This is it... after the 'badtrip' done with Pat few weeks ago for a Sega Touring Cars (see here) ... we finally found *THE* racing game from Sega  Shocked

Ladies & Gentlemen... let's go for a SCUD RACE twin cab...



...OK, well... the game is in UK ... so ?

Not a big problem, because I've a game to pick up in UK too... not as big as the Scud... hopefully  roll eyes  ... I've to pick up an APB by Atari  arrow



 arrow  So let's combine the roadtrip, would you  confused:   roll eyes  

It's friday, the 24rd of August... it's 5:38am



...usual roadtrip stuff ...



I've to drive about 30km to reach the Pat's house. He is  already waiting for me.
Have a look at the van choosen to 'eat' a Scud Race twin & an APB  shock
Regarding the size of both games... it should fits the van ... Let's cross the fingers  confused

 C.AR.P.E.D.I.E.M. !!!



...usual roadtrip tools ...




STAGE 1 : Aim for the Scud !

Ok, have a look a the first travel do to  arrow



Van's counter reset  



... Pat has his own food... he's not really ready to taste such things yet  lol   arrow



...on the road again... again  Cool



Pat doesn't want to drive in UK, so he's driving until Calais ...



He's discovering the EuroTunnel for the first time :



...a very easy procedure...



Ok, because we are a little bit early... let's take few pictures of us  lol

Darth Nuno    arrow



and Pat'  arrow



...inside Le Shuttle ...



...and welcome in UK ... I'm the driver now  Cool



Very easy to drive until the first seller... thanks to the Navigation Car System (impossible to use a paper map anymore roll eyes )



Here's the twin monster  Tongue



Very good condition as you can see  Tongue  arrow



Let's try the game... everything is fine, except one thing : we cannot hear the motor sound on the first cabinet  confused  Well, it should be an easy fix ...



Let's load it ...



This is *the moment* ... we are not sure if we can load such beast into that van... cross the fingers...



...

mmmmhhhhppffff  ... not easy ... but hopefuly possible  Shocked  arrow



The cab #2 ... same way ...  arrow



Let's protect the sides  :idea:



Nice seller by the way  Cool  



OK, now all the Scud Race parts are inside the van... but where to put the APB Huh?  shock  confused:  confused:




STAGE 2 : POLICE ACADEMY (APB inside)!

Let's drive to the seller #2  Cool  arrow



I agree with you ... the van seems to be full... but there is hope  oppps  

This is the first time for Pat to be so far of his family  oppps He's calling his wife to tell her everything is fine 'til now  Cool



...I already cross that bridge (see the Heavy Metal Roadtrip) :



...an other kind of collectors  lol  arrow



OK... here's the 'seller #2'  Cool ...and the APB , both waiting for us  Cool



The seller is collecting arcade games, but he'll leave UK for the USA in few days... and he'll bring few cab with him ... already in the 'move box'  arrow



Check this very cool Galaga... bye bye UK ... welcome USA  oppps   arrow



Let prepare the van ...



... and hope we can load the APB  oppps  arrow



Great !!! it fits... ok, we had to push very hard... but it's inside now  lol  Tongue



...I'm gonna bring back a UK spider in Belgium ... have a look a this monster inside the APB  oppps  roll eyes   arrow



After loading the APB, Pat has to get out of that van ... we didn't help him ... we were watching him, trying to get out  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue



...Very funny  lol  ...



"If you want to be a part of  the Arcade History... then you've to pay the price" Billy Mitchell [in the King Of Kong movie]  Cool



A last picture from Pat & I :



Time to leave UK for Belgium ... a big trip to go back home  confused



...[on the radio] Sweet Home Alabama ...



...inside Le Shuttle... once again... I'm calling my wife too : "Don't worry, I'm only bringing back one more small cab... no no... the Scud Race twin is not for me..." Shocked



Thanks to that fabulous machine... we can stole games in UK  Cool  Cool  Cool



...and finally, here are @ home  roll eyes   arrow



To come... unloading the games ... StAy TUnEd  roll eyes

Well maybe not more than the games, but as you can see I really love to 'roadtrip' everywhere  Cool  And I agree that UK is my favorite "territory"  roll eyes  

I'm very active on forum, ebay, ... and very often, the sellers are also collectors... so It helps to keep good relation

...and now the seller is gone in USA with the rest of the cabinets (Ms PacMan, Galaga, Star Wars,... )
I told him : "please, sell me these cabs, it'll be easy for you to buy them again in US blablabla..." , but ... no luck  oppps
