Road Trip
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:12:47 am »
I am visiting a friend I don't get to see very often. He lives in St Cloud, MN. I have been looking for a Pengo cabinet, and it just so happens that there is one for sale by a KLOVer 20 minutes from St. Cloud. I am picking up the working Pengo cab and a working Candy cab from the same guy.

My April is looking pretty arcadey. Or would it be arcadeish?

First week in April      - Pick up 2 working cabs
Second week in April  - Midwest Gaming Classic
Third week in April     - Zapcon  :woot
Last week in April      - full kitchen and living room remodel (to facilitate more game space)

If Phet invites you to take a peek into the ôspecial room", just cross your legs and politely decline.

Oh cool, I've bought a couple monitors from him, nice guy. I remember seeing the Pengo and Candy Cab in his garage. Never heard of an OK Baby, nice score, love candy cabs.

I wonder how many spools it'd take to 3d print one of those..... it'd probably be done in a year or two.

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Those Super System cabinets are turds that flake apart.  Notice it doesn't have any t-molding?  And they're very uncomfortable to play.  Dust collectors on location.   :lol

Good to know, never saw one in the wild. I like the shape of it but that would be it. Did you notice the first pic did have some t-molding and the rest of the pics did not?
