I understand remodelling to gain further use of the machine instead of scrapping it and I take it that Henri Spanagel had the licence to alter the original Bussoz machines.
You mentioned the Grand Prix and Le Grand Steeple being sold in France last November and as you don't talk about prices I take it selling this type of machine is far better in France. Do you have the sold prices please?????
How many models did Bussoz make and of what amount went on to be remodelled by "Henri" and was the company a small / large player?
Now I know as I have read on the forum that new people with poor information asking what seems like stupid questions are not that welcome and I understand this point, as I to have in the past had to answer the most stupid questions on jukeboxes so I know what it its like!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I did answer the questions and I am very glad that you have helped me in this.
I would like to see a photo of the Grand Prix rather that a black and white shot from a book so I need all of you to dig deep into the garage/loft/house etc. and take one as I am sure there is one here.
Also do you have a swap/exchange page as I am trying to buy a slot machine but also on the forum you say you need a licence to sell so I guess this is why I can't find any. I tried ebay but little there (I know why now) and there are no magazines any more - again a sore point I see.
I remember there used to be lots of bandits and we used to use them as sweeteners in jukebox deals (I will get strung up for this) also I remember going to Jimmy Brodricks with 3 floors of the damn things all lying around the floor - where did they go!!!
Well I am going to baton down the hatch now and wait for the incoming.
Let me know what bandits you have or where I can buy one.
