Is this a Blonde?
« on: January 07, 2011, 11:32:04 AM »
New ad.  Interestingly, the guy doesn't use the words "Tornado" or "coin-op" in the ad, so it may be something that doesn't get noticed.  Of course, the picture doesn't show that it's a coin-op ... so maybe it's not.

He's asking $600.

Centrist- Could be a Cyclone 2. If it was a coin-op it would be a Blonde yes. I can't tell if there is a split in the cabinet. Either way it's a little overpriced...A guy picked up a Blonde Coin-Op yesterday for $150.00 and posted it in the forum..That was a steal.

How far is Marion, OH (although this table is way overpriced in the condition it's in)?

Or how about a road trip to Memphis?  I know it's way to far, but it sounds like a good deal for a grey marble...

Yeah, I've actually talked to the guy with the table in Marion.  He refused to budge the least bit on his price, even given the apparent rust (or gunk of some kind) on the rods in the pictures.  He gave me a story about how he "can't keep them in stock", etc.  But he's had ads up for the same table for a couple months.  He keeps reposting them at the top of Craigslist, in addition to his ebay ad.  He also has an ad that he keeps reposting asking to buy game tables ... so he buys/resells them.  Not a fun guy to deal with.

The Memphis table sounds good ... but it is too far.

Also, the one with the picture I posted above is a Cyclone II.

I'm wondering what this one is:

He just describes it as a "heavy duty" table.  I sent the guy an email to find out.

Looks like an old HM2000.  What are the 2 black things on the bottom by the goal box area?

The guy responded.  He said it's not a split-top.  The only other thing he said is that it's a "heavy unit".  I don't think he knows what model it is.

Could very well be one of those early home models, as you suggest.

He's asking $325.

If this were close by, I might have taken a look at it.  But it's quite far for me.  Here's the ad, in case anyone is interested:

I grew up in the Detroit area, and Bloomfield Twp is a one of those high end city suburbs...personally I'd take a pass on it.
