Re: Pet peeve on classifieds, kijiji and whatever... advice

Kijiji.. as soon as you show any interest, it feels like it's their pension fund in play. More sellers also quote based on US prices, because they've researched their game on Pinside. And now, you see it here on MAACA and Pin Rev as well. It's become a seller's market. I guess it's great when a mem...

One option for you could be this: https://stocktrack.ca/?s=wm&upc=815221026658

it'll most likely fit in your trunk/hatch as you would need to assemble it.

I can say that I have one and it is my plan to convert it in the near future. It's easy to do... ;)

I don’t understand why the Maaca price is $4500 and PB Rev is $4100? Is he trying to punish Maaca?
Nah... He posted $4500 on MAACA (and kijiji) first.
Then after the circus here, he dropped it to 4100 on kijiji, then posted on PB Rev.

BTW: Jojo told me... ;)

Re: Bally transporter discussion, and thread hijacking

Don’t want to hijack the thread but I don’t get it... “New” member posts a machine for sale and gets bashed by the wanted price. Other “regular” users post one of their “overpriced machines” and anyone who objects on the price gets scolded. Sad to see that this type of behavior is still around 10 yr...
