...the Weather Started Getting Rough
« on: October 26, 2009, 01:54:16 pm »
Take a gander at my latest acquisition.   I've not had any time to do anything save for remove the batteries (there is the beginnings of some damage...glad I got to it when I did!) and wipe down the glass.  Overall she's in DAMN GOOD condition... it needs a bit of a cleaning and the battery damage neutralized (very very very minor) and the discs gearing needs some grease (it's pretty loud and they don't seem to be spinning as freely as they should)... but aside from that,  she's 100%!   I think I replaced 6 lamps.

Not bad for 7 bills eh?













These photos were taken at the little old ladies house where I picked the pin up...(fitting that it was raining, eh?)

Frizz, nice pickup. One of the many titles my university's student union had, and I'm happy to say I've logged many a fun game on it.  :cheers:

Nice pickup - especially for the price.  That game - 100% working - goes for about $1100 to 1500 around here from what I can tell, depending on condition.
