I bought this game as part of a package from a guy named Gus in
Indianapolis. He sold me a Big
Indian, Wild Life and
Super Straight .
I fixed up this game and sold it within 2 months to someone
This picture tries to show you what I consider the be the biggest
problem with the glass. You can see how the white framing of the
words is very jagged and not perfectly uniform around each letter.
Part of it was simply worn away, the rest is caused by my best attempts to
repair the glass. In order to get all of the red the same color, I
had to use an Xacto knife to scrape out the remaining red paint. In
many areas, that also chipped away some of the white framing. I did
the best I could trying to match the paint and re-paint the white frames,
but it did not come out as perfectly as I would have liked.
I found an ad in the paper for "pinball machines". After a call, I found out
that he had bunch of EM's. The seats exited the van, I picked up Dave and off we went. I
picked up a Night Rider (em), Toledo, and Pat Hand. The guy wanted too much for this Big
Indian, so Dave and I left. On the way home, I commented to Dave that since the guy said
he preferred the 60's em games he should offer to trade his Spin a Card for the Big
Indian. We called back on the cell phone, made the deal and went back the next day for an
even up trade. I think Dave got the better of this deal!
