I found a Zaccaria Quasar dedicated on a hungarian auction site, the original monitor glass, cpo and coin door was replaced and there was a Missile Command pcb in it instead of Quasar, but OMG it's an original ZACCARIA QUASAR, so I had to go for it. Wink

Started around 8 friday morning(9th April) with my mini van Grin


GPS and radar detector supplied, ready to go Grin


My girlfriend started to work at the same time, I asked her to say Hello for you guys lol


It was a nice sunny morning with little traffic in Budapest

The destination was Nagyszokoly a very small village, it's about 140 km. from Budapest.
The first 100 km. to Siofok was motorway


I had to leave the motorway, weather is still lovely


Ah I forgot this pic, stopped for motorway badge, bought some overbaked pizza and coke for breakfast Grin


No time for this right now Grin Grin Grin


Passed about 5 road constructions

Finally arrived to Nagyszokoly, the cabinet was in an empty abandoned house



The guy had another cabinet for sale, but I'd rather miss it lol


Car is loaded, ready to go Cheesy


On the way back I saw a lot of deers on the fields(try to zoom) Grin

So it was about 300 km and a four hour long roadtrip.
I also bought a very good Cadillacs & Dinosaurs bootleg and a non working Shinobi bootleg with jamma adapter from this guy.
The whole stuff (The Quasar cabinet with the original Data east Missile Command pcb and the 2 bootleg pcbs) was 118 eur altogether, I think I made a good deal.(petrol was sponsored by my company shhhhhhhh.........) Grin Grin Grin
More pics from the cabinet comig soon.
I found an original bezel in Italy and a Zaccaria coin door in England, so now I'm looking hard for an original Quasar pcb and a control panel.
Anthony has a  pcb at Quarterarcade, but it has two missing chips, I don't know if it could be fixed or not.
If anybody can help me in this impossible mission, I would be very happy and thankful! Cheesy

Nice report Belike, and say hi to your girlfriend for me. You did get a nice cab, I love those Zaccaria's.

By the way, are those radar detectors still allowed in hungary? And you show it so open on youe windscreen. Here in Holland we get a large fine when we get caught with such a device.

Yes Erik, the detectors and jammers are legal in Hungary since 2005, but you are right, it's a big risk to use them in several European countries. Wink
Thanks for the "hi" for my girlfriend, she is very happy to hear your greetings. Grin

Helloooooo  Shocked Cheesy

Did you really travelled for 4 hours with half the cab out of your machine? There are no cops in Hungary? I would not run 100 meters in those load conditions in Italy  oppps

No it was just 2 hours on the way back Grin Grin Grin
By the way, in Hungary it's "half" legal if you put something heightened colour red to the item you transport, and the cops are extremly corrupt in poor former communist countries, so you can guess what happens if they stop me. Grin
A bit offtopic, some political overview:
Yesterday there were elections in Hungary and the communist party shamefully defeated, so maybe we have a little hope to reduce the 30 years disatvantage that we gained in the last century in contrast to Western Europe.
