After several years of looking, I finally own the Journey arcade machine from the early 80's. I had one lined up on Ebay about 5 years ago but one of the guys at work picked up the phone line and ruined my connection, thus making me miss the auction. I guess things happen for a reason as I now have a pretty nice machine. Now I have to find a new top 5 list of machines I'm after....

Sweet, does the tape play in it too? I started buying some arcades myself. I need to rebuild the Arcade I once had. I miss my Arcade Games. Heres what I picked up recently:

Mr Do's Castle in Gorf Cabinet ( Thanks to a poster here : ) )

Mr Do!
Pleades
Wizard of Wor ( Scott from DP actually delivered these from SC for me Thanks : ) )

Ameridarts.

Pretty much all need work on them though. Mike : )

It has the tape deck and the original tape in it, but I have not gotten it up and running yet. With a little tinkering it will be working. The machine is in very nice shape and everything powers up. The guy I bought it from said it worked last time he played it but it has been a while.

My new top list of wanted machines is:
Lunar Lander
Gorf
Xenophobe

Journey Update. I have the new CPO overlay to install and then I am done. I have the tape deck working too.
I plan on taking it to the next CCAG show along with some other classics I have. I will post a list prior to the show and we can let the board members pick out which games they want to see.
