yeah ully, in fact I thought "David Vincent" was the localised french name for the hero of the "invaders" serie.
but it's also the same name that is used in the original US version (according to wikipedia)
So here's the roadtrip story for our non french friends out there.
We were agree, with "Une ombre noire", my partner in this roadtrip to meet each other in the town of "Metz", which is located in the middle of the way to our homes.
As we don't have that many kilometers to drive, I gave rendez-vous at the end of the morning, in front a famous US restaurant (if we can named them like that).
Strange days where people prefer to meet in front of such fastfood because everybody know where they are.
We said 11h00 AM, we're on time.
We begin this roadtrip under a cloudy weather, with sparse light rains all over the way.
We have for about 2h and a half.
As we come back to Nancy to fill the fuel tank, we enjoy a meal the time we are stopping.
shortly after, we're back on track :
It's been a few hour since I 'm driving, listening to electro beats. I need a small technical pause.
Of course, my partner in crime caught me while I was going back from the bushs :
It's nice to wander, but we still have 1/2h to drive. We have to go !
Strange, in that era, GPS is going a bit crazy :
Will we reach our destination ?
Looking for our way...
Swiss direction, good way :
The end was a lot easier, phone to the seller and we are in front of "superCarotte" home.
We are welcome as kings by "superCarotte" and "Maldoror" come for the occasion to meet us.
Soon arrived, soon dropped in the subject of the day :I always dreamed to do so !
ghots hands are those from of "Super carotte", jocking behind me.
By the way, curious eyes would have noticed a wonderfull "discs of tron"
in perfect shape : incredible !
So, we are here not only to have fun, we need to finish the boring job first : let's load the old granny :
We need to upper the bottom of the cab to load it straight position on the floor of the car.
Thank god we have loading experts with us
And here we are, space invaders, ready to go.
Small welcomed bonus, an additional "spacewalk" spare pcb. We will take care when we unload.
After such efforts, we need some rest :
As usual, i'm the only one to drink a beer :
Super carotte cuting chocolate cake for us.
Maldoror, very proud with his nice "toaplan" t-shirt
Unfortunately, we didn't thought to take pictures while we were in the "Super Carotte" gaming room.
This didn't prevent us enjoying playing games on all those present there.
Special mention to the out run deluxe and the super hang on deluxe.
A game room in the making, but already very impressive for its machines and also for its classic pcbs.
As we are enough, "super carotte" asked us to move some big cab parts, such as this daytona deluxe.
later, in the garage :on the right, the hidden cab for the next roadtrip on the list
It's now time for us to go back hom, we thanked "Super Carotte" for his warm welcome, It's really nice to put Faces on usual board members.
Thanks also to maldoror for his kindness and his help.
Way back home was without any trouble, even if my partner always try to do some indecent proposals
"In french, "charmes" means erotic appeal.
Arrived at destination, unloading was a much more easier than loading..
Small picture of the cab in its provisional # neighborhood :
Works better with the flash at that hour :
Thanks to all the people involved in the making of this road trip.

roadtrip dedicated to Remy aganim, who is reading us from his hospital bed.
