My Vintage Arcade Machine
Back in 1980 I played for the first time the amazing game Pac-Man.
It was on our way to Spain in a cafeteria where I ate my first blue ghosts.
After having them eaten the hunger continued.
Luckily there was a machine too on Camping Mas Nou in Empuriabrava so I spent a lot of 25 Pesetas coins that holiday.
That’s the reason why this page is called 25PTAS.com – a nostalgic feeling when inserting that 25 Pesetas coin into the machine.
The arcade experience became a part of my life, like making music with MIDI-machines. Collecting some arcade related items, using arcade in my music videos for my YT-channel, going as an arcade machine with carnaval and having tattoos from Pac-man ghost, Space Invaders, Bubble & Bobble and Donkey Kong.
During the years I kept on dreaming of owning my own arcade machine and this year (2021) I found a cheap cabinet which I’ve transformed into a working unit. Down below you can see all the pictures of the restoration of the arcade machine.
Most important is that it works on coins of 25 Pesetas to relive that magical moment.
