    This is an Atari System 1 cabinet. It can have the control panel and daughter card swapped out to play 5 different games.
    Road Runner, Marble Madness, Peter Packrat, Indiana Jones and RoadBlasters.

    Ditto, truly inspirational stuff. If you ever do your thing to a 720 please hit me up. It's a long expensive trip across the coasts, but I'd strongly consider doing it considering the love you put into your restorations

    #17 2 years ago

    Roadblasters was one of my favs!- that updated artwork looks fantastic. Man I wish I lived near you to see these in person - you do such incredible work.

    #18 2 years ago

    Also a favorite of mine growing up. Excellent job

    #19 2 years ago

    720 would be pretty rad too work on, so many possibilities.

    Thanks!!

    I'll have about 1/2 of my games up and running soon. If your in SO CAL you're welcome anytime.

    Such a fun game right? I'm creating a custom sit down/cockpit version next.

    Minty fresh!

    Holy crap! These are the Mary Poppins of arcade games.

    Come on brother, I like Ataris side art. It looks so classic for its age. Yes a little boring but classic. Where can I get that marquee for roadblasters? Mine looks terrible, and the one I got from some random place on the Internet looks terrible also.

    #25 2 years ago

    And now for your viewing pleasure... All 5 system 1's in a row!

    IMG_4748 (resized).JPG
    #26 2 years ago

    Yeah, its not the WORST i guess Still i know Atari can do better, they made some incredible stuff during that stretch of game production.

    You talking the original marquee in that pic? It is NOS. Check it out next to what they usually look like.

    Yeah, I’m looking for an nos, or a really good repro

    #32 2 years ago

    Great work. Thank you for sharing.

    LTG : )

    #33 2 years ago

    Roadblasters! That got more than a few of my quarters back in the day. Awesome work!

    #34 2 years ago

    Another beauty, thanks. Fun game.

    Haven't played them all but the 5 system 1's in a row is awesome.

    #35 2 years ago

    Thanks! This was part of the "NEVER SELL" section of my game room. It will be missed, but a cockpit version will help to fill in the hole it leaves

    #36 2 years ago

    Ugh, i only have 1 NOS marquee left.. let me think about it.

    They're all really fun, it would be hard to rank them.

    MM has bad ass 2 player, simultaneous action. Its really difficult to master and i'm terribly at it.

    Road Runner is a blast too. The graphics and sound really takes me back to the time of watching RR cartoons after school.

    IMG_2588 (resized).JPGIMG_2592 (resized).JPGIMG_2593 (resized).JPG

    #40 2 years ago

    Then there's Peter Packrat. Super cool game and the rarest of the 5.

    #41 2 years ago

    man I played the shit out of some Roadblasters...nice work.

    Quoted from PACMAN:

    Road Runner is a blast too.

    If by 'blast' you mean 'the hardest goddamn game ever!'

    #42 2 years ago

    LOL! Well yeah, there's that. Its that wonky Atari Logo joystick, its so clunky. That same joystick is on Dragon Spirit and i swear it makes the game 20X harder.

    So cool, can’t believe you’re selling this one!
