I can see a few good cabs - G-loc looks in great shape! lots of pins too!

Someone go save them quick.

Really, one of my dream is to find a place like that.
Like that other post about the "abandoned warehouse roadtrip".
So much more exciting than buying cabs from ebay...
Nice pictures though.

...and I don't know what I want now, but I surely want something   ::) I'm waiting the story  :P :P :P ;D
Maybe some treasures hidden over there? Very exiting!  :)
Yes, don't let die the APB and Gauntlet!

Hey,

I would go there and save every classic cab you can find - also the pinballs as well. Any of those generic German jamma 'helomat' style cabs I would just take the gameboards and remove the monitor.

Have a great trip guys - also think of me when you've got all the stuff :D I wouldn't mind maybe taking an item or two (don't worry not interested in APB or Gauntlet!)

Arcade power.

From this pic there's an Afterburner also in the background and an Enduro Racer! (Enduro Racer isn't the best game - if the cabinet is too broken still take the boards - can be romswapped to Space Harrier :D)
