How in the hell does something like this happen? I mean, honestly, how does an unassuming farmer get his hands on an invaluable piece of arcade gaming history and let it fall into this state of disrepair? I mean it was not like it was a cheap Pac-Man cabinet which I am sure tens of thousands were produced. Only 200 of these were ever made. This hurts me deeply to my soul to see this.

I seriously want to know how this befell him to look after and let it get to this shape. It is not irreparable in this day and age at least what with 3D printers and CNC machines and replacing a few caps on the mobo as I have seen worse restored. But damn man this hurts too much to see haha.

Holy shit, this looks too damn cool.



Reminds me of the game cabinet I played back in 2001 or so at my local Putt-Putt.
