Okay, time for yet another road trip.
A couple of weeks ago I saw a Nintendo Red Tent for sale on marktplaats.com. Because I had just bought another cabinet I decided to let this one go. But after reading Psykick his topic about the cabinet I was feeling bad about missing such a great opportunity.
Luckily Psykick mentioned that there was another one for sale, so I contacted him and asked for the seller his email. A week and a couple of emails later I made a deal with the owner of the second tent so let's hit the road and bring this baby home
The Nintendo was located in Den Haag, because I was staying at my girl's place this trip will not start in Hilversum but in Amsterdam (020 as some people on this forum like to call it
As you see there is more then one location on this map, this is because I also will stop at Level42 his place to pick up my centipede pcd, (which Robin was able to fix, thanks again) and some other stuff.
Here is our transportation for the day
And off we go
After 10 minutes we reach the freeway
Schiphol, our national airport
Light at the end of the tunnel
We stop at a gas station for the usual road trip food
After about a half our we are getting near our destination
And we arrive at the seller's place
Didn't make any pictures inside, so after a quick talk we loaded the tent in the van.
Time to visit Level 42
After admiring Level 42 his wonderful collection he handed me over the following stuff
The Nintendo T-molding
My Centi PCB
Trackball and other stuff for the Centi
And a little present, start buttons for my Rolling Thunder.
I would like to thank Andre for the present and the warm welcome he and his wife gave us.
It was getting late so we had to go, one our later we arrived at my place and unloaded the Nintendo
The tent got a pcb inside with Slalom and The Goonies (which rock). I already ordered Wrecking Crew to replace Slalom.
The tend is in great condition, not as NOS as the one psykick got but still very nice.
I'm really happy with this fantastic cabinet and would like to thank Psykick for helping me to get in tough with the seller.
In the future I plan on buying more eroms (Super Mario Bros, castlevania and Balloon fight) and making a Jamma Connector which allows me to play the Simpsons and install mame.
