I saw this and thought I'd just throw it out there. I know it's not in the for sale ads but I don't know whatever.

$2100 USD!

Go drop $20 in to the one at House Of Targ instead. :)

I'm not sure if $2100 USD is on par with what they go for these days, as they don't pop up very often.
I loved playing it at PinCon last year.... hope it's back again in 2018 ;)

That one was arranged by myself and a like 6 others to get there and land gently in to Josh's hands, and is now out in public at Targ. Maybe he will bring it again?
For me that game will always be emblematic of the teamwork in this community that is fueled by pure enthusiasm.

Not just teamwork but folks with small to mid size pickup trucks

Yeah, the seller, Rania (and her boyfriend, Chad) in New Hamburg were very accommodating in agreeing to my offer. Especially handy that my good ol' TCPL pal, Jason (uberhare), lived relatively close and when I called, he quickly didn't mind picking it up, paying and 'storing' the Fire Escape. Awesome.

It would be nice if I get to actually play it one of these days. *sigh*

Yes I was honored enough to "store" it for a few weeks. I just happen to enjoy playing it while it was here :) I'd buy one for sure if it was a decent price.

ps - I used my favorite pin hauler, a VW Bus.

Nice.

I wish my VW could be a pin hauler. But she needs a lot of work. Anyway, might be awkward if I drove around with a pin in the trunk. *sigh*

You probably never looked out back when you came for pinball nights...:)

Che’s got one in Pin Up Arcade in Waterloo, too, if you’re not picky about the specific machine!
