ABRA CA DABRA Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayfield is quite good. Backglass are ok. Cabinet is pretty ordinary. Could use a proper repaint.
BLACK KNIGHT Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverA nice Black Knight. Playfield is pretty good with just a few scratches. Back Glass is new. Plastics are all good. Cabinet is original and in very good condition. It took me many years to find a good one of these.  
CARD WHIZ Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFantastic Condition. Except some clown painted the cabinet. Tried to make it like it was with a hand brush. Looks pretty ordinary. This machine was put into storage at an early age. It only has 4 600 games on it. (only about 500 free games on the other counter). My others have over 60 000 games some over 100 000. Not sure why this one went into storage so early in it's life. After more than 20 years, I had this machine ripped apart (Yikes!) and professionally resprayed. Now it looks absolutely fantastic. NO, you can't have it. :-) Thanks for the great repaint Mitch.
EIGHT BALL DELUXE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis Eight Ball Deluxe has a backglass that looks new. I guess it probably is. :-) The playfield is reasonably good since most of these machines were worn back to the wood due to their incredible popularity. Recently bought some new bumper caps for it. Cabinet in fairly good condition. Machine plays well.
JACKS OPEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHey, I got another one. This one is in good condition and plays well. Playfield is great. BG in good condition as is the cabinet.
JACKS OPEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGot another Jacks Open. This one is heaps better than the last one. This one has a nice playfield, good plastics, a nice backglass and the cabinet is also in very good condition.
JOKER POKER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlays great. Playfield in good condition. Backglass is fairly ordinary but ok. Plastics need to be replaced. If anyone knows where I can get a new set, please send me a quick email.  
OUT OF SIGHT Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!

My First Pinball - as an adult. (I had a few when I was a kid too!) Playfield is fantastic. Like newish. Back glass is great. Cabinet is pretty good. It has been touched up in a few spots. I've had this machine for about 25 years now. Reluctant to sell it, but I'd like room for another machine. Price: $4000.00 if you are local. (Local pick up ONLY) I will not send it O'seas.
PIONEER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy 2nd Pin. My favourite 70s machine. I had a Spirit of 76 as a kid. Wish I had kept it. The first Pioneer/Spirit I was going to buy was lousy, so I waited a few years until I found a good one. Wish I had the plastic above the hole. Put a new plastics set on this machine. Wow, it looks even better now.
SURFER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverVery good condition. A fun machine.
THE LORD OF THE RINGS Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy 1st 90s machine. Actually, 2003. :-) Fantastic to play. I want more!

JACKS OPEN Gottlieb (USA)Sold Gone .... to someone who will do a good job of restoring it.  
JACKS OPEN Gottlieb (USA)Sold Playfield is very ordinary. 6/10 It's not really worn, but looks like water has got to it at some time in it's life. Cabinet is ok. Backglass is ok. Basically, this machine needs to be fixed up. Needs new plastics, rubbers and targets. The playfield has been touched up by a previous owner. They didn't do a real good job. For Sale: $600 if you pick it up. I'm not sending it anywhere, so don't ask. GONE! Sold!
MATA HARI Bally (USA)Sold This was in great condition. Now sold. It made space for a LOTR. :-)
