No word yet from the seller. He was going to contact me today, but no email so far. Its either tonight or tomorrow that we will have a definite answer. Keep your fingers crossed.

....there's a lead. The guy I know in Germany knows a guy in Germany who knows who bought the lot.

The sad thing: some cabs have already been scrapped.  :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

i imagine they were fucked though, he wouldn't buy just to trash surely, unless the rest of the deal were really special items

just keeping an eye on things

a little offtopic:


I have read the topic about the Amsterdam warehouse-sale, got excited first, then I got that "marktplaats-hoax" taste in my mouth again. What about you Level42? If you look back on all of this. So much classic cabs (Nintendo's in Amsterdam?, I know 2 guys who literally roamed the streets of Amsterdam during the year 2001, looking for lots/warehouses, but I didnt hear them say anything about found Nintendo-cabs, all they found was Star Wars cockpits, sit down racers, MK1, MK2, Centipede's, Atari's etc.), a vaguely German buyer, the price of only 1800euro's for such a lot, the seller who doesnt respons to emails from an interested buyer, only a few pics available, etc. etc. Or is it just me...?

 ??? :pac: :ghost: :ghost:

Yeah, but these weren't internet pics. I think the lot was there. There's a lot of people in this hobby that do not post on forums. Language is often also a problem not everyone masters English well (or at all).

There's a whole world around our hobby that we may not know about....

I'm thinking like André.

There's a lot of people who never talk about their hobby on the forums. But it doesn't mean they don't read.
The cool thing : most of old arcade operators don't care about forum and... even Internet in a general way! Because they are not in the business anymore... and they just don't care anymore.
Sometime this situation helped me in the past for getting games at a nice price  ;)

I've no problem with the guy who live their hobby 'in the shadow'. It's their choice, but I think it would be a little bit 'sad' to hide nice collection  :? I can understand also why people don't speak about their stuff : They don't want to listen negative comments like jealousy, mockery, ...
It's the bad side of all community   :-\

But, like most of us here, I'm too 'Arcade Life Style' to live my hobby in the shadow  ;D
