Carboot find

Post by longbobongo »

A quick wonder at the weekend in the summer sun and I spot 2 machines for sale.

I've had a few finds over the years at car boots. This time I took pictures of the deal, i'm usually in too much of a rush to get my cash out and get it in to the car.

Mind boggling .... yet encouraging!

I think it might have been Steinslots that said, many years ago, his blood pressure was rocketing after racing around a car boot and constantly seeing bathroom cabinets from the back.

yep... ive been tricked in to thinking a bathroom cabinet is a allwin a good few times !PUZZLED!


I didn't see the Buckley until 11:30 so it had been sat there all day, He did say when he gets machines the same guy usually buys them. Sounds like I was lucky and he didn't go on the day.

Its defiantly motivation to get back out there after the other car boot find in the same week !!ESCAPE!!

Quite a find! Don't think i've ever seen a slot machine at a carboot :(

Not many sales around here these days, though.

If you look on youtube there are quite a few users who upload videos of people who film them selves at car boot / yard sales looking for old video games. There damn good to watch when you have a few hours spare. Some of the pinball collectors film them selves on road trips collection the machines. Ive been meaning to do one myself. maybe not filming the house or person selling the machine.
