Could they even be restored? Cathode Ray Tubes can't even be repaired anymore, can they?

The machines aren't super high demand machines being 1 slot machines. But the games are likely worth money if working.

There are arcade and pinball restoration groups on FB that would probably be interested in them. Even in rough shape I bet they're worth something to some of those guys.

Check out the forums at arcade-museum.com.  There is a huge collector community for old arcade games.  Those CRT monitors are absolutely repairable and are very desirable on the collector market.  Most of them absolutely do not get swapped for LCDs unless some clueless person gets ahold of them.  LCDs kill the resale value and desirability on the collector market.  If any of those CRTs work, they are likely worth $200 by themselves.

The forum has a "for sale" section.  Post what you have and your location.  You will have some interest.   Post them on Craigslist too.  Those guys scour CL daily.  If you were anywhere near south GA I'd already be on my way to take a look.
