Hi to all.

After a lot of time and various problems (not all resolved), I had the chance to catch two cabs: Dragon's Lair and Space Ace.
Saturday, February 27th, with the person who knows the owner of the cab, we went to pick up...
A real disaster!
A few days before, had passed other people, stupidly, they have killed and destroyed the cab, carrying away both the electronics and every single useful thing, leaving the cab practically disposable.
It's was shocking to see the level of idiocy that you can get so as not to leave any other crumbs.
It was preferable to recover all the cab, but since They had arrived with a car instead of a van, they did the worst.
Public some pictures just to show you the damage.

...pics will follow...

However I find some other interesting thing: an Atari/Sega "Crowns Golf" (the cab is the twin of DL&SA cab), a couple of "OutRun" (one Usa version, very damaged and an Italian version, like new!!!!) upright cabs and three "Dribbling" coctail cabs (on various state, but from three it is possible made one working).

Yes!!!  Wink

Tha cab is in medium condition (need work), all board and monitor are present but I can't turn it on to try if it work or not.
I'm thinking to transform in a DL/SA cab (is the same cab).

Adding more pics of the devastation:

I understood, find a complete Space Ace or Dragon's Lair it's difficult, but IMO, it's too much however!!!

Yes... it's of course too expensive!

For a such price, both games should be in a immaculate condition, including spare...and the seller should shows the pristine condition... which is far to be the case with these pictures (the worst I've ever seen for a sale by the way) :







The cabinets seems to be under a ton of dust  shock
