The steering wheel looks to have the Kee logo on it, but that doesn't say much, the cab doesn't ring a bell...

 Tongue it's weird.. not the first time that it would occur at "big scales".   we remember the weird facts for "Luna city arcade" finale showdown...

beware Darthnuno & Superully,  (and myself among some others..),    madness is reachable at a point..  Grin

yep or what we read of..  but i assimilate it about "mental" issues  we all can have at a high point of collecting unusual stuff and become crazies..  (lunacity had psychiatric troubles.. vossens.. well it's weird too..  that wouldnt be the least.. and loads of people cant figure we can handle this at a point,  perhaps they are right..  or we are beyond this point.. and that is sometimes danger..)

All I know about Peter from Luna City is that the issue was a divorce. I don't know the details and I don't have to know, it's sad as it is....but I have Peter on my friends list on Facebook and AFAIK he's doing OK now.

But yes, you never know....it's true.

Bartie, please listen to me. I really recommend to go there by daylight. The place is a complete MESS and the danger of stumbling over some of the debris in the dark and getting serious injuries is very high!! Plus you won't see very much unless you install some serious lighting to light up the whole area.

Go on Sunday, or rent a room in Worms from Saturday to Sunday. This place is abandoned (except the assholes who go there to even increase the mess) and there's a decent distance to a hous with people living inside so no one will be disturbed on Sunday.

And don't forget to bring a cordless screwdriver. You also might need some drills to remove rusted screws....guess where I know from  roll eyes


Ol, I already pulled the bezel of the Grand Champion. You never mentioned the other parts, only the bezel. The controlpanel was broken, what could be pulled is the wheel, the shifter and the gauge(s). Don't know if the wood with the score display can be easily removed. We (ajhippel and I) had some trouble getting the bezel out. We had to go from the back and removed the monitor. Maybe it's only removing some screws to get the whole thing out.

The controlpanel and the bezel of the Field Goal are gone meanwhile, don't know who got it now  Undecided   Marquee and PCBs had already been removed before.



Good luck, guys!

Jochen saved a Space Zap mini. A lot of work ahead... but at least it is here now.
We also saved some boards... no idea what we have there though.
