AIRWAY Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverBeautiful original condition.  
APOLLO Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverCab to be restored (still has original paint but was overpainted). Excellent backglass.
AROUND THE WORLD Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverBought to completely restore as the whole has been painted in garish red & blue colours 'to freshen it up'...one does wonder. I think the original paint will be accessible once the over-painting has been removed, sufficient to make templates & restore to correct pattern. PLayfield is very good & should clean up ok, backglass has been retouched to save further deterioration & is usable' faded but not too badly. Plastics ok. But whole cabinet was full of woodworm which has now met its doom! And just LOOK at those grim stickers! Gone. Only 800 made according to IPDB so pretty scarce in the UK I guess.
BLUE RIBBON Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverSome light restoration being carried out, otherwise excellent.  
BUCK ROGERS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationWould tradeNot working, but not much of a job to fix. Rough backglass although usable, but they all seem to be for this game. Shame no one seems to have done a repro as they'd sell bucket loads! Would also be interested in a swap or trade for similar condition Williams Space Ship or what have you? Pretty hard to find now, & easily fixable with Pascal's replacement board. Artwork now fully restored for new backglass to be made.
CENTAUR Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExcellent condition, new plastics fitted. Previously home used for over 15 years, superb playfield and backglass.
CENTRAL PARK Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverPurchased today complete, not working and with much woodworm damage, otherwise very good. Completely stripped, cab fully repaired with old wood removed and replaced, ready for full repaint in summer 2020. Backbox interior fully restored. Playfield part done.
CHIEF Exhibit (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverI only have the backbox for this machine but would welcome the other half! Unfortunately this was found abandoned in very poor storage conditions and all connections in the backbox have been brutally butchered. Great shame.Fabulous artwork.
COVER GIRL Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverJust purchased after years of searching, working but needs a lot of restoration to bring up to standard. If anyone has a nos or repro playfield for sale (ha!), I'm interested. Now stripped, backbox interior mostly refurbished, parts bought for full rebuild, aiming to have backglass remade.
CROSS TOWN Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverComplete, untested as yet (waiting for gamesroom extension!)  
DAYTONA  Stoner (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationWould tradeStoner Manufacturing Co, 1937, missing backglass, for restoration. My machine is the one featured on IPDB and despite this website thinking the name could be misspelt or otherwise incorrect, I assure you it is not!  
ELVIRA AND THE PARTY MONSTERS Midway (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNice condition, some cab touchups but otherwise good all round.
FATHOM Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNew CPR playfield and plastics, drop targets, completely refurbished under playfield, excellent backglass, good cab paint.
FLASH Williams (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeOnly two owners from new. Usual ball swirling on playfield which is responding to IPA treatment; otherwise superb condition overall.
FLEET Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverLovely condition.  
FLYING SCOT Genco (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverSadly this has been mistreated - found in a reclamation business near an entrance open to the weather, so the lower part of the playfield has warped. Top left corner of backglass, legs, playfield glass and front of cabinet all missing. Not sure if I can salvage this one, shame if not, as it's a nice little machine.
FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverMy first ever game and the reason for the house now being full! Also a spares machine.  
FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)Parts machineMaybeThis one has been pillaged for parts; some boards missing, but all playfield parts are there as well as most backbox bits if I remember correctly, good backglass. Also have a mostly complete spare playfield I got from the States, supposedly never used but it has very small wear areas. Playfield glass needs replacing. This game wouldn't take a lot to put back together for an experienced pinball owner.
INDIANA JONES: THE PINBALL ADVENTURE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExcellent condition, biplane mod fitted, rotating propellor. Lost plastic to fit. Idol light mod fitted. Having seen a couple of very faded examples at the recent NLP show in Manchester this can be definitely regarded as an excellent example of the game. Very fast play and everything working perfectly. It has been in our ownership for around 15 years. Spare set of second hand plastics with it (not sure if a complete set) as it needs the mode start plastic replacing, which is in the spare set, just haven't had time to strip it to fit. Also have the Pinball Heaven mod to stop the ball rebounding out of the mode start, again to fit. Now added the new color dmd which looks awesome - really suits the game. Would ONLY trade for an Attack from Mars in the same condition.
LAGUNA BEACH Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationYes!
contact me
Partly dismantled for restoration, brand new ORIGINAL backglass plus another repro Chris Dade one, playfield refurbished. I'm not really into bingos, so would trade, sell, swap for another pinball. WHY?
MAGIC CITY Williams (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!
contact me
Completely repainted cabinet and backbox. Slight wear round thumpers, otherwise good, excellent glass, plastics and playfield generally. For sale after a bit of general tidying up. Plays very fast.
MAGIC CITY Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverJust purchased for restoration - playfield is excellent and will clean up beautifully, cab is ok and has been touched in here and there, but backglass is wrecked and flaking badly, so if anyone out there has a good one, original or repro, I'm interested! Update, well on way with restoration, score motor board completely overhauled, playfield half done. Cab to repaint yet. Will be for sale when completed, had scans done of backglass art & will be having a new glass made before sale. Should be a lovely machine. Update, now fully restored and has turned out beautifully. New backglass made, fully repainted cab, playfield is superb, so this one will be the keeper and first one will be for sale after a bit more tidying.
MOON FLIGHT Zaccaria (Italy)In storage, waiting for restorationWould tradeNeed some room! Complete but untested. For sale or would trade.  
QUEEN OF DIAMONDS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationYes!
contact me
Under restoration. Brand new joiner made backbox with new woodrails, New side rails, cab to be repainted (wrong design currently), new repro backglass, new repro plastics, playfield half restored. Would swap for Rocket Ship or Universe in similar condition or cash adjustment. What have you?
REVENGE FROM MARS Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBought the playfield, daughter board etc to swap with my SWE1 - just waiting for a second prism card to arrive then it's all go!  
RINK  Genco (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverBackbox trashed, glass missing, no legs (as usual it seems!), very good playfield but cabinet in very poor state. Not restorable because of backbox issues.
ROAD RACE Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybeJust arrived in very nice condition re playfield & backglass. Strong colours on glass with only minor paint loss, no wear at all on playfield. Cab needs repaint, faded to yellow. Even has an original block of wood found in cab marked 'for shipping only'. Been in there since 1969! Very clean inside backbox likely due to it still having its rear door, unusual. Backbox stripped, repaired woodworm damage & being repainted. Coin slot panel sent for rechroming, playfield stripped, cleaned & polished ready to reassemble with rebuilt flipper mechs etc. Should be a very nice example when fully refurbished. Cab now fully restored with new paint as original, new coin door, all brightwork polished or rechromed. Playfield almost finished restoration. For sale soon.
SHIP-MATES Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverSearched everywhere for this game, eventually found it in Belgium. Under restoration.  
SLICK CHICK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverRestoration completed, finally managed to get space to set it up. Got it half way working - still quite a few issues to sort but 36 hours ago it was totally dead! New chrome door, new brightwork, plastics, pop bumper caps. Acquired second machine which is a basket case but am going to restore, hopefully to this condition which will be for sale. Fully working now and a great game to play! Now fully working & great to play, but not easy!
SLICK CHICK Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybeAbsolute basket case, bought completely dismantled to save from the skip.Will eventually restore, but a BIG job!  
SPACE INVADERS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExcellent restored condition, new CPR plastics just fitted. Spare machine for parts.
SPACE SHIP Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverJust purchased in half restored condition, incorrect paintwork on cabinet (better design than original IMHO!), clearcoated playfield and rear of backglass. Last of the Williams light scoring games and only a confirmed 800 made.
STAR WARS EPISODE I Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExcellent condition! Now updated with flat screen computer monitor and associated circuitry, old CRT monitor went south - this is MUCH better!
SWEET HEARTS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationWould tradeFound in a reclamation business along with my Rink and Flying Scot, this one was the lucky one as it was protected from the weather (stored next to an entrance open to the weather!) by the other two. Not bad condition and very restorable, some mild playfield wear above the flippers, mainly just dirty with a lot of broken parts which would be replaced anyway. No legs yet again, nor playfield glass, but they are the least of my worries! Some fading of the reds as usual to the cards on the backbox, but other reds on there are ok, oddly...As you can see, it has been completely painted over in the wrong colours, probably an operator's house style, and they have gone to some lengths to get it done well - must have dismantled the whole machine to do it. It will eventually be put back to correct design.
THE GETAWAY: HIGH SPEED II Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExcellent condition mainly but could do with cab decals doing. New cab decals now obtained, awaiting better weather to apply! Machine now fitted with police LED backbox mod. Looking for cars to mod inside next.
TRADE WINDS Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverNewly acquired, excellent condition game with minor touch up requirements. Playfield is very good with minor wear spots, superb backglass, and good cabinet paint, although of course showing 50 years' worth of life! Almost a working game!
WIZARD Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverUnder restoration, playfield done, excellent backglass, have stencils to repaint cab.  
WORLD'S FAIR JIG-SAW other (see notes)In storage, workingNeverI have 6 of these, mostly parts machines but one good for restoration.
XENON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNew plastics fitted, new CPR playfield to be installed next winter. LED lighting added. Excellent cab, backbox and glasses. A keeper!

pinball nameDBmanufactureris it for sale?notespictures
BLACK KNIGHT Williams (USA)Sold   
EIGHT BALL Bally (USA)Sold Restored from a dead machine, touched up cabinet paint, replaced quite a nimber of lamp driver transistors, playfield lamp sockets, wasn't struck on the game so sold it.
FIREPOWER Williams (USA)Sold Bought as part of a deal, fixed up and bought second playfield as the fitted one had completely the wrong art on the lower (planet) area, but wasn't fussed on it, so sold it on.  
JUDGE DREDD Midway (USA)Sold   
LASER CUE Williams (USA)Sold Great fast player, drop target game. In generally good condition, now residing at Ramsgate pinball museum!
PARAGON Bally (USA)Sold Excellent condition, great playfield and backglass, good cab paint but usual red fade. Overall an excellent example - the ONLY wear is the ball track around the very top arch of the playfield. All plastics good and everything working superbly. Interested in trading towards other machines, looking for an AFM.
VECTOR Bally (USA)Sold Excellent condition, mylar removed as it was starting to bubble, to reveal a very good playfield; superb backglasses, no broken plastics, newly powder coated legs in black, new leg levellers, cab has only a few light marks otherwise in extremely good shape. MPU recently refurbished by professional service engineer, all headers had solder reflowed. Great game but I need space to install others I've finished restoring. Looking for 700 or near offer.
