Sorry for bumping this thread - but it seemed like the easiest way to ping the South Aussies.

Did anyone from Adelaide go to the Evans & Clarke auction today involving the arcade machines? I know quite a few lots didn't sell, and I was wondering if anyone is interested in going in for the internals of a machine if I just wanted the cab (as sinful as that is of course)? I know they are open to direct offers on some between $100 - $200, but figured I'd find out if anyone else was interested.

There is at least one thing wrong with practically all of them, whether it is broken monitors, missing coin-mechs, connectors or controls, no power up or freezing after a certain screen. The skill testers actually looked completely junked.

As I said, I missed the actual auction, but apparently it only took five minutes because everyone passed on the auctioneers starting minimums of at least $150 for many of the machines. Speaking to them afterwards, I think they might be more willing to consider lower bids in an effort to at least gid rid of some of them. My understanding is that more of the custom machines were taken then the basic uprights, which is good for me personally, since that is what I am interested in.

Arcade machines start at item 1000.

Just thought I'd post a link to the Aussie Arcade forum, just incase any Aussie's here didn't know about it.

Does an Aussie living overseas count?

I'm from Sydney, NSW originally, but now I'm living in Toronto, Canada.

It's still in the Commonwealth :)

Hi Chuck,
I'm from Brisbane. Don't get out much though...

Any of you guys swim the great barrier reef or chase nude women around Nullarbor?  That's what I'd do if I was in Austria.

I've done plenty of the first two but haven't been to the Nullarbor.
