S I Roadtrip
« on: July 22, 2022, 07:54:41 AM »
Hi guys,

there was an arcade machine  offered for sale at the austrian online bazar, which I would have a) never bought for that money and b) well I wasnt really looking for this game anyways.

Well however, now it?s sitting in my garage  ??? ;)

I contacted the seller and told him what I was willing to pay for it, he gave me his numbers and we found an agreement ( well on the way to him, I was asking myself what am i?m doing )



Here we start and soon, I hit the old known highway bridge. Maybe you will recognize it from one of my earlier roadtrips, now with a 2nd bridge beside the main one. But hey, whats that, some hint about the purchase? :D



Sorry, no pictures at the sellers place, but here a 2nd little teaser on the way back...




Sidestop by an collectors friend, a little gossip and presentation of the newest purchase, then it was time for a lunch ( well the meal got served after this following picture )



And now at home, you will see what I got ( rolling drums )



It is the well known....



Super Invaders!



Built in 78 or 79 and look at this beautiful condition




nice coindoor, some Atari machine?s had them too.

Off course, the game doesnt run. Because the metal backdoor was put aside, we nearly bent the pcb while packing the cab into my SantaFe, which moved out of the cab.

Ok whats next? Cleaning, fixing and playing...



Finished with:  245 km, 4h trip ( incl sidestop and lunch ), 1 neighbour state visited, a few Euro?s and space shorter...
