Sega Outrun from Pole Position – arcade games

I was planning on adding a Pole Position to my game room and started looking for one. Then one day I found an old operator that had both a Pole Position and also a Sega Outrun. Well I thought I wanted a Pole Position as that’s what I played in the early 80’s. But when he told me he also had a Sega Out Run for about $50 more, it made start to think. So to refresh my memory, I started to play both again in MAME. It didn’t take me long to realize that Outrun was more fun. I went to check out the Outrun, but the screen had a strange green look to it. I figure it’s just some setting or adjustment and bought it. Later I found out it was NOT just a simple adjustment.. More on that later…
