AEROBATICS Zaccaria (Italy)Set up, plays!NeverI refurbished this game for a chap 3 years ago after it had been stored in a damp basement for ten years (unknown to him at the time), and brought it back from dead. He has now gifted it to me as he has downsized and also owns a second one which he will keep. Nice gift!
AIRWAY Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverBeautiful original condition. This is the 1933 game, not the later 1937 version.  
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' 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)Set up, needs some workWould tradeNot working, but not much of a job to fix. Replacement playfield acquired and refurbished, new backglass made which is superb, game currently under restoration. Needs boards from Pascal next.
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)Set up, plays!Yes!
contact me
Purchased complete, not working and with much woodworm damage, otherwise very good. Completely stripped, cab fully repaired with old wood removed and replaced, cab and backbox fully repainted to original. Backbox interior fully restored. Playfield part done. Fully restored now and for sale via
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. Cab and backbox completely repainted to original, new coin door, bright parts rechromed, motor board fully refurbished with new board, playfield mechs under restoration. New backglass and plastics sourced.
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!NeverOnly two owners from new. Usual ball swirling on playfield which is responding to IPA treatment; otherwise superb condition overall. Now bought a CPR replacement playfield and backglass.
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!  
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 restorationWould tradePartly 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)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 restorationNeverComplete but untested. Just started on the restoration of this game.
NAUTILUS Zaccaria (Italy)Set up, plays!NeverIn generally excellent condition and typical of Zacharias, no wear on playfield whatsoever.
QUEEN OF DIAMONDS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationWould tradeUnder 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)Set up, needs some workYes!
contact me
Just 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. Now finished, for sale or trade, nice looking game. Lovely looking game now for sale via
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, plays!Yes!
contact me
Restoration completed, finally managed to get space to set it up. New chrome door, new brightwork, plastics, pop bumper caps. Plays fast, now for sale via!
SLICK CHICK Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverAbsolute basket case, bought completely dismantled to save from the skip.Will eventually restore, but a BIG job! Just started on the long haul of restoring this game.  
SPACE INVADERS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverExcellent restored condition, new CPR plastics fitted.
SPACE SHIP Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverPurchased 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. Cab now has been completely stripped and repainted in original design, playfield partly restored, new plastics printed from scanned and digitally restored old ones to be applied to acrylic sheet. All new parts required now obtained and restoration picked up again.
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!
TROPIC ISLE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverA few minor jobs to do and maybe a full cab repaint in the future, but otherwise plays nicely. Lovely playfield, repro backglass.
UNIVERSE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverExcellent playfield with only light wear to the left of each pop bumper, repro plastics, backglass and rocket disc, some woodwork damage to repair and some faded or worn parts yet to be replaced.
WIZARD Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverNew repro playfield just arrived from CPR, excellent backglass, have stencils to repaint cab. Ready for restoration to start in 2021.  
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 machines that glowpix used to own in the past
(the following games are no longer part of glowpix's collection)
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 number 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.  
FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)Sold Currently requiring a few boards to be replaced but I have enough spares to complete. Playfield glass needs replacing. I would need to check status for any interested buyer as it has been in dry storage for a number of years. This game wouldn't take a lot to put back together for an experienced pinball owner.
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!
MAGIC CITY Williams (USA)Sold 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. For sale now via
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.
