It's the first of may 2008... Day off  Kiss

The target today is a dedicated TIME PILOT cab... by Atari Ireland... very hard to find  Smiley

Ready for departure :

This time, it won't go to UK... but just to France... approx 350 to drive...

It's very early... but as usual... hey... it's a roadtrip day isn't it ?  Grin

For my stat :

Let's go... on the road again... again  Tongue

At the border... ready to stole arcade heritage from an other country...

...no remorse... no regret  Cool

After approx 2h30 of driving... a touch & go for a quick breakfast...

I'm arriving at Paris...

... and here I am. The cabinet is in a very good condition  Smiley

There is no more the Time Pilot pcb inside... it's now playing Arkanoid, and so... no more joystick but a spinner  :roll:But the rest seems fine  Cool

OK, time to go now... the official picture  Grin  arrow

Hey... at this point, I got a phone call from a collector/friend, living at 50 minutes from here : Misteriddler (see his french ArcadeBlog right here ... so it's time for a improvised visit  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Yeahh... that's what I call : "Arcalde Life Style"  Grin

...and here's the man  Kiss A die hard - extreme Arcade Lover... injured by pinballs and other arcade roadtrips  confused But I'm happy to see him... and now he is in good spirits  Kiss

He has a fully working Star Wars Arcade... yeah...  arrow

We went more than one years in UK to get that game. here's an old picture of us, on the game, when it was not running just at the end of the roadtrip  arrow

(Oppss... I didn't related this UK roadtrip on the website  oppps I'll do it soon  )

It was really great to meet him again, but it's time for me to go back to Belgium  Undecided

...driving in Paris...

What a day my friends  Cheesy An Atari Time Pilot in the car, and an arcade meeting with a friend  Kiss

Arriving at my place...

...755km on the road today  Tongue

I'm alone to unload to cab... but for this one, it won't be a problem :

No more free space in the Nuno's Lair... no more free place in my workshop at the first floor... so this one will be fixed here, in the corridor  arrow

Stay Tuned for a new 'Da Renovation' story  Wink

Shame of the ugly 'photoshoped' pictures.  Cry
Next time ... just plain clear pictures will do. Smiley
