I have been looking at some of the roadtrips over the last couple of months, and now i decided that it was my turn...

Nothing big and fancy, but we all gotta start somewhere Smiley

I bought a non working Generic cab at a Danish buy/trade/sell website...

The first arrangement was to pick it up Sunday 11/07/2010 but the weather looked like Rain and Thunder, so i called the seller and asked if he had a half a hour today when the weather was 30* outside...

The seller agreed if i could be there around 14:30

I took off pretty quick to make it... and here is the whole trip in Picture Smiley


Gotta' remember the basics Smiley (Mobile Phone with TomTom, Sunglases, Music and of course a sandwich)


12:44 and 144km to go...


Quick Stop, gonna need some cash for the cab...


Damn first Red light, and first red sports car of the day Smiley


It's 30+ outside today so i saw a lot of cars dealing with the heat...


And tires Sad


Halfway at the "Lillebælts Broen"


This Town name always seems to make people from other countries laugh Smiley


Phew, the TomTom says i'm gonna make it in time Smiley


Getting closer, the roads seems to get a lot smaller.


The destination town


Isn't it idyllic?


here it it, the generic cab from Compu-Game Denmark...


Just waiting to get loaded into my Stretch Limo (It long and White, so it must be true) Smiley


Locked And Loaded


With the 2 Neo-Geo Games (Power Spikes II) and (Kabuki Klash)

After the Pick up i desitet to take a 10min break at a local supermarket, to get come cold water and some diesel for the car...
just 10sec before i was going home, my mobile phone rang... it was, ****** (nahhh you can figure it out later down the page) Wink

Instead of driving home, i was now driving further north on "Fyn" following the coast...










Could it be?


These two greeted me at the entrance.


If you guessed "The Shed" (Muerto Place) you got it right!





God dammit, i want that Nintendo Row... Wink






Ohhh yes, the Red Beauty, I Like Wink

Great time and great guys, talked for a couple of hours...



Going home i was wondering if one of the massive power lines, was going directly into "The Shed" Wink



Followed Muerto's advise, and took a small MacAttack trip...


Come on, Come on, you call this Fast Food....? huh?


Finally on my was back home with a little snack to keep me going, (thanks for the beverage Muerto)



Had to make it home quick (got 3 af my nephew's on holiday) and we were gonna make a fire and roast bread (some more burned than others) Smiley


It's now around 23:30 and i was taking my friend Brian with me to help me unload the cab in my house...


Uhhh Corvette (Homer drooling*)


Cab unloaded...


Testing the Cab...

The Seller said that there was a Ticking sound when he turned it on, (common problem with some of the screen boards)
Well i fired it up, no ticking sound, but wait, SMOKE, damn... turned it off.. the time is now over midnight so the problem must wait to another day...
But the 2 Neo Geo games worked 100% Smiley

Thanks again to Muerto for the drinks, and fun times, hope to see you irl soon again Smiley

Hope you all enjoyed the pictures...

Thx...  Cheesy

Well, first off i'm gonna find out where the smoke i coming from  Roll Eyes Grin

The Wood on this cab is not that bad... so i think it's gonna run one of the pcb's i don't have in a cab already... (maybe keep the 2slot Neo Geo in it...)

And it's also way to "pretty" to paint and make a Mame out of... (got several other trashed generic cabs for that)

thx, and right back at ya' for the great forum Smiley

Ohh yeah it was soooo hot... There is no climate control in my VW T4 Transporter from 97'... Sad but with both windows down is not that bad...

Yeah... Muerto has a great collection of "the classics"

The only real "classic" i have is my Centipede Cabaret under restoration (burn-in) (pcb broken) (water damage) Sad

and then i got some "newer" arcades...
Cyber Cycles
Virtua Striker 50"
and a couple others...

But yes i definitely need more "classics"  Cheesy
