    My other hobby after the Camaro is collecting and restoreing old video games. I mostly look for games from the 80s. Currently I own Lunar Lander, Spy Hunter, Space Invaders, BattleZone, and Tempest. I regularly go the auctions in Winston-Salem and Knoxville. If anyone is interested in going to one of these auctions let me know. Its free and all the games are set on free play. Other things at the auctions you will see are pool tables, crane games, air hockey tables, bar equipment, go-carts, pinball machines, and kiddie rides.

    There is a auction this Sat. in Knoxville if anyone wants to go.. Just visit www.auctiongamesales.com for dates and locations. Its fun to go even if you don't buy anything.

    Later!

    I'm not talking about kiddie stuff like home consoles.

    I'm talking about this:

    What I do is use my skills with electronics to repair these old games and then after awhile turn around and put it up on E-bay or in the local trader paper. Its a hobby that I enjoy.

    I like women cars and guns also. But this thread isn't about that stuff now is it?

    Well I'm going to try and make the January auction in Knoxville TN. Anyone interested in going can contact me. I will have a better road trip vehicle by then. Maybe a carpool and split gas money. It costs nothing to attend the auction and I see guys with their families there. Its a reall kick to see that younger kids are discovering these old games...and even funnier that they enjoy them!
