My grail ;)
« on: October 15, 2013, 11:48:55 PM »
Hey there guys!
I found my holy grail and today we decided to pick it up.



Since the seller was selling the cab and at a very fair price I decided to buy him a little (dutch) present ;D



I forgot to take a picture of it unpacked so for the curious people it was "oranje bitter" ( a dutch liquor)  :P

Hmm a rainy day.... :-\



Our little refreshments on the way  8)



The driver Vond



Getting close now....



Because it's a cool sign...  :D



We're here! And there it is!!!





I'm really fond of the wear & tear of the CPO  :)



Ready to go



Having a roadtrip makes you very hungry  :P



All in all a very succesful day!

Now that's a cool catch!
I'm sooo bad at robotron but in the same time I really love it's hyper frantic action.

Yeah, nice nice cab. You should keep the sticks I think. They look like they are extra punishing :)
Looking for a container. Doesn't matter if full or empty. Doesn't matter if working or complete ... And all things Exidy!

Not yet....we are 90% sure that there is a problem with the power supply. Vond is currently looking at it.

Wow nice find !!!

It's an honor Xentraz :):)

I wonder what kind of lousy sticks there were in there originally. You would expect them to be Wico's like the US version, and those are supposed to be nice quality joysticks right ?

Weird.....I wonder if my Joust and your Robotron were once at the same place because they got the same sticks hacked in :)

Luckily I have a set of NIB/NOS Wico's waiting for mine :)
