WAKE UP DUDE, it's a great day for you today  Cool  Cool  Cool



6:50am

Here's my old buddy 'Burt', also present with me for the Namco's StarBlade roadtrip ( see here : http://www.dragonslairfans.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=28 )



First thing to do : get the fuel  confused



Here's the fuel price  in Luxembourg... Tongue



Now playing in the car  ( it's a bacup disk of course, I keep the original safe )  Twisted  Twisted  Twisted  :



Here's the way : Belgium -> Luxembourg -> Germany...

Already in the big morning traffic jam  Sad  Sad  Sad



We reach the Germany border  Smiley



We drive... we drive ..  confused  confused  confused  confused



First stop (  oppps  toilet ) ... and take coke   I mean the drink of course ...  sorry for my bad english ^^



 lol I got you Burt  roll eyes  Cool  Cool  Cool



Arghhh, it's 11:25am, we are late on the planing... a lot a traffic jam everywhere
 Evil  Evil  Evil  ...



... so let's drive FASTER :



Arghhh, the final highway exit we've to get is... CLOSED shock



Well, after a lot of trouble in finding a new way, we finally arrive in the right town... but we're lost, and not able to found the street... So let's ask to citizen confused



... again ...



until we arrive to the right place....


and...


and ...


YEAH !!! my Holy Graal



The seller is cool and very nice... we talk about golden age games... I'll do business again with him, for sure  Cheesy

So, he plugs the game... The laser disc is not working, but the general state of the cabinet is very good... sad there's no side arts and the control panel overlay is half missing... some cigaret burn on the monitor plexi...  confused



I would like to stay more, to see others games he has, but I've a long trip go go back home, so... we load the game inside the car :



... before leaving... I have to pay for the toy ... bye bye



The size of the cabinet force us to push forward the car seat... not easy for my friend to drive like that confused



...the traditional "I'm Happy" picture inside the car, with the cab' of course  roll eyes



After 6 hours of  'hard drivin' ( ) , we're HUNGRY



Do you like american food Huh?  roll eyes  



I want to eat fast... I'm affraid someone stole the game in the car  roll eyes  roll eyes  roll eyes   Cool



We have somethink like 500km to drive, so let's get some fun...

Now playing :

System of  a down 'Toxicity'
AudioSlaves
Muse 'Origin of the Symetry'



Of course, the 'official' rain... present in most roadtrip  roll eyes



A new stop in a gas station...

Look at me... I'm so happy... I'm pointing it ... It's really a great day for me  Cheesy  Cheesy  Cheesy



... in other country... there are a lot of strange things... the shape of the Diet coke by exemple  roll eyes  roll eyes  roll eyes



In germany, we see a lot of this...



After something like 11 hours on the road, we finally close to home
 Shocked



in few seconds, we'll arrive to ... Belgium ! Home sweet home  Tongue



Have a look at the amount of km driven : 996.9  roll eyes



The game in now ... IN MY HOUSE  Twisted



other view ...

It's an european version ... from Atari ... with a PAL LD



Stay tuned for the complete restoration
