AC/DC PREMIUM Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHUO  
BANZAI RUN Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverTook some finding. Ridiculous game, truly unique. Magnificent over-engineering. Simply awesome, and a "first album" from pinball legend Pat Lawlor. Fully workshopped a miserable, tired example that was fundamentally sound. Work took ages as this has two playfields so is really double the work of a typical System 11. Sourced used game specific parts and new standard parts to get her playing properly. 6 full flipper rebuilds, new ramp, subway, used plastics, used gates, new stand up targets.  
CENTAUR Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverLovely example. Been after one for a while. Mypinballs squawk and talk board, and reverb board. The sound takes me back to early 80s arcades. Cab excellent, minor damage. Backglass excellent, minor damage. Playfield still under mylar with some competent touch up work. Played well as soon as I got her home. Superb Bally SS title.  
FATHOM Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGrail pin. Tatty example that needed a full refurb. Stripped, polished and fettled the main mechanisms. New cpr backglass. New CPR gold playfield installed in her. New drop targets. New CPR plastics set. Re-stencilled using Pinball Pimp set. The finest of all the Bally SS games.  
FISH TALES Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverVery low mileage game, lovely original condition. Came from a games room of an elderly owner that had been untouched for years. Unbelievably clean, the metal below the pf looks brand new. Plays extremely well. Slight fade to one side of the cab only.  
FUNHOUSE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverTotally workshopped. Mass of new parts. New ramps, plastics, ball shooters, rebuilt the lock mechanism with new disc, new mirror drop assembly, 3 full flipper rebuilds, numerous new Rudy parts. Phoenix Arcade decals. Resprayed coin door. Bubbling mylar that I am too scared to pull, but otherwise in really good order.  
PARAGON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBeautiful, unmolested original example. Best I have seen. Mint backglass. Cabinet red has faded to candy pink unfortunately. Lovely playfield with only minor wear to bonus numbers. New drop targets and pop bumpers. Workshopped with 4 rebuilt flippers. All mechs stripped and cleaned. Playing very sweetly. This era of pinball, the Bally pre-linear games, had the most responsive flippers ever IMHO.  
SCARED STIFF Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNice example but originally had water damaged head. Bought a mass of parts and fully stripped and workshopped it in 2016. Re-installed the cost cutting sacrifices like skull leds, skull candles, boogie men slingshots. Upgraded speakers installed. Bought a better cabinet and head, refurbished them using Australian decals. Double mylar came off without any damage. Usual wear in front of the crate. Great game with awesome sound.  
THE ADDAMS FAMILY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFirst pinball. Owned since 1999. Nice unmolested example. Usual mansion wear. Tuned so you can make the main ramp from the right flipper.  
THE SHADOW Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverClearcoated playfield. Sanctum repair. Aurich translite and speaker panel. Plays very fast. Repaired phurba ramps. Re-decalled head. Cab is nice and bright so I left it alone. No idea why, but the most responsive slingshots on any of the games I own. One of the best value wpc games you can buy due to wishy washy theme.  
TWILIGHT ZONE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHeavily faded cab, all the red is now gold. But faded evenly so looks ok. Fantastic overall condition. Bright, shiny. Mechanisms took a huge amount of fettling to get this game playing right. Every solenoid was coated in hard grease.  
WHIRLWIND Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverLovely examle. Early translite with W sticker on the boy's cap. Fantastic mylared playfield, no bubbling. Unmolested original game. No broken plastics. Topper in place, though cracked at the bottom in the usual place.
