CLEOPATRA Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverNeeds working CPU board.  
DEMOLITION MAN Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThis is a working project. I had this machine running great and I lent it to a friend to put on location. Machine now has some problems and is filthy; needs dismantling and cleaning. Topper was broken; so no topper.  
DRACULA Stern (USA)In storage, workingNeverPoly-coated.

HAUNTED HOUSE Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNever  
HIGH SPEED United (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
LECTRONAMO Stern (USA)Set up, plays!MaybePlayfield is good; some minor wear spots have been repaired. Cabinet is solid and in good condition. Backglass is fair with some small missing sections; still looks pretty good. Machine has been cleaned and new rubber rings installed; plays great. Good starter pinball.
LITTLE CHIEF Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverI bought this machine to gut and use as a fixture to develop my own electronics. This machine has severe problems; a shorted relay caused a fire under the playfield and previous owner removed and dismantled a scoring unit located in the back box. Not really feasible to repair; so good candidate for development fixture.  
SHAQ ATTAQ Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeShaq Attaq full size pinball machine. Plays great; just put a 1.9+ billion points high score on it. Has a brand new playfield. All new rubber rings installed. Will also include the original worn playfield for buyer to hang on wall or whatever. Original manual with schematics included. Cons: Home use only; does not take quarters. (Has a button installed on coin door to add credits) (An original Gottlieb pinball coin door for this machine should be as easy as bolt on and plug in) Several playfield plastics are broken. Entrance to ramp is cracked on left side, but I had a stainless steel protector made; looks great and works great. Coin door is dented, but still opens and closes fine. DMD display looks good except for one missing verical line. Playfield glass has scratches/marks. Speaker plastic in backbox is cracked. Plastic backglass lift channel needs to be replaced. Cabinet metal near flipper buttons is discolored. Hoop net is tathered; but I have a brand new replacement that is included. See pictures for condition. I believe this machine was re-ported to the USA from Germany; looks to be a machine originally built for the German market. Great playing pinball machine with lots of depth. Basic premise is to complete all of the different modes to play in the finals (final mega mode). Has a scoreboard on the playfield that keeps up with baskets made by each player; the baskets are tallied at the end of the game as part of the bonus points. You can compete with your friends on score or baskets earned or both. I have to admit that this game is much better than I believed before I played it very much. After playing it alot, I realized that you have to make many shots to master this game; it's not a one shot wonder which makes some games boring. The swinging basketball hoop is very difficult to master; but you have to make it through the hoop to get big jackpot and super jackpot payouts. Stereo audio, graphics display (DMD), ramp shot, upper and lower flippers (4 flippers total), drop targets, a variable positioin target (typically only found on Gottlieb pinballs), habitrails, a spinner on a loop shot, a spinning disk on the playfield, several different multi-ball modes, and a jump shot to make the ball airborn for the hoop shot; a lot of features packed into this machine. Many NOS parts are still available for this machine; the ramp and display can be replaced if desired. Pick up in Garland Texas; sold by an individual. More info... I got this machine several years ago, and only recently started working on it. Previous owner attempted to install a new playfield and did a real hack job. All of the wires going to the playfield were cut and I had to re-solder all of them back. I'm color blind, so I made some mistakes that took me days to track down. The LED score board assembly and harness was missing (presumed lost by previous owner), so I had to buy one on EBAY. Game plays great, but the entrance to ramp is cracking on left side. I designed a protector, and had it made locally; works great! Will be including the original worn playfield with purchase. Very fun game; contrary to what I've heard about it from others.
SPACE MISSION Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverPoly-coated.  
SPIRIT OF 76 Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationMaybeBought at an estate sale. Cabinet is ok, playfield good, backglass excellent. Some broken playfield plastics. This game is first EM machine I've owned that has the metal backbox door. Will be cleaning up to resale. Would sell for $300 as it sits; local buyers only.  
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION Williams (USA)In storage, workingNever  
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverEarly model. All new ramps installed.  
THE ADDAMS FAMILY Bally (USA)In storage, workingNever  
TWILIGHT ZONE Bally (USA)In storage, workingNever  
X'S AND O'S Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI don't know why, but I really like this machine; it's the only machine I play anymore. I would like to yank the playfield, touch up the paint, and poly-coat it some day. I replaced both plastic pieces next to the flippers with pieces made out of aluminum.

pinball nameDBmanufactureris it for sale?notespictures
FOXY LADY Game Plan (USA)Sold Custom modified original CPU board that uses newer type CMOS RAM and EPROMs. Modified cabinet wiring to make more reliable. Added remotely mounted cord- less phone battery for memory backup. This machine has been sold, but I have another one that I will eventually get running and sell. It was sold to a day care center!  
HIGH SPEED Williams (USA)Sold Very nice machine; I'd rate between an 8 and 9 overall. Played great!
HOT HAND Stern (USA)Sold Machine is in average cosmetic condition. Playfield has some minor wear around inserts, but no major wear areas. Cabinet is in solid and good cosmetic condtion; average/typical wear for age. Backglass is fair with peeling mostly at the bottom. Would rate machine around a 6 or 7 in overall condition; backglass is primary reason for lower rating. Machine is playing very well.
POKERINO Williams (USA)Sold I no longer own this machine. It ended up being a great playing and fun game.  
ROAD KINGS Williams (USA)Sold This was a great playing system 11 machine that I bought to resale. Had some minor problems, and cabinet had severe sun damage. Playfield was in good condition as was the backplexi.
WORLD CUP Williams (USA)Sold Machine was in fair condition, but played great.
