Title: # ROADTRIP - Three cabs#
Post by: wanou on August 07, 2007, 06:16:22 AM
Today it's Roadtrip Time  8)

 After a long time of inactivity, I decided to leave my den from where I hibernated.  

today I use a weapon of massive safeguard of the 'rétro patrimoine' (french copyright) : D.

To constitute of a vehicle which with already proven reliable I decided to pass to the serious things by adding true to him a trailer 8).

Two axles supporting each one 750Kg what leaves what transport all the reasonable cabinet until R-360 ;D (not on the car manages to tractor draw :-X)

This I say will not seek R-360.

In fact, the objective is to recover a doubles screen cab in “Mint” condition. The owner with have evil to release it but good, considering the state that is worth the blow ^-.

The second is great classic of Taito with Gun. I saw some passing two to the sorrow y' has one month 1/2 :? , of the blow I folds back itself above.

And finally the last a atari which I will have tendency to call “credits”.

I will ask you for a small silence minute: (to the attention of Nikos69 which prefers outward journey boser rather than to accompany me: D.

Before leaving in roadtrip it is essential to feed

Appointment is thus taken with the "SUPER U" (french super market) with my wife :D

After a good small meal and the desistance from Nikos69 8) (Hello Nikos ;) ).

Direction the adventure and beyond.

I benefit from a small installation to ensure me that the road is always there - > photo memory.

Is necessary to say that the copilot having released me (not reliable these small sizes that fall from sleep) I had to stop me to check the road.

Arrived on site and after a few moments here us are at sharp of the subject. They are there : -)= and fully functional. I like the life ;).

More than one year that I had located them. Following my mishap of at the beginning of June (two opé Wolf and a roadblaster inter alia to the bucket :O ) I organize myself to recover all the cabinet located. It is necessary to make quickly to save alls the cab  >: D.

Arrived at 2Kms of the house, the 'tuille' :(, meets with a reaping-machine threshing-machine launched at full speed.
I am so tired it is close to 21H, the sun gives signs of tiredness. It remains to descend the cabinets and there is no light in my place of storage :-(( (http://img53.imageshack.us/img53/4008/16zp9.jpg) (http://imageshack.us)

Small zoom on max. speed On my meter I have the same :-X.

And, if you noted it there were three cabs to recover at the beginning of the adventure :D It is there, the last cab in state “mint” for the owner (I do not have this opinion but good…). It is about a megatech from SEGA, technically it acts of mégadrive. And, just like concurent it Nintendo PLAYCHOICE 10 this cab is equipped with two screens. The screen top being used to select a play (see the rules). It is especially it which with justified my displacement. The sytème 1 and opé Wolf being easier to find.

Hi Wanou,

Thanks for sharing your latest roadtrip with us , and writting it in english  :o

I see you have a trailer with two axes... I'm already jealous  :oops:  ... the perfect weapon to bring back our beloved babies  :lol:  :lol:

So all the games are running ? That's cool  :) All theses cabs seems to be in a very good shape  :o

The Sega Mega-Tech is not a common cab, congrat for finding a working one (the small screen on top is usually non working... I hope yours is fine ?)

Take care about your new babies... but ... Do you have enough free space in your house  :roll:  :wink:

I bought the trailer especially for the after burner deluxe  :P .

I already found it but I do not have the place to store it for the moment.

My gameroom is not available  :cry:

Indeed, the three cabs are functional.

The opé Wolf and system 1 side art are diluted but it is not too serious.

The small screen top of the megatech is beautiful, no burn  :D because the cab with very little turned. Only 1700 parts.

I bought for my future game room which will make 45m².

But with this rithme it will be full for the opening  :twisted:

Nice score ! Especially the Sega Mega-Tech. Good luck in finding room for them, that problem is so recognizable (if that's English  :? )
Let us know when you fire them up, curious just like Bruno if the top-screen of the Sega Mega-Tech works.
Your story really makes me wanna do a roadtrip a once again.
Keep up the arcade life style !
