because the seller lives in a newly-constructed part of the town which doesn't show on the gps, he provided me with a detailed map of how to find his place. it's nice to drive with a map in hands for a change
he also provided me with a couple of "personal pictures" of his house. it should be a piece of cake now to find it!
arriving at the seller's location i'm comparing the printed out pictures with reality: THIS IS IT!!!
before i introduce you to the seller, let me introduce you to the toobin' machine first
left side, right side ...
front side, back side ...
the game in its full glory
as i've written earlier in the WANTED thread: the sidearts have some damages, one of the gators is missing, there is no control panel overlay, the bottom t-molding is broken off in many places and - what's the worst part - the wood on the right side of the control panel took a HEAVY
beating. i don't know what happened to it, but it looks BAD
. this will need some serious restoration!
now that you've "met" my new arcade game, i want to introduce you to nicolas (more precisely: to nicolas' back)
and now, ladies and gentlemen, nicolas' front (or one half of it
ready for the exchange?
let's see if the games are working first (which they are)
say goodbye to your toobin cabinet, nicolas! this one's MINE
the loaded game inside my car. i'm thrilled!!!
before hitting the road again, i'm allowed to play a couple of games on nicolas' crystal castles arcade. i'm such a huge fan of that game (and the design is simply AMAZING
), unfortunately i don't own it myself (YET
). does anyone here have a spare cc for sale (or for free)?
somehow i like that picture (although my hair looks worse every day - i HAVE TO get a haircut, HAVE TO, HAVE TO, HAVE TO)
time to fuel up the car - there's no better place like this! i simply couldn't resist
the strenuous journey home is about to begin! stay tuned ...
