Yes. We picked up the Gee Bee and Nightdriver for someone else.

Me too! But there is no game board in it. I knew that of course and I got the cab because it's a very rare one and the artwork is great. A few months ago I already did some research about the game, but there is very little known about it. I do know that it is a (space) shooting game.

Besides the game board the glass bezel and monitor bezel is also missing. Still I will try to get the cab complete and running again. If that doesn't wirk, I will probably Mame it while keeping the original wiring intact. You never know if one day a game board shows up.

You really need to make some nice pics of the side-art of Vega Erik ! Cheesy
Is it even in Mame already ?

With some nice agreement, I am now the lucky (?  Grin) owner of the Video Pinball !!!

From the first time I visited the warehouse this baby was very quietly but clearly BEGGING me to rescue her.....
And how could I not fall for it: The lower marquee support completely loose, some other plank lying around, the CP hanging on just a couple of nails (which I actually pulled loose because I didn't want it to fall down on the floor during transport, it's HEAVY)...and easily the most dusty cab I've ever picked up.
But, she looked complete: bezel/marquee, the pinball playfield, the LED-board, the monitor, the game PCB, the mirror, the backdropping, everything was there ! This is going to be a tough nut to crack, but also a very rewarding one if it succeeds.....


The Gee Bee was great looking ! It's the Italian "Bertolinni" Namco version, so not the US Gremlin one.

I'm also glad we saved that Night Driver ! It had been sitting in that Dutch "warehouse" for far too long ! Cheesy
