Tempest Sold!

It reminds me a little bit of my trip to Nashville.  That next weekend I sold off what I got.

Today I sold the Tempest cabinet for $50.  Not an outstanding price, but a fair price for someone and it helps it move.  I didn’t get that much attention in 12 hours, and it is going to someone who really loved the game growing up.  It sounds like this guy is going to make it into a Mame machine, but mostly preserve it.  He has some great woodworking skills, so he will probably do a little fixing on the cab and make it into a fun and great machine.

I am just glad it went to someone who wanted it.  I was getting tired thinking about tracking down parts and having my costs wrapped up in a game for over a year that I wasn’t sure I was going to keep.

I just wish I could have gotten scans of the sideart, or close up photos, but I ran out of time.  It’s all good though.

But I think it may be in my destiny to not have a Tempest.  I have had possession of two now (including the one I sold to Robert, a cabaret) and immediately resold them in a short time.
