Hello,

I'm Chase and I live in the great Los Angeles Area.

I've always had an interest in candy cabs but haven't done a lot of research until recently. There is a deal near me and I was hoping to get some second opinions.

Hi, sorry for the very late reply :)

The first game I fired up was probably Storm Troopers or Metal Slug, I got the machine with some Neo Geo Multi Cartridge in it.

The first game I actually bought myself was Shinobi. This was the first game I ever played as a kid, and it felt right to have it.

Hello! I have been playing video games since I could remember. As of January I have been on the hunt for an arcade cabinet of all sorts. I ended up finding a Sega Aero City in my area, it is in amazing condition for the price I paid an I plan on restoring it. As I take my journey I will document every step of my restoration process for future reference for other people to see.

- Thank you!

I've been using this site as a resource for a while to help me restore my Aero City cab, but I'd love to be a bigger part of the community, I mostly hang around NeoGeo.com and a bunch of those guys recommended this place

Howdy guys - mostly just a thanks for the forum. It's insane how much useful information is buried in these threads. ninns NAC restoration (http://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=21605) has saved me an age of research.
