....there's a lead. The guy I know in Germany knows a guy in Germany who knows who bought the lot.

The sad thing: some cabs have already been scrapped.  Evil Evil Evil Evil Evil

i imagine they were fucked though, he wouldn't buy just to trash surely, unless the rest of the deal were really special items

a little offtopic:


I have read the topic about the Amsterdam warehouse-sale, got excited first, then I got that "marktplaats-hoax" taste in my mouth again. What about you Level42? If you look back on all of this. So much classic cabs (Nintendo's in Amsterdam?, I know 2 guys who literally roamed the streets of Amsterdam during the year 2001, looking for lots/warehouses, but I didnt hear them say anything about found Nintendo-cabs, all they found was Star Wars cockpits, sit down racers, MK1, MK2, Centipede's, Atari's etc.), a vaguely German buyer, the price of only 1800euro's for such a lot, the seller who doesnt respons to emails from an interested buyer, only a few pics available, etc. etc. Or is it just me...?

 Huh? pacman Ghost Ghost

Yeah, but these weren't internet pics. I think the lot was there. There's a lot of people in this hobby that do not post on forums. Language is often also a problem not everyone masters English well (or at all).

There's a whole world around our hobby that we may not know about....

I'm thinking like André.

There's a lot of people who never talk about their hobby on the forums. But it doesn't mean they don't read.
The cool thing : most of old arcade operators don't care about forum and... even Internet in a general way! Because they are not in the business anymore... and they just don't care anymore.
Sometime this situation helped me in the past for getting games at a nice price  Wink

I've no problem with the guy who live their hobby 'in the shadow'. It's their choice, but I think it would be a little bit 'sad' to hide nice collection  confused I can understand also why people don't speak about their stuff : They don't want to listen negative comments like jealousy, mockery, ...
It's the bad side of all community   Undecided

But, like most of us here, I'm too 'Arcade Life Style' to live my hobby in the shadow  Grin
