Thanks for having me!

My name is Pete(r), hence the DKongPete...

I live in Massachusetts and joined your group to follow along with the AR81 and AR16 projects going on here, and it's always fun to see what other collectors are up to.

I am also DKongPete on the KLOV forums and the VAPS associated with that group.

I have managed to collect most of the cabinets I 'want' (and several I never expected to...), I enjoy returning converted games back to their original glory and have a lot of projects ahead of me.

Thanks again for having me and hopefully I'll be an AR16 user someday and be able to give some feedback here.

Hi Guys,

I am brand new to the forum and just wanted to say Hi.

I am based in England and looking to start my collection. My main interests are Atari, Taito, Namco and Sega. I was hoping to find any of the following cabs:

Missile Command
Centipede
Major Havoc
Battle Zone
Asteroids Deluxe
Blasteroids


Rastan
Space Invaders 2
Cadash
Darius
Double Dragon
The Ninja Warriors

Ridge Racer
Tekken 3
Point Blank 1 & 2

My father had an arcade when I was growing up so I was really lucky to have access to lots of games. I feel like I am following in his footsteps a little by starting a collection.

Any advice with getting started would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.





Always on the hunt for Atari
