencils. Chris Munson side rails, Reese custom wood rails, GateCrasher coin door trim. Shay backglass. Mech panel cleaned and cleared. Back box and mech panel - all components cleaned/polished, every motor and switch contact hit with the dremmel and adjusted. Stepper units rebuilt to as-new spec. All score reels cleaned, adjusted, rebuilt, wiper units serviced. All coil sleeves replaced. Flipper units serviced, bats and coil stops replaced. Playfield is a re-screened and clear-coated original play-field, bought from Gene Cunningham (Illinois Pinball) in 2006; this acquired playfield was used by CPR from a donor to test their screening process prior to releasing their MH reproductions. Play field swap is complete. Replaced drop targets with new, updated images and laminated to protect. All new pop bumper components; replaced all lamp sockets in head and PF; Coin door completely disassembled, all metal cleaned and polished, skin re-grained; new Cliffy coin return chute. NOS coin inserts added, along with a new Bally logo center bezel cover. New legs from Pinball life and ceramic sliders. Plays out of the box!
OLD CHICAGO Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverNice game needs shop job and cab repaint.  
POKER FACE Keeney (USA)Set up, needs some workMaybeThis game has been mechanically gone through; lots of busted up coils and broken mechs...and here are some not so good reasons to own this pin: * Impulse flipper design - power coil and fallout relay that precludes catching the ball with the flips. * Poorly designed reset circuit... unless really dialed in, returning all reels to zero can be problematic. * No Score Reel or kicker EOS switches; everything must be dialed in to prevent buzzing. * No match feature! Yeah, not so great. * Pop bumper plunger brackets are poorly designed; thin and busted into several pieces. * Poorly designed ball kicker units; too much pressure on thin areas of the unit; this one welded at least once prior to my purchase. * Coil bobbins are cheap and tend to fall apart; coil paper crumbles in your hand. * Score reels are plastic, not metal, and have three very thin spokes that are prone to cracking. * Coil plungers are inferior to other manufacturers; had to aggressively sand many of them to get them smooth. * Wimpy knocker coil - barely audible. * No metal blade "backstop" behind stationary targets; ball can get stuck underneath light shields with a solid/hard hit. * Very little space between back of backglass and light board... must use 51s to avoid backglass burn from heat.
QUICK DRAW Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverCabinet nice but bottom panel needs to go. Decent BG, PF is sweet underneath a distributor-installed mylar sheet; reimport from Germany we believe, although there is no Mondial front bezel. In line for restoration.  
ROYAL FLUSH Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExtremely nice example - from Dave Metrando of NY; Great B/G, very nice non-molested p/f and cabinet; strong throughout, plays like new.  
TARGET ALPHA Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPresumably a HUO game; nothing to prove it, however, only 3900 plays when bought from a pinball collector getting out of the hobby and retiring to Florida. Minor touchup to one badly scratched area of the playfield near the right drop target bank and clearcoat completed in August of 2014. Plays like a charm. Red dot/orange dot coils? NO!  
TEAM ONE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeSuper clean example; lovely playfield, coin door; cabinet has typical scuffs and scratches. Backglass has typical ink loss in all of the red inked areas. Plays perfect! Currently performing a mod that should have been included, since it's consistent with the playfield rules stating "WOW or 5000 when lit", associated with hitting a lit drop target - 5000 points are one WOW when lit for special. What happens is that when you've maxed out your WOWs at 5, hitting the next DT when lit for special awards no points... hey why not??? So with this mod, hitting a lit DT when WOWS are at max, will award 5K points, the same value lit DTs are scored when special NOT lit.
WHIRLWIND Williams (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeNice ultra-shopped but unrestored example. Plays like a charm; new display driver board installed.
