I remember playing it in the 80's in my hometown. That was the sitdown version, great game.
Come to think of it, never played it since, fueling was a big thing in this game iirc.

Can't wait to see pic's of everything up and running in The Extended Lair.


Another great game Nuno, very nice find
And besides good health, I wish you many more of those finds in 2009.

Yeps  Kiss I know it's not a 'hard to find' game, but it was in my 'nice to have' list so  Roll Eyes Wink

Yes, and it's a good game for 'scoring' & contest  Kiss

Ah, same seller I got my Meteor from Smiley

LOL, yes... the 'Arcade Scene' is very small in Europe  Wink Tongue

...I'm tired... but ... I hate to let a cabinet inside my car during the night  confused

So, let's try to unload it directly inside my kitchen. Here's how I use to do that :

I reverse my car... until the entrance of the kitchen, like this  arrow



Argggg.... it was supposed to enter like that... but I forgot the size the pedal on that cab...  oppps ... So I should rotate the cab... but ... it's late ... I'm alone ... I'm tired ... my wife doesn't want me having some injuries during the process   Ghost Ghost Ghost

...so I put the game back inside the car... for the night to come  Lips Sealed

The day after... hey ... a meeting with friends  Smiley Kiss

See this  arrow



Funkycochise & Zebassprophet help me to unload the game  Roll Eyes Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



I know I shouldn't but ...

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?


Yes... once again Arcade Cabs' inside the living room  oppps Roll Eyes Tongue

This side is very nice :



The other one has some scratches, but not too bad  arrow



Did ya ever player RoadBlasters... in German ?  Grin



How many games played ?



Inside the beast :



Hey, what's inside that bag ?



The back door... features the instruction sheet  Kiss  arrow



Life is good... Now, let's score on that game  Kiss
