Yeah same here of course. Another Pong clone of course, but still a sexy little cabinet ! :)

The "marquee" looks like it was created with a giant:

Yes, it totally mis-fits with the wood-look under it, but that just makes it more fun ! :)

Hah, great to see that the monitor is a TV as was common in those days :)
I'd love to own that one, if I were single it would be in my living room, it's a piece of art :)

since i have a delivery to make in the same direction, it would fit in nicely "en route". is the game still up for grabs?

question: how difficult can it be to fix the game? do we know what's wrong with it?
