- TECHNICAL -
[Highway sitdown model]
From Dave Shepperd : "The game was designed to fit in an upright cabinet and it sold very well in that configuration. Later, our ID manager thought to fit it into the left over Atari Highway sitdown cabinets of which we may have had a few dozen or maybe a few hundred stuck in a warehouse somewhere. It also sold very well in that configuration. I understand kits were made to retro-fit Atari Highway cabinets already in the field and those sold well too".
- TRIVIA -
Night Driver was released in October 1976.
Also released as "Night Driver [Upright model]".
