    Default Vintage and modern - $25 each!

    Here are some pics of the 2 machines I picked up the other day.
    I beat the guy down to $25 each.

    One is a Sankyo Sports theme in great condition.
    The other is a Nishijin Model A single shot, which I've been looking for. It's not in as bad of shape as it might look. I may need to rechrome the frame.

    I for one find the latter extremely attractive. The modern was just frosting on the cake. I'm quite frankly giddy like a schoolgirl on Christmas morning, whatever that means.

    I have a neighbor/friend who takes a great deal of pride in capturing every pachinko machine for sale in Western Washington and offering to sell it to me. The price always ranges from $200 to $500. Um, no. This one frustrated him. I did something very naughty to distract him from getting these, and I really need to confess someday, but that is a story for another time. It had the added bonus of making the seller feel desperate to sale.
    I'm naughty.

    Fantastic!
    They look great. Have fun with the clean up.
    Is the Sankyo a fever type machine?

    hey. it's a vicious pachi world out there on craig's. I've been scooped twice now, and it's pretty darn annoying. just about have to pin the person down, tell them you're coming right now, and show up with the cash.

    of couse, I always rationalize that I didn't need those 3 moderns for $75, but just think how happy they would have made me... the wife, not so much...

    do tell us your story some day, we have to keep honing our pachi hunting skills, afterall
