Coincidentally: “Roadkill NES” found on the side of the Texas Freeway, back in working order


You sure don’t do them like you used to do, do you? Well, that’s certainly the case when it comes to that poor, unloved NES that was rescued from a Texas freeway.

Spotted by Rob Ivy (AKA: The Obsolete Geek), the NES had apparently been abandoned, and despite Ivy’s helpful social media location of the console’s location, it stayed there until he decided to pick it up himself and drop it off with his buddy The 8 -Bit guy who decided he was Power can save it.

Amazingly, he was right! While the console refused to boot at the first request and the HF shield was bent inside, it was – with a little TLC – brought back to working condition. In fact, The 8-Bit Guy goes so far as to clean the battered and cracked case and to repair the “feet” on the underside. The end result is an NES that can bring joy for many years to come.

Remember, kids – an NES is for life, not just Christmas (1986).
