Show us what you found. Make us jealous!
What Dan neglected to mention was that this was a very unrestored machine at the time! Flaked backglass, ruined plastic dome, non original pins that didn't work, etc etc. I was truly shocked he didn't take the money and run away very quickly, and that was when I thought he'd already restored the damn thing!?! Very few collectors in Aust willing to pay anything like that for even the finest pieces. His is the much rarer version with a 7ft alley instead of the usual 5ft. I've not played the larger version but it can't have been much of an improvement play wise otherwise the machine would have been in high demand by operators, because the players demanded it, and there would now be more of them surviving than the short models I'm sure.
Pawn Stars is very fake / Reality TV Produced. American Pickers has a lot of normal Reality TV trickery, but you have to enjoy it for just meeting the people. I've read experiences from a bunch of people who appeared on those shows.
I still own it. It will be one of the last games to go if I ever do sell anything.
But I may have to with my latest restoration project. Damn Indian motorcycle parts are expensive.
