    Default Ski themed pachinko

    This recently showed up at a local antique store. The store owner says it was her brother's. It's been in a garage in Florida for a couple decades. She said she broke the glass moving it to the store in Virginia.

    She's asking $40. It needs A LOT of cleanup, but mechanically, the back looks all there, no missing covers, etc.

    I'm thinking if it's still there in a week, I might make an offer.

    The ski theme is kinda cool. Note "Itary" LOL! I feel like I've seen that in another pachinko here on Pachitalk.

    There's a lot of rust. The door frame will probably have to be stripped and painted.

    Ducks and ski combined ! But no photos of the back "works" of the machine one of the most important things to consider when choosing to buy a machine.

    Yeah, I should have snapped a photo of the back. I did look at. It was remarkably clean and complete. No missing covers or anything.

    Buy it. You will only ever regret the ones you DIDN'T buy...besides, that's a neat theme.

    I've seen a couple of these come up on ebay and I've wondered what the center attraction does. Please report back if you do get it, and what the center attraction does, please.

    Glad to see that Itary got some representation at World Ski.

    LOL! Yeah, I feel like I've seen that somewhere before. Thought it was here on Pachitalk, but now I can't find it.

    Also "Goal"? I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure you don't score goals in skiing. "Finish" maybe?

    I picked one of these up recently and am doing a teardown of the back and taking pictures along the way. I think this could have to do with the Olympics? Not sure, but the Olympics were in Japan in the 70s. Thoughts?

    That's an interesting theory. I walked away from this one. It needed some cosmetic work like nail polishing and the door needed painting or plating. No glass or plexi in the door either. Playfield was immaculate though, no water damage. I just don't have anyplace to put it. Love looking for this machines, wish I had more wall space.
