I received an email from someone looking for a good home for a 1976 Atari
Lemans game. I don't have room for it right now, I have to sell off stuff
myself, so I thought I'd see if anyone here who is local to the Seattle
area. The game is in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

Here is the description he sent me:
----------------------------------------------
I am a fellow old school game fan, I like all my game systems pre 96!
Anywise, I was writing about a potential project for you, I have a very old
school arcade, Lemans by Atari, I think it's from 79 or something, the game
(when working) is black and white and consists of you, a rectangle car with
4 square wheels racing around tracks made out of squares and dodging
rectangle oil slicks, awesome! Maybe you have heard of it. Well, I am
thinking of giving this game away, the cabinet is in ok condition, it needs
a new monitor I do believe, it appears to have burned out, it did not
receive the best of care, and is obviously old. The coin acceptor is
missing some parts and I think it needs new wiring to the brake or
accelerator (I don't know what it is, it never was connected as long as I
have had it, anyone who played the game just had to drive at break neck
speeds). To make a long story short, if you have any interest in taking
this project on, just let me know, I live in Mountlake Terrace just north
of Seattle
-------------------------------------------------------------

If you are seriously interested in this game, let me know and I'll get you
two in touch with each other.

Thanks!

Argh! I live in Mountlake Terrace also. I say Argh because like most
of us, I don't have room either. But how can you pass up on free?

Mike, I'd love to take a look at it to see whether I wouldn't mind
having it inside the house. I sent you an email to your address on
your web page, as Google isn't letting me choose to reply to author.

Thanks,
Tom
