Where I got it – The R-Type

I picked up a R-Type arcade machine in the dead row at the Indianapolis USAmusements auction in October of 2006. There was a note on the cabinet that said “works, needs monitor”. That is pretty risky to just believe, but I waited just in case. I couldn’t look inside of the cabinet, but when the R-Type came up for bid it didn’t matter. The arcade machine went for a whopping $25, and I figured at the very least I could make that money back if it didn’t work.

Justin was down for the weekend, so he had the van, which was another motivator because I could easily get the R-Type home. So, with the charge for parking added in plus tax and gas, I paid about $33 for the whole thing.
