Seems like there are still hidden cabs in basements in 2019. Cheesy
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. Cheesy























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. Cheesy
The Scorpion has the original bezel in mint condition, which is a real rare gem. Wink

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