D. Gottlieb & Company, 1981
This is the first machine that I owned. I bought it in 1999 in non-working condition for $50. (And the guy helped me move it.) There was a bad pair of transistors on the driver board. When you powered it up it would energize a solenoid coil and the fuse would pop. Fairly simple fix. (I don't remember which transistors it was.)
Even though it is my first machine, I don't really love it. I plan to clean it up real good and see what I can sell it for. I expect it to fetch at least $1500. It may be worth more because it is a rare machine in the US so finding a pinball collector (or a Pink Panther collector) might increase the value.
