ARMY NAVY Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever
BALLY BOOSTER Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is a fantastic pre-war Bally. After they invented the first spring 'bumper' several titles came out using this new scoring mechanism. Booster has one of the most creative application of the bumper as they've turned each hit into base movement around the baseball diamond on the animated backbox. 4 hits earns 1 run. To make things even more fun, managing to get the ball into the home plate 'cup' fires the ball back up the playfield to hit the home run bumper and score any man on base. Beautiful artwork and great use of the technology they had at the time. It's great for a little friendly competition or just to see how many runs you can get. This example appears to be in fantastic shape for its age.
BANZAI RUN Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI upgraded my last Banzai for this excellent example with prototype XR7 playfield. The game is in excellent shape and plays great. I've upgraded with new ramps, plastics, Xpin displays and some colour LED bulbs.
BIG GAME Stern (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverhigher end players example. Getting a cleanup and shop job.
CACTUS CANYON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverReimport. Complete game and works. Probably next in line for restoration. I have added the P-ROC and new CCC software, as well as a colour display.
CENTIGRADE 37 Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI picked this game up in Oct.2012. It was my first EM and appeared to be in very nice shape. I played it a while ago at the PHOF and just fell in love with it. I feel very lucky to have found this rare title! I later spent a lot of time stripping down the playfield, levelling all the inserts and airbrushing in any corrections before clearcoating it. The cabinet was re-sprayed with custom stencils I made to bring the pink back to life. It looks and plays like new now. Probably my favorite pinball artwork of all time too!
COW POKE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never
CYCLONE Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverJust completed a full cabinet restoration and am in the process of getting the playfield swapped with a new CPR repro.
DEFENDER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
EIGHT BALL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverReally clean example with nice cab, playfield and glass.
EL DORADO Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI scored this game in late 2012 from a collector in MN. It is in great overall condition and plays beautifully. Inside it is probably one of the cleanest EMs I have ever seen. About 40, 000 plays on it. Backglass has a bit of flaking but the game is otherwise in top shape.
FATHOM Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverWorking on a high end restoration...
FIREPOWER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNice player example  
FISH TALES Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI found this great example on a container deal of all places. The cabinet has almost no fade with minimal signs of abuse. Just the occaisional scratch. The playfield is in excellent condition for a routed game and everything works as it should. It was nearly plug and play after replacing a broken drive belt on the reel. It's in need of a good shop job, but otherwise a great game. This is one of my 3 favorite pins that I played as a kid. Still love it today!
HEAT WAVE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI sold my original Heat Wave a while ago and missed it terribly. This is one of the most fun 2" flipper games out there and I am in love with how this example plays! I will be giving the cabinet a full restore and touching up the playfield as soon as I can.  
HEAVY METAL MELTDOWN Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverDecent all original example. Just recently acquired this and will be going through the machine in the coming weeks. The game is a rare early test machine or prototype as indicated by the generic Bally Midway cabinet art and the drop target opening located in front of the ramp. New reproduction ramp has already been ordered and i will be investigating whether the code will still support a drop target.
HIGH SPEED Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGreat original cabinet, new CPR playfield, clear ramp mod. It plays and looks like new! Fantastic example and so much faster now!
INDIANA JONES: THE PINBALL ADVENTURE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverLove this game! Good balance of skill and fun game play with a beautifully integrated theme. Stunning artwork and great audio. Lots of upgraded "toys"; also added gold trim and legs. Great cab with no fade and playfield is near perfect.
JOKER POKER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverOne of my favorite Gottlieb ss pins and great to play with friends! This one has been totally updated with new CPR playfield and a repainted cabinet.
MELODY Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
NINE BALL Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverCab and playfield have been touched up. Great looking example and plays fast!
OFFICIAL BASEBALL Williams (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeCompleted a full restore in 45 days to bring this game to Pinfest 2015 in Allentown. The game won the blue ribbon for best EM restoration
QUICKSILVER Stern (USA)Set up, plays!Never
ROCKET SHIP Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis was my first woodrail purchase and I love the 50's space themes. The game is working 100% but it has been completly painted over and will need restoration. I've also purchased a repro glass to replace the badly flaking original.
SEAWITCH Stern (USA)Set up, plays!Never
SKYWAY Williams (USA)Set up, plays!Never
SPACE SHUTTLE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
SPECIAL FORCE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI always had a thing for this first design by Dennis Nordman. I found this one for a good price with a few bugs and sorted it out. It is a surprisingly fun player and has lots to do for a 6803 game. The cabinet and glass are in pretty nice shape. The playfield is also very good and only one or two chipped plastics.
SPOT BOWLER Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever
STAR GAZER Stern (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverGreat playing example with above average playfield. Glass is perfect; cabinet could use some work. Needs a couple of new plastics.
SWORDS OF FURY Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPlayer machine with decent cabinet and playfield. Needs some attention and I have a NOS playfield to install once ready.  
TAXI Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayer example. Waiting to apply new hardtop and shop.  
THE ADDAMS FAMILY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first pin (high school favorite) purchased in 2006. All original cabinet and playfield in very good condition. All the usual upgrades and toys. May do a tear down and clear coat one day.
TRON: LEGACY Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first NIB. It's a pro version and fully modded with fiber optic ramps, mini-arcade, Flynn sign etc...
WHITE WATER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFinished this ground-up restoration in 2013. The game is as close to (or better than) factory as I could get it. It plays like a dream and looks great. New playfield with lots of new parts. The cab was completely re-done and I have since upgraded to a color DMD. A full page shot of my game's playfield was also featured in Pinball Magazine #2 in the Dennis Nordman/Greg Freres feature.

ATTACK FROM MARS Bally (USA)Sold   
BLACK BELT Bally (USA)Sold Found this rare Black Belt near Allentown in 2015. It came with a few spare parts and playfield. Interesting 6803 with some unique features. Gameplay is so-so, but the game makes up for this with some good cheesy 6803 charm :)  
BLACK HOLE Gottlieb (USA)Sold The game is in fantastic overall condition with perfect glass and near perfect playfields. The cabinet has only minor marks and shows very well. All the necessary ground mods have been done and all connectors re-pinned. It plays punushingly fast.  
BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA Williams (USA)Sold This is my 2nd BSD and one of the nicest local examples I've seen. Really fun game with very different gameplay and rules than anything else in my lineup.
BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA Williams (USA)Sold 
CENTAUR Bally (USA)Sold Excellent Centaur with new CPR playfield, plastics and targets. Game has been modded with colour LEDs and red star posts replaced with clear. Back glass is perfect and cabinet is very nice.
CIRQUS VOLTAIRE Midway (USA)Sold Collector quality CV. I reaplced a few plastics and a ramp. It came with purple powdercoated trim and legs and several mods, including prototype scrolls. A fun playing pin and a true pinball experience!
COUNT-DOWN Gottlieb (USA)Sold This is one of the nicest examples I've seen. It has been pieced together with the best parts from several machines and also has a new ALTEK board. The playfield, glass and cabinet are nearly flawless. Supper pretty game with awesome play!
DRAGON Interflip (Spain)Sold This game was part of a large cache of NIB games that were found a couple of years ago. It had just 257 plays when I purchased it in the Fall of 2014. Aside from a tiny printing error on the playfield, the game is like new.
EIGHT BALL DELUXE Bally (USA)Sold This is an original 1981 and in collector condition with a near-perfect cabinet and backglass. Great player's game and my first early solid state pin. It has a reproduction playfield and new plastics and bumper caps. It plays super fast. Pinscore LED displays and the boards are in excellent shape.
EVEL KNIEVEL Bally (USA)Sold Decent all original example. Just recently acquired this and will be going through the machine in the coming weeks.  
FARFALLA Zaccaria (Italy)Sold This is my 2nd Farfalla. I upgraded to this much cleaner example in 2014. Very unique game (as are all Zaccs) with sounds and gameplay features not found in other games of this era. I love the weird theme and the massive amount of drop targets. Trying to knock them all down enough times and get to the upper clear playfield to get the multi-special is quite a trick! The react flippers to help save your ball from an outlane drain is pure fun. Probably not a keeper pin in a lineup of 3-5, but it's a gem in a larger collection.
FREE FALL Gottlieb (USA)Sold I always loved Sky Jump so, when an opportunity to grab this add-a-ball version of it came up, I had to jump. Picked it up in Allentown Pinfest 2014. Starts and plays but needs a lot of adjustment and cleaning to correct a few issues with multiple inserts lighting up for 10x value at the same time and one score reel isn't turning. Needs a good clean too... but very little wear and the glass is very decent.  
FRONTIER Bally (USA)Sold 
FUNHOUSE Williams (USA)Sold Original playfield that had been protected by mylar. The previous owenr removed it and also restored the cabinet. The game is in great shape overall and playing flawlessly. It's a joy to play and a hit with the family.
FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)Sold I have two machines. Looking to make one nice example to keep and maybe a player's copy (if I can find some boards and tranformer for the 2nd one)... or I sell it as a project.
GENESIS Gottlieb (USA)Sold Beautiful example with lots of upgrades and extras.
GODZILLA Sega (USA)Sold I've been excited to find one of these for a long time. Fun game with simple rules but huge risk vs. reward gameplay. Mine is an above average example with minor cosemtic issue around the flipper buttons and a couple of inserts showing some mild ghosting. Otherwsie perfect... and came with a colorDMD as well!
GOLDEN ARROW Gottlieb (USA)Sold This is a superb example of Golden Arrow. When it came up for sale within an hour of me, I had to get it. Cabinet, glass and playfield are fantastic for a nearly 40yr old game. I love the gameplay on it too. Chasing the golden arrow for the special is challenging and the addition of spinners and a bell just add another dimension. One of the best art packages of any wedgehead.
GRAND LIZARD Williams (USA)Sold Picked this up from a friend. It is in excellent condition with all the plastics, ramps and other parts in perfect shape. The playfield, cabinet and glass are all solid. I also scored a NOS playfield for this game and may consider doing a clearcoat and swap down the road. Just waiting on finishing up some renovations so I can have space to set this one up.  
HEAT WAVE Williams (USA)Sold I'm not usually a fan of games of this vintage or 2" flippers, but I played this pin in Allentown and loved it! It's an early version of Centigrade 37 with the anmated thermometer in the backbox. The art is hilarious and the two moving targets are a great feature. This is a great pin. I found one a few months later here in Ontario and had to buy it.
HUMPTY DUMPTY Gottlieb (USA)Sold I picked up this project Humpty Dumpty as it seemed like a fun theme for a woodrail and who could resist working on the first game with electric flippers? I'm hoping to perform a full restoration on the playfield and cabinet. Glass is decent.
JOHNNY MNEMONIC Williams (USA)Sold   
MEDIEVAL MADNESS Williams (USA)Sold My third machine and my first full restoration. This was my Everest. Paid a lot for it and threw a lot more into it. All new decals, re-plated everything, chrome trim and legs. Did a little playfield restoration and automotive clear coat.
MEDUSA Bally (USA)Sold Decent all original example. Just recently acquired this and will be going through the machine in the coming weeks.  
MELODY Gottlieb (USA)Sold I grabbed this rare AAB version of Sing Along in a multi-game+cash trade deal involving my CV. It is my first 1960's pin and also first with 2" flippers. I love chasing the 4 inserts and then hitting the saucer and watching the ball travel from one to the other while collecting extra balls. It's a challenging pin and the gameplay is surprisingly good for the era! This one came with a new repro glass  
METEOR Stern (USA)Sold Picked this game up in upstate NY. Playfield is decent but has a few signs of age. I did a light touch up and waxing to make it look and play as good as possible. The cabinet is in good overall shape as is the backglass. The previous owner did a lot of work on the boards and the game seems pretty solid. The game has been updated with new plastics, drop targets and flipper bats. I've also refinished the coin door.
MOTORDOME Bally (USA)Sold Just picked up this project pin for fun. Looking to get it running and will likely move it along once I need space.  
PINCH-HITTER Williams (USA)Sold   
ROBOT Zaccaria (Italy)Sold Another rare and unique Zacc to compliment my Farfalla. I love the quirky robot targets that pop out of the playfield and the simple yet fun objectives of this pin. I obtained this one in a trade deal and should have it home and all cleaned up by Xmas 2014  
SCARED STIFF Midway (USA)Sold Very nice all original example with no crate wear and non-faded cabinet.
SPACE STATION Williams (USA)Sold I got this game in a multi-game trade as Ive been intrigued with several system 11 titles. I'm also a fan of Space Shuttle but always felt it was a little too thin to have in my lineup. This game seemed similar but with more to do. I was pleasantly surprised by the fast gameplay, tricky ball control (no in-lanes) and the awesome audio and callouts... not to mention Condition Green multiball. The separate green GI on this pin is fantastic; especially with LEDs! This example was in home use since 1990 so it is in exceptional condition and playing great.
SPIN OUT Gottlieb (USA)Sold Just picked this game up. Works fine but needs a little cosmetic work.
SPIN OUT Gottlieb (USA)Sold This is my 2nd Spin Out. For this example the cabinet was completely restored and the playfield cleaned with many new parts added. Repro backglass from BG-resto.
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION Williams (USA)Sold   
STRANGE SCIENCE Bally (USA)Sold After expanding my tastes further into these Bally 6803 pins, I had to try Strange Science. I was pleasantly surprised after playing it at the VFW. I searched for and found this great example in Montreal. The game has full mylar playfield, working topper and decent cab with perfect glass.  
SWEET HEARTS Gottlieb (USA)Sold Sweet Hearts has just undergone a complete overhaul with new cabinet paint and the playfield has been completely shopped, with many new parts. I've upgraded to yellow dot flipper coils and used the tightest fitting rubber rings I could. It now plays fast and mean. A great player all around.
TALES OF THE ARABIAN NIGHTS Williams (USA)Sold This is a near perfect example of this beautiful pin. The playfield is pristine with none of the typical ghosting that's common on these games. The cabinet is bright and everything else on this game is in top shape. It has custom brass plated trim and tons of brass plated playfield parts done by Mike Chestnut; including the apron. All new ramps, plastics etc...
TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY Williams (USA)Sold This is an excellent all original example of this Steve Ritchie Classic.
THE LORD OF THE RINGS Stern (USA)Sold Purchased this in Oct. 2012 2nd run HUO with under 600 plays at that time. Game is pristine.
THE SHADOW Midway (USA)Sold This game took a while to grow on me. Maybe I could never get past the bad translite :) I had the opportunity to pick up an inexpensive example and now I love it. It's a great restoration candidiate so I have torn it down and am in the process of giving it a refresh.
TWILIGHT ZONE Bally (USA)Sold Just finished a full cabinet restoration and playfield clear coat. This game is super clean and I have it almost perfectly tuned. Completely tricked out from new clock board and housing to Tracy's robot, slot and piano mods, gum balls, protectors, rocket, LED kit, blue flipper rubber.... you name it. Can't wait to start racking up the high scores!
VOLLEY Gottlieb (USA)Sold I played this game a while back and, even though the tennis theme did nothing for me, I got hooked with the 3 banks of drop targets and cool scoring strategy.
X-MEN WOLVERINE LE Stern (USA)Sold Wolverine LE bought NIB #109 Great game and fantastic shot layout, animations and modes. The light show rivals ACDC.
YANKS Williams (USA)Sold Project machine. Needs some attention. Glass and running man unit seem to be in good shape. Playfield has faded purples.
