Title: Massive Road Trip to pick up some cabs for my basement
Post by: Tyrem on October 12, 2013, 04:13:31 PM
Hey guys. Sorry for the delay. On the 05.10.2013 we made a road trip to get me some new cabs in Neustadt, Lauda, Bitburg and Kerzweilerhof. Here are some pics. I hope you enjoy them. :)

Let me introduce my team first: Jochen and Chris. Some of you may know Jochen. He is ajhippel aka Jochen Hippel aka Mad Max, the famous Atari ST musician.

First we drove to Bitburg to give Love a helping hand and to pick up my Popeye from C3! We also took the cabs for some other guys who wanted to pick their stuff up at my shop.

Next stop: Neustadt. Krik, Luigi.. here we come!

We picked up 3 cabs for the basement. Zaxxon, Arkanoid and Cosmic Alien, the only dedicated cab of those three.

Back in the van... letīs meet the famous guy from Lauda:

What a pickup: Pole Position, Gorf, Pengo, Defender and Wizard of Wor... all dedicated... all working except Gorf. All in amazing shape! Super!

and there goes the pengo that came from the Netherlands that you brought to chris when i was there also  ;)

at least they stay "in the family"  :P ::)

Is Ully going out of the Arcade scene ?  i haven't seen him around here lately ?

is that is the case, that would be too bad, i loved to follow his resto threats


Any way, i congrat you on your new catches Stefan !

Any way, i congrat you on your new catches Stefan !

thank you, etienne. they stay in good hands since they stay in the dlf-family... you are right!

I donīt think Ully is going to quit. He seems to focus on some machines since he was not willing to sell me some of his stuff. ;)

Great pick-ups!
Nice Defender - is it working?

Next time I'm nearby I will pay you a visit. Trier is too far in the west....for a weekly visit.
Have been quite often in Manderscheid within the last years...didn't know you were located nearby ;-(

Need a scan of the Hyper Olympic TV IDEAL Marquee?

And I still need Jochen's address to send him some Thalion Games for signing them :-)

would love to have the hyper olympic marquee scan!!! and no problem with jochen signing the games. just send them to me and I will take care of this. :)

yeah... defender is supposed to work but it is stuck in bookkeeping mode at the moment due to a battery issue. not a big deal. :)

Do the world one favor: reburn the WoW speech ROMs so that it will speak understandable and "clear" ENGLISH and not the jibberish  "speech" it does now....

Wow, so is there any space left in your basement or is it already crowded? ;)

Did you already install the backglass in the Arkanoid? I wonder which one you have picked / will pick :)

ah damn, I forgot to take a picture of the tube behind the backglass for Patrick (anunaki)...could you make one, please?  ::)

I remember that free Gorf too.
About Ully : maybe too much cabs in a short time and now ... it's time to sell a few cabs!

Great Catch!!!


I love seeing how the same games we all play are sometimes built different for other countries!   :D
