I would, too, but my only fear would be people's damaging the machines or worrying about maintaining them. I bet most people aren't nearly as tender with these machines as people here would be!

Kudos indeed!

I too love what he's doing. I especially like how lovingly he obviously restored these games. It was also clever getting listed as a museum. Hell, I'd love to run something like that.

The man is a hero and he is willing to share his games as well. Wow!

Great! I had the pleasure of

Great! I had the pleasure of going to an exhibit like this in Chicago and had a great time. It's really fun to see "non-traditional gamers" enjoying games as much as their kids. These vintage games (product plug) have definitely stood the test of time! :P

Not much Death Race, but the guy is a hero!!!

Just a brief glimpse of the "Death Race" arcade game is provided. On the other hand, the guy who the news segment is about ("Brad" something or other) is totally cool! Providing all his old-school coin-op games to the museum in order to raise money for a good cause is priceless! When I grow up, I want to be just like him!!! :-)

This guy sounds like he's one of us. Death Race aside, the video is well worth watching.
