Basement raid for some Zaccs
« on: May 27, 2019, 09:03:08 AM »

Seems like there are still hidden cabs in basements in 2019. :D
My colllector friends found a bad quality photo on a local auction site



They didn't waste their times, jumped into their cars and visited the seller.
The cabinets were in a basement and the building was reconstructed in the past years, so there was not enough place to remove the cabs.
They had the remove some bricks to take them out. :D























As you can see, there was a Scorpion, a Super Galaxian and a german cab.
All games were butchered at some point, but a nice start for a restoration. :D
The Scorpion has the original bezel in mint condition, which is a real rare gem. ;)

Nice save on those! The Scorpion doesn't look too bad, best of the bunch in terms of closer to complete.
