Ok, let's set the hyperspace to the Paul50s system... inside a country called Germany...



All systems clear... 5:52am... ready to go!



Caution on these small village roads...



First thing to do... put gas... I usually do that the day before the road trip, but fortunately, Luxembourg is on my way... so here's already a first stop :

After the Luxembourg border, here's the German one...



Are you sure we are in Germany? Yes Sir  Roll Eyes  arrow





Further evidence? See that BK sign...

Almost there...

i've been waiting for this for a long time - knew this roadtrip was coming Wink. what a giganto-fabulous addition to your collection, bruno! now you've got what i'm still longing for: computer space AND pong. don't you think it would look totally kickass if your computer space were yellow? what a sight that would be!

nevertheless, well done - must have cost you some serious bucks though, but totally worth it, especially since the game is working. i'll have to do some practice on my rally and then we can head off face to face: two old dudes, two white lines, one white block - PONG Space Ace

Respect!
Great neighbour for that Computer Space.

I think it is good with the blue Computer Space. Yellow is the original indeed, but yellow and blue is a nice match too. I would love to have the white one some day...
Happy Christmas with the three of you!

Maybe you can make a Christmas barn setup with your cabs.

PONG as baby Jesus.
You and miss as Jozeph and Mary.
Computer Space, Star Wars and Dragons Lair as the three wise men.
Angels Mr and Ms PacMan
The rest of the cabs as sheep around it.
