Son of a bitch that's a the remains of a Zac cockpit and it has the f*cking foot pedal!!! See 5:09.

If anyone knows anything about this place and is nearby, please grab the remains of the cockpit - the IGR power brick, boards, control panel and THE FOOT PEDAL and the cash box door. Well, everything that's not wood (except the back door, that I also need). And if you see them laying around, the instruction cards from the glass.

Paul.

Is this the "Vossen" place the AZ guys have been talking about over the last few days?
http://www.arcadezentrum.com/forum/showthread.php?24227-Arcade-Friedhof-in-Worms/

If so, someone should be able to get the parts for Paul, I think some of the german guys are rather close to Worms (Laschek?).

Paul, 'someone' will take care of this foot pedal this afternoon!

Why do you think did I ask so many questions yesterday? Wink

When I saw the first pictures I immediateley remembered that Buck Rogers cockpit and I was like 'please someone has bought/saved that cab'. Then I saw a picture with the foot pedal and the controller and some wood around it and my heart missed a beat. Then I thought 'wow, I can help Paul with that' Smiley

I will look around to see if there's more left of it and grab it. But the pictures and the videos show nothing I recognized as a part of the cockpit...so not too much hope here, please  Undecided

Mmmmmm, Spaze Zap cabaret ? I missed that, is it the upright version with the mirror ?

Probably broken anyway now.

Clearly some guys had some "fun" on those poor machines.... Twisted

But indeed, stuff there that still can be of value.....noticed the Zacc cockpit steering wheel right away and thought that would be useful for someone Wink

PP cockpit looks  like it survived a bit ? Too bad it's not a bit longer in the video Wink

Ouch, two lovely Universal games... I could use the marquees if they were still around; someone headed over there?

Holy shit!  shock Evil
What happened there?! I'm a little off Internet these last weeks, so I wasn't aware of this mess!  shock
In short, do these games belong to a group of private collectors? (the guys on that video?) ...and they found their games broken like that! The worst nightmare possible! Shit! Evil

A terrible shame to see those cabs smashed, but some good can come out of this like Paul said, with parts that people may need for their games?

everything was unfolding last saturday.
an operator called Vossen from worms/germany collected a huge amount of cabs over the years. unfortunately that guy had a terrible reputation. little facts are known why the cabs are in the current condition. the rumor is that he smashed them due to a legal dispute with the landlord of the storage. at leat that is what he told to some german collectors. no matter what happened... it is a terrible shame. we all would have loved to help.. if we only had known. but the vossen-guy is famous for his strange state of mind. everybody dealing with him in the past told me that he was a real pain in the a...

the german community is constantly traveling to the storage to save what is left. there are still a hell of a lot of shells in there. jochen and the guys from neustadt called me a few hours ago. let's see what the are able to save.

the vid was done about 3 days after the party started , when most cabs have been trashed , gutted or taken . dunno how many have been there some weeks or months ago . maybe 100-200 ?! hard to tell . its frustrating to stand by watching a bunch of idiots trashing stuff worth thousends of eus for maybe 50 eu scrap metal reward .

to make things worse i ve unburried an old vid taken on the location some years ago .. arcade is a one way trip leading into madness ..
