4 SQUARE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNever  
8 BALL Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe machine needs some playfield touch-up. I cleaned this machine, fixed all issues, and it works great now. Cabinet is rough, will do a repaint later. I really enjoy playing this game, nice fun when 2 people are competing :)
ABRA CA DABRA Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverThis machine works 100%. The cabinet and playfield is bad though and needs restoration. Would like to get another playfield, otherwise I'll make a new one.  
DEALER'S CHOICE Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverSold this game, then later bought it back. 'Tweaked' the one unit and replace a coil on Player-1 scoring reel. The Game work 100%, coin unit and all. Someone previously re-painted the cabinet quite nicely, so no work to be done there. Backglass is not that great. Busy re-doing the whole playield from scratch. Glad I bought this one back ;-)  
FLYING CIRCUS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverThis game still looks nice for a 1961 machine. I decided to restore this machine from the bottom up (almost done). Firstly I had to re-paint the entire cabinet as it was painted completely wrong with wrong design and colors. Thanks to a guy named 'Nathan Hitchens' who assisted me with measurements of the original design, I manage to re-spray the cabinet back to original design & colors. The trimming of this machine was all powder-coated in black, so I had to re-do all the trimmings, and due to chroming being so expensive I opted for metallic silver which came out quite nicely. I cleaned and fixed everything on this machine and all is working 100% including the coin mechanism. Only the playfield left, busy replacing it with a brand-new re-production playfield. I'm excited to get this machine completely done.
GALAHAD Bally (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverCouple of issues to fix on this one, then we will see how it plays.
GAY 90'S Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThis game has an early "Sample Playfield". Apron & Ball-Arch is blue and not black as on later production games. Also has a different center plastic and some minor playfield art differences.
GOLD RUSH Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverGame is working, it needs a good cleanup and service. Playfield still nice (under all the dirt). Cabinet might need a repaint.
HOT SHOT Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybeMachine is very rough. Needs work, not sure yet if I want to fix it or rather use it for parts.  
KING ROCK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayfield still almost perfect. Fixed all issues and worn/broken parts on this game and cleaned it up. Game is in 100% working condition now. Replaced all playfield parts with new ones (targets, bumper caps, posts, playfield plastics etc.). Maybe I'll do a cabinet repaint later to make it look almost brand new! Backglass has minor scratches/peeling and still looks great, but if someone has an excellent backglass, I'll be interested.
KNOCKOUT Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever"Rescued" this game from a very rough looking storage/shed. This game has an excellent looking backglass. Playfield need some work and the cabinet is quite rough (need a repaint). The inside is surprisingly clean and all seems to be there. Seems as if there's not many of these machines around, and I'm planning to bring this one back to the "Ring".
SMART SET Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis machine is an early sample/production machine, with some differences in target layouts to that of the later production machines. When I got this machine it was quite rough looking, and probably had more oil and grease in it than my truck. I stripped every moving part and cleaned it properly (score reels, all units, all coils and plungers etc). I fixed all wiring and switch issues and broken parts. Removed all parts from the playfield and cleaned it. The game is 100% functional now. I also did a complete cabinet repaint (pics attached) as the cabinet was a mess. I then Buffed the coin-door and lock-bar. At the end I decided to clearcoat the playfield with automotive clear to preserve everything as it is and prevent more playfield damage. The clearcoat smoothed out the playfield and it plays great after that. Quite happy how this machine turned out!
THE ADDAMS FAMILY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis machine is in really good condition still, play-field still looks great. I fixed and cleaned this machine, looks and works great now.
THEATRE OF MAGIC Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy No.1 choice game! This was my first machine bought. It's 100% working, and in excellent condition. Probably the clearest/crisp sound I've heard on a pinball. Still my (and my friends) favorite machine of them all.
TWILIGHT ZONE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI bought this machine some years ago, and it stood in storage for about 5 years. I cleaned and serviced this machine. Apart from the color-fading on the cabinet, this machine is in excellent condition, everything works 100%. New LED Clock-board. Really a great game.

You've got some very nice old EM games. "Gold Rush" is a 4-Player? Here in "Deutschland" i own the "Jackpot" which is the 4-Player. The new WPC ones are okay. Sought after very much nowadays. Be happy to own them. Greetings from germany: Gorgar
