On the way back there was a Galaga in an autobahnstazion, but we didn't have time for that Grin Grin Grin

All these cabinets were also tricky gambling machines, the owners didn't want to pay the taxes, so they supplied a remote controlled switchboard and they can switch between the arcade and the gambling pcb  from the desk or from the bar, when they got controlled from the police.
Joust from inside with the 2 kinds of pcbs:


The modification is maded in Italy or by an Italian person  Wink Wink Wink

nice to hear that you finally got the chance to visit that second warehouse, unfortunately there weren't any wonderful surprises waiting for you. that joust cabinet is really strange: it seems to be not as deep as an original euro version, the control panel area looks as if a parts has been cut off and i notice some other differences as well. strange indeed! i would probably part it out and then trash the cab Twisted

were all those pinballs for sale? not that i'm interested, i'm just curious how much he was asking for the games!

That shiny Joust sidearts reminds me of a typical italian cab, many of them were made like this. Plus this metal backdoor rings a bell, we had something like that in the past. Maybe Super Galaxian, but I'm not quite sure, I'd need to go through some old photos...
Isn't there a manufacturer label somewhere attached to the cab?

That was the first thing I asked on arrival, but this guy is a pinball fan, so he don't want to let it go.
That jerk bought it for less than 100 eur and it's almost in perfect condition. Cry

I had the same idea to investigate it's origin, removed all the parts I could, checked every inch of the visible areas, but no sign of any manufacturers.
