Me too!
Got a good collection of old machines and fire them up regularly.
The old games are the best, a lot harder too :-)

Sweet, man...
Never owned an arcade cabinet, mate, but not through lack of trying.
My idea of a home arcade, with cabinets right down the hallway, isn't the same idea as my wife's, lol!!

I remember in about 1991 Bright Spot in New Brighton chucked out their Star Wars cabinet (the sit down one), I remember seeing it in a skip outside. My mate nicked the speaker out of it.

I've managed to get my hands on a Neo Geo AES with Metal Slug 1 & 2, King Of Fighters and Neo Turf Golf.
the cartridges used for this thing are HUGE (about 4 times the size of a SNES Cart, twice the thickness of the NES Cart) and they come with huge prices for the games (from £300 up to £1000) so with some documentation from MAME and MESS
i'm attempting to grab a cheap Neo Geo Cart, write up a ROM Loader in Z80 BASIC (since it uses both a Zilog Z80 And a Motorola 68000 as it's main CPU) then flash that program onto a new ROM Chip, and then modify the cart itself to allow usage of Flash Media and a USB Port to stream games directly from a Storage device or a PC.
