Machines I regret selling .......

Postby badpenny » Mon Sep 01, 2008 9:02 am

I'll start the ball rolling ..........

An early Pace Bandit, that I got talked into part chopping for something else. It had a rotary escaltor and I haven't stumbled across another one since.

And from one extreme to another.....

A 60's coffee table 4 player pusher ...... damn it!!!! :dammit:

Regret selling............... I am still trying to build up my collection !! but there are numerous machines that I regret not buying.

Still, when I get enough brownie points in the bag I will acquire more, (now what was the name of that perfume for the dearly beloved?)

I estimate around 325 machines have passed through my hands (a lot less than many others on here) I couldn't possibly have kept them all!!!!

Williams Jackpot pinball machine. Had a set of mini slot reels on the playfield, and was the first pinball I restored.

That's curious ........ how long ago was this? I turned one of these down when I was living in Derby, and always regretted it, but as I already had two in the house one upstairs and another in the kitchen I really had no where to hide it!
I think it might have been around the early to middle 90's????

It was only 3-4 years ago. I originaly bought it from the big pinball auction in Hampshire. Taught me a lot about EM pinballs, and was a really good game to play.
