I have a weak for old arcade cabinets who are broken and left alone
The more they are broken and neglected the more I love it

So I found a monaco gp

Appointment made on the internet and I could leave





First stop is a cab that doesn't work with a double dragon pcb in it




I still don't know what I will do with it (maybe use as donor Cabinet)



Now I went to my head price of the day
This cabinet stood on a construction company outside




Between stones and beams, and all other building material
All alone and abandoned

It was love at first sight

I wanted to save this cabinet

The problem started not got his machine in motion to make room for the cab to come out
While he was trying to get it gone we started talking
This cabinet happens to be in his possession after he had exchanged it with something else he don't remember any more
He has the cab put there and not looked back
He wanted to sell it before he wore them to the container park

Once his machine started it went quickly
Took the cab on the machine and loaded it in the trailer



This cabinet is still looking complete and (he says) that she still works
I will not take any chances and take lots of pictures and lots of cleaning first before I plug it in





I have again one saved from  the death and so my quest continues on looking for other cabinets with a story and almost a sad ending

Thanks everyone.
i love the banner.
The kids are allready infected with the arcade virus.
Her at home it is 3 against 1 ( me and my 2 kids against my wife ).
I hope to make one day to make a family roadtrip.
But for the moment it will stay with a dream. Smiley
