LITTLE CHIEF Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverNot sure about this one. It is in good condition but the playfield seems a bit boring. Worth restoring?

Hopefully my last Gottlieb system 80! Struggled to get it working. Fully restored and plays like a dream. Changed the backglass - original just too kitch.
MR. & MRS. PAC-MAN Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!
contact me
Took a long time to restore but well worth it.
SECRET SERVICE Data East (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBought this one purely to work through a Data East restoration. Had to reproduce most of the PF graphics because it was stored outside. Finally completed. Much better to play than expected!
SNOW QUEEN Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybeNot my favourite.  
SORCERER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBy far my favourite pinball.
SPLIT SECOND Stern (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeCompletely restored except for backglass that is flaky. Nice widebody machine and despite original condition turned out to be excellent player. Tried a new auto clear-coat and turned out excellent. Very fast.  
SUPERSONIC Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!

Very good condition. Simple play. Recently touced up and serviced.

THORO BRED Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first pinball. Keeping it for sentimental reasons  
VECTOR Bally (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeNot sure what Bally was thinking with this one. Interesting if you are an 80's fan. Need the outer backglass.

Such a lovely collection. My dad operated many vintage arcade games in the late 70's on Durban's Beachfront. We sold off the Pinballs but we still have quite a few EM Games from the 1930's up to the 1970's. Been trying to sell them overseas as no one here in South Africa cares for them.
