Ok with the Atari thread doing well I thought I’d ask about what Commodore's you guys own..:)

What commodore computers do you own and which is your favorite and why?

Mine has to be the C64 just because its popularity doesn’t seem to be waning and still has a very strong following today and it was my first proper computer back in the early 80’s (very close second the Amiga1200)

My collection:-

Commodore VIC-20 x 4pcs 1 MIB
Commodore 64 (bread bin) x 4pcs 1 MIB 1 BNIB
Commodore 64C x 2pcs 1 x NIB
Commodore 16 MIB
Commodore Plus4 MIB
Amiga 500
Amiga 500+ MIB
Amiga 600 x 4pcs
Amiga 1200HD x 5pcs 2 x MIB, 2 x with 4mb, 1 with CF Hard drive
Amiga CD32
1541 x 3pc 1 x BNIB
C2N or simular x 8pcs 4 MIB


Cheers...

All computers are PAL and loose unless otherwise stated.

Computers
1x VIC-20 "two-prong" (boxed)
2x VIC-20CR (one NTSC, one PAL)
1x C64 "breadbox" (boxed)
3x C64C (one boxed, two loose)
1x SX-64 (NTSC)
1x C128 (boxed)
1x C128D (not sure if it is D or DCR.. still a bit confused)
1x TED prototype motherboard (broken)
1x PET 3032
1x PET 4032
1x PET 8032-SK
1x CBM-II 610/256K (logically 620 but not labeled as such)
1x CBM-II B500 (predecessor to the 610, quite similar)
1x CBM-II 710/128K
1x Amiga 1200 (boxed)

Drives and other notable peripherals
2x 1541-II (one boxed, one loose)
1x 2031
1x 8250
1x 8250LP
1x Corvus IEEE hard drive system (6 MB)
a handful of 1530/1531 tape recorders
a pile of broken 3040/4040 drives.. dunno if you count garbage?

Well, plus some other bits and pieces like cartridge expanders and custom cartridges, 3rd party external floppy drives to the Amiga, modern storage devices like the uIEC.

From the list above, you may notice on purpose I have not picked up any working Commodore 16 or Plus/4 computer, basically because I disregard them as dead ends in the history of Commodore. Bil Herd is a cool guy though, and the TED prototype may be one of the most valuable pieces in my collection despite being non-functional.

My favorite Commodore obviously is the VIC-20. It was my first computer, then I spent many years on the C64 but returned to the VIC in the mid 1990s and haven't regretted it a bit.

Hi carlsson,

Wow! most impressive.

I thought before I joined here I had a large collection but you guys have awesome collections.

Re: VIC20 This was my first ever computer too. I bought it back in (I think) 1980 but couldn’t afford much software for it. Still holds a very special place in my youth though.:)

Amiga 4000

And then there's the absolute shitload of peripherals that I have laying around.

My favourite? I don't really know, never was much of a Commodoreguy. The Plus4 is nice since it's quite a bizarre machine, not useful for much though. The C16 is cool because it's black :). I'd probably have to say the C64 though since it's the one I've played around with the most.

Ok,

A very modest Commodore collection compared to some here

1 x 3032 Pet (now living thanks to Carlsson and others on this forum)
1 x Vic 20
1 x C64
1 x C64c with 1541-II drive
1x SX-64 portable
1 x Amiga 500 (1MB)

The 3032 would have to be the favourite. Such a cool, retro looking case and the green screen and all. The SX is really something too.

Hi,

1x VIC-20 (boxed)
1x C64 "breadbox"
1x PET 3008 (not currently working but thanks to carlsson and cosam could be fighting fit soon).


With only 3 commodores I feel somewhat inadequate but I am looking for a Amiga 500.

Olds-kool: The VIC-1001 was released in Japan in the second half of 1980, the VIC-20 introduced on CES January 1981 and released later that year. I think the majority of sales were in the first half of 1982. I don't own a VIC-1001 much because I think they're way too expensive compared to what you get.

You’re probably correct but I did not buy it through normal distribution outlets.:cool:

My VIC-20 came from a computer show held at The Barbican Centre here in the UK it was the last day or so and some of the companies were selling their stuff off.

I’m sure it was either 80 or 81 it’s hard to remember as I was only around 10 years old. It must have been a very early model because there weren’t in the shops at that time...

I don’t know what happened to it my mum probably threw it out 25 years ago!. I wish I kept it now :(

Another fine collection of computers.:)

And you say you’re not much of a Commodore guy!

I think it’s safe to say you are an "Uber collector"

Agreed about the C64, its popularity is extremely strong today. Not bad for a computer that’s over 27 years old.

My collection is also a lot smaller than some of the ones that have been listed, but I'm happy with it all the same.

CPUs:
1x PET 4032 "Fat 40" (mystery function ROM included... some day I will figure out what it's for)
1x SX-64 (first computer ever, dad bought it for the family in 1984)
2x C64c
2x C128, both with 64k VRAM mod

Drives:
1x Blue Chip 128
1x 1541-II
1x MSD-1 single drive (works with both IEEE-488 and IEC)
2x 1571
2x 1581 — newly acquired, dunno yet whether they work

Peripherals:
1x 1902A monitor
1x mystery Amiga-badged monitor
2x Koala Pad (no styluses) — am working on a GEOS driver to use these as trackpads, though having two is overkill and I'll probably get rid of one
1x 1351 mouse (works great!)
1x 1670 1200 baud modem
misc. joysticks

Got an MPS-803 printer too but I'll probably get rid of it... no source for paper or ink and they're apparently not very good anyway.

Also got JiffyDOS on about half the units, with parts to do the rest (except for the Blue Chip 128, that one's only available from Maurice Randall and we all know how likely that isn't).

Wow, that was a longer list than I thought it would be.

Wish list:
dual PET drive, preferably (as long as I am only wishing, I don't have the budget) one of the 8" or quad density 5¼" ones — I almost got a 2040 this week, but I ran out of time to pay for it. Might get another chance though, if no one else buys it off my benefactor before I can get back to him.
PET hard drive (hey, may as well dream BIG if I'm dreaming at all)
µIEC unit from Jim Brain
C2N232 (I think that's what they're called — goes on the tape port and connects to a PC serial port)

gsteemso
April 8th, 2009, 08:02 AM
Forgot to list my favourite. Am split between C128 (most flexible and fun to program), SX-64 (nostalgia value), and PET Fat 40 (most "novel" to modern sensibilities, and I'm guessing most interesting to hardware-mod).

April 8th, 2009, 08:28 AM
Yeah, it's funny to see how large others collections are vs your own. I always feel dwarfed, but then again you have some of the top folks here collecting specifics so it's just good to know the stuff is out there and being preserved.

(3) CBM Kim-1 (can I count those? ;-) ).. don't remember enough about them to remember the revs off the top of my head.
CBM PET 8032
Vic-20
Commodore 64
Commodore 64C
Commodore 16
Commodore 128
Commodore Plus/4
Commodore 128D
Commodore sx64
Commodore PC-10 (10 or 20 I can't remember)
Amiga 1000
Amiga 500
Amiga 2000
Amiga 2000HD
Amiga 2500
Amiga 3000 (D)
Amiga 3000 (T)
Amiga 1200

Think that's it..lol I remembered a few seeing other peoples lists though. How sad is that?

My favorite? geez.. hm.. I really like the Amiga 2000 since it was the one I gamed on the most. sx64 would be a good second though, I mean first color portable computer and it's compatible with c64 cartridges/floppies, etc. That's a pretty awesome system.

Man, my little collection certainly doesn't compare.

Amiga 500

Commodore 128D (missing keyboard)

and just to bulk up my collection, I've got a couple of old Commodore LED calculators and a digital watch :)

1x C128D (not sure if it is D or DCR.. still a bit confused)If the case is plastic it should be a 128D, if it's metal then i should be a 128DCR. But the easiest way to determine is to open it up an see. If it has the disk drive's controller on a separate board it's a 128D, if all is on one board it's the DCR...

Of course you can :-) , it's a single-board computer.
I own six of them, but still missing revision C and E.
I saw a revision E on the German epay a while ago, but it went for more than 600 Euro's -a LITTLE too rich for me-

April 8th, 2009, 12:21 PM
I was joking about them being MOS ;-) I tried a bit to get a good collection of Commodore since I do like them and we still have an Amiga group here in town, but you know the whole collector problem with never having enough or never truly being complete. Then of course a friend Bo is here in town too (http://zimmers.net) so it makes my feeble attempts kinda useless lol

Though I like that he dedicated his collecting to one company. Certainly gets you closer to happiness than myself starting with anything. Though I like to think I have a lot of historically significant "firsts" atleast in the collection.

It's not as big as it used to be...

1 known working C-64 (and a bunch of broken ones)
1 C-128

Peripherals and stuff:

1 tape drive
2 1541 Floppy Drives
1 1541-II Floppy Drive
1 Printer (not sure what kind, but it's nice and small)
2 monitors (don't ask me what kind, they're in the garage right now)
1 home made XE-1541 Cable
1 Commodore mouse (I'm pretty sure I still have it)
1 Commodore B+W Scanner for Amiga (and I don't own an Amiga)

Used to own:

Vic-20
CBM with giant dual floppy drive
2 C-16s
1 Commodore mousepad
1 Commodore typewriter

I also own a genuine Commodore calculator and an unused Commodore notepad. I'm a fanboy :D

1 1/2 2001 PETs
1 8032
2 8050
1 MTU Visible memory graphic expansion board for PET
Misc. stuff for PET: ROM expanders, speech board, EPROM programmer, custom cables etc.

CPUs:
1x PET 4032 "Fat 40" (mystery function ROM included... some day I will figure out what it's for)
Can you dump it, or at least peek the first few locations? Maybe we can figure out what it is.
Have you tried SYS36864 or 40960?

I'm sort of interested in compiling a list of all the optional ROMs out there.


Got an MPS-803 printer too but I'll probably get rid of it... no source for paper or ink and they're apparently not very good anyway.
Well, you probably won't find it at your local office supply house, but 8 1/2 x 11 continuous paper is still available and you can either reink the ribbons or reload it with a more available one.

Yes, it would be interesting to know what it does. One way would be to dump it in ASCII and see if you pick up any recognisable words, screen titles etc.

Wish list:
dual PET drive, preferably one of the 8" or quad density 5¼" ones
The 5.25" 8050 and 8250 drives are not too uncommon, they're just heavy. The 8" drives however are a whole mouthful of hen's teeth and you should be extremely lucky if you ever see one, much less get to buy one. I suppose if either of the 8" PET drives appear on eBay, it will go REALLY high.


PET hard drive (hey, may as well dream BIG if I'm dreaming at all)
µIEC unit from Jim Brain
C2N232 (I think that's what they're called — goes on the tape port and connects to a PC serial port)
Soon all these three may be solved in one wish, as Jim for the next run of uIEC devices considers both IEEE support and possibly optional C2N232 instead of just a dull cassette port connector. You may not consider the uIEC a hard drive but feature wise it comes very close.

The Commodore 9060 and 9090 hard drives however do exist. They are quite rare, far less common than a 8050/8250 but much more common than a 8" floppy drive. They use Tandon ST-506 type drives that appear to often go bad, and although you can replace those with Seagates of higher (unused) capacity, today I would consider the 9000 series HDDs just a collector's item.

1x A500
1x A600HD

And some peripherals:
4x 1530, 1 in box
1x 1541-II in box
1x Printer, don't remember what it's called, I just got it last week

And of course the necessary joysticks and so on.. I got a set of NOS wireless joysticks (with big antennas), manufactured in 1982 iirc. Not made by Commodore but a cool thing to have anyway :) Haven't used them yet, the "base station" uses 110V and I don't have an adapter. The joysticks themselves need 2 9 Volt batteries each ;)

Yeah they do stack up :) Ah, nice to know that it is a 2001, I'm not that into Commodore so I wasn't sure but checked out old-computers.com and thought it looked like a 2001. It doesn't seem to work 100% though, lots of crap on the screen when you boot it up.

Micom: I think the different shades of grey brown is more a matter of manufacture date and miscolouration than a change of specs. There are a few different motherboard revisions before the C64C model but other than cost reduction nothing really changed.

Marko Mäkelä on the cbm-hackers mailing list just mentioned some C64s are "$DE00 clean" which means the unconnected address space at $DE00-$DFFF on some C64s echo back the last bus/accumulator content without getting random noise into the data. Whether this was a feature or a random factor in production, I don't know. Also I'm not sure if a small difference like this can be found within the set of "breadboxes" or if it would be a change if the C64C models.

:'-( That sucks but having an Amiga 3000T from a friend who was an Amiga salesman I can understand why you may not feel like a hernia trying to move it heh. Everyone used to say they weighed like they were made of granite so he eventually sprayed some grey rhino coating on it so it looks like a big stone.

Was a sweet system though. He has a munged up copy (tv station didn't convert the audio for most of the interesting part) when he was on a local tv station demoing off the computer. He had about every drive you could in there (5.25, 3.5, syquest/zip (don't remember which), cdrom, back-up tape drive. Then had an emulator card in there so while he was loading Dpaint for a demo and doing something else he switched over to a new window and ran Windows 3.0 and loaded solitaire and I think paint or something and then windowed it and put it in the background while he returned to his Amiga animation demo.

It was great lol. er.. totally forgot why I commented. Let us know here if you do post it there or in this marketplace. That'll help ensure it goes to a good home.

first time my friend found one at the local dump along with joystick and Last Ninja Remix cart, but he wanted more cash for it then i had in my wallet so i decided to wait abit and buy it later, forgot all about it for like 6 months, and it ended up sold to some other guy. second chance was with the same friend when he bought a CIB from some auction site (to use as a hostage in some deal with me with some Nintendo stuff we had going) but it never happened so we decided to wait on it until i got the cash to buy it from him but then suddenly some 2-3 weeks after he got the urge for a Yamaha motorcycle so he sold this C64GS too.

its simply destiny that i should never own one of those. :(

Honestly, I'm not sure Commodore mgmt did neither. If they really had wanted to counter the again successful video games, they probably should have looked at a way to drastically cut costs in the Amiga (500). Perhaps not made it cartridge based, but a slimmed down unit with 512K, floppy drive but no keyboard or expansion options. It just might have worked.

The fun part is that both Atari (XEGS) and Amstrad (GX-4000) also repackaged somewhat aged 8-bit computers as video game systems. I think all three fared just as bad.

Got an MPS-803 printer too but I'll probably get rid of it... no source for paper or ink and they're apparently not very good anyway.



Don't get rid of it. You can still find ribbons for the MPS-803 all over the internet. They run about $5 USD.

As for paper, regular old 8.5x11 works just fine since the MPS 803 was friction-feed.

Yeah, its slow and it sucks, but in 1983 it was Awesome...

You’ve got some really nice Commodore’s there..

I wish I had some of the higher end machines but they don’t come up to often here in the UK and when they do they aren’t cheap. I’d settle for a processor card for my A1200, if they didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Still it’s nice to see how the other half live.:)

I snagged my Amiga gear years ago when it was much cheaper, would not pay current prices for what I have these days and there is NONE locally outside of the C64s you tend to trip over on the street.

I wish I had started collecting IBM XT's years ago when they were around and worthless.

Win some and lose some.

Took a while to gather them all
Most are bought outside Sweden since the prices here are ridiculous...but itäs far easier getting rare Amiga items here than vintage PC parts...even vintage PC games are very hard to come buy...I think it's mostly because of effective recycling and people here didn't so much respect for PC's when they were getting old and not being of any use

I will never be a collector at this rate! After browsing through this post I see why - you guys are hoarding all the good stuff!
Seriously, some really nice collections to be proud of, that's for sure :)

My meager holdings in Commodore are:

1 - VIC-20
1 - C-128
1 - Plus/4

Commodore peripherals to keep things humming.
Decent collection of Commodore specific magazines, disks and books from the 80's.

Back in time I once owned a C-16, and spent many years with a C-64. Those are long gone, but my current units fulfill those slots nicely.

I foolishly gave away (to Goodwill), an Amiga 600, but then I was never a big Amiga fan - but I bought it brand new on sale, cheap, back when they were trying to dump them.

As with a few others here, Commodore was my first two systems (vic-20, then C64) so they're still my favourites :)

vic-20 (several, a couple boxed)
C64 (several colours, models, a couple boxed)
C128 (a couple, one boxed)
C16 (one boxed)
C +4 (one boxed, one not)
Amiga 500
Amiga 2500 (toaster card etc)
Amiga 4000
PC-20
1701 monitor
1702 monitor (several)
1084 monitor
1084s monitor
CM-141 monitor
1902 monitor
Datasettes (several)

1541-II (a couple)
1541 (several colours, etc)
1581
SFD 1001

Fair number of carts, other peripherals, and a couple printers. I have a pretty decent collection of boxed software, especially the old educational stuff put out by Commodore (the cassettes in the coloured binders, lol) and a few others, courtesy of a really good find a few years ago. I have never had much luck finding PET stuff here though. I could have gone afield more for it I guess, but you know how the money starts to flow for shipping...

I'd still love to get a C128D, those have eluded me thus far :)

1 1541 (I cant remember what's wrong with it)
1 Hacked C64 DTV computer (based on Jeri Ellsworth's 30-in-1 game system. Has some issues booting correctly)

Non-functioning stuff; scrapped for parts:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1 C64 (I dropped a screwdriver on a voltage regulator. Short circuited the whole damn thing. Some chips were salvaged)
1 1541 (totally non-functioning. Torn apart for the chips & case)

Do you like that 1802?

CommodoreKid
May 1st, 2009, 09:15 PM
Do you like that 1802?

Oh, very yes (lawl). I got it when I bought the machine when I was 14. It has 3 sets of inputs: monochrome, standard av (mono sound), and commodore composite (luma, chroma, audio). Great monitor- its good for more than just using a C64 or VIC20; You can attach game systems, as long as they dont use a coaxial cable for output.

Mine is missing the front door that covers the input switch, color and tint adjustments, and volume control. But I kinda like the imperfection.

If I didn't receive the monitor when I bought that first C64, I would have had NO idea how to connect it to a TV, and my parents would not have been happy if I tried that (they fought me tooth and nail when I decided to buy the whole setup).

Unknown_K
May 2nd, 2009, 12:21 AM
The commodore composite is the same as s-video, they just break the chroma and luma into 2 RCA jacks instead of using the normal Svideo plug. You can buy cables that have svideo on one end and the 2 RCA jacks on the other for connecting equipment to the 1802.

I have two of the 1802's and one is missing the cover like yours. Both work and were given to me free with some C64 gear from freecycle. I kind of wanted a 1702 since I think they looked better, or better yet another Amiga compatible 1080 or 1084 but they were better then nothing.

A monitor is better then a TV for a C64, hope you have the good c64 video cable and not the regular composite one.

Yes, Cedar Rapids, IA, USA

The 264 and the first C65 were personal gifts from CMD, when they took over a CBM liquidated warehouse. They were given on the premise I would take them to shows and demonstrate them.

The second 65 was serendipity. It was part of a large stash I picked up in WI a few years back.

PET 2001-8N (standard keyboard, PETSCII key markings, no cassette)
VIC-20
C64
C64C
SX-64
Plus/4
C16
C128
C128DCR
Amiga 600HD

All are working, except the SX-64 is a bit intermittent. Might need repair at some point.

My favorite? Man, that's hard to say. The VIC-20 was the first computer I ever owned (not the one I have, but the model). I love the PET for nostalgia, as I used a 2001 in high school for programming class. The C64 made me quite a bit of money in my retail days. :p As someone mentioned, the C16 has a cool color.

But on balance, the C128DCR is probably my favorite, because it's 3 machines in one, and among the last of the great 8-bit systems. I'm also a CP/M enthusiast, so that's a plus.

Cheers!

well, I already hat around 15 PET 2001 (with chicklet keyboard) and I sold some.. I do restoration of these machines.. I'm specialized to repair PET 2001, SX-64 and Apple Lisas.. often I buy broken PET 2001 and put from 2 one working machine together...
sadly there is a little distance between here and Texas..I come from Austria/Europe ;-)

I have PETs 2001 in all variations: with white tape recorder, black one, with blue frame / black frame, blue label / black label and all variations also with the early PET motherboards.. so I only have 2 or 3 machines that are the same.

I always try to find collectors for trading / exchanging stuff.. but there are not so many around who have what I'm searching for..

Please give us some examples of what you would be looking for in your Commodore collection. Prototypes? Special editions? Localized versions? 3rd party upgraded machines? I can't help but wonder if the Japanese C64 is among those 15x C64's and if there is at least one VIC-1001 among the 5x VIC-20's.

Is the CBM 510 rather a B500? I suppose P500 is much less common as it pretty much never got released.

I would seriously like to know where you guys manage to store all this stuff :confused:

I have a modest collection of Commodore stuff and around 45 machines from various manufacturers and I'm struggling for space !

Anyway here goes

Very small collection, but these have always been in my "protected" list (from reselling):

SX-64
Amiga 1000 with Commodore 2002 monitor, 256k expansion + Microbotics 2MB (2.5 MB total)
Amiga 500 with 1MB (although the 512k expansion is a bit suspect). It is somewhat dismantled, since I never really put screws back on after installing a 68010 a while ago.
*Had* a minty Commodore 128D, boxed (including original Toys 'R Us receipt), that was stolen during one of my moves. Ironically, they didn't steal the keyboard because I had it in a separate box, so I still have it somewhere (although it got a small nick during that same move).

October 10th, 2010, 04:07 PM
Vic-20
Plus/4, boxed/complete
SX-64
C64, boxed/complete/receipt (have about 10 other spares bought at flea markets for $1-5 apiece some years back)
C64 slim, boxed/receipt
C128
Amiga 2000 x 3 with various expansions including GVP 030, A2320 Flicker Fixer, etc.
Amiga 500 x 2, original/boxed, one with GVP A500+, both with Microbotics 512kb/RTC expansion
Amiga 1200 with trapdoor Microbotics 68030 + 64mb Expansion

various boxed hardware/software, including most of the various 1541 models, a 1571, 1581, etc... also a few flavors of the 1084S monitor

Still looking for a multisync C= monitor, but that's probably a pipe dream (at least for prices I'm willing to pay)

I'm no collector, I've just got a breadbox C64 from 1982 or so, rebuilt in a 1987 C64C case, the VIC-II chip is from the C64C since the original was faulty from the start (sprite 7 didn't work) and the keyboard was dead), an Amiga 500 with the standard 512k RAM addon, external disk drive no longer works, internal once replaced with an Amiga 2000 drive (it has the light, so it lights up inside out). I still like the reset button I soldered to my C64 (the C64C is just the shell and keyboard, the motherboard is still the old 1982 one). There's a little hole in the side for the cord for the big red button that says "don't press this button."

I did notice some Commodore branded DVD-Rs a few years back, don't know if they were legimate, but had to buy some just for the nice white Commodore DVD cases. Of course they hold Commodore software collections now. Commodore sells, but who's buying? :D

Boxes? Naah, I use 'em! Most of these are working and I occasionaly bring up Space Invaders on the 3032 - if only I had a version to run on the 8032SK...

My favourite is clearly the 2001. This was my first computer I got back in 1982. I tought myself programming and how to interface to hardware. I never forgot the day it arrived (pre-owned of course) and I spent all night typing in a program (think it was some kind of file register) that I had written down on paper earlier.

The only think I'd wish I had in the list is the SX-64

Check Zimmers in PET > Games > English. It has at least two different (?) Space Invaders for the 2001N/3000 series.

KalleAnka - I suppose you live in Sweden. I have a NTSC SX-64 for sale this weekend, if you happen to be in Stockholm and will attend Retrogather Winter Games Edition at Tekniska museet. In case I don't get it sold, I'll send you a PM at the beginning of next week if you would like to buy one.

Sorry, it should read "Commodore LED calculator" of course. Yes I live in Sweden, just recently moved to Marsta - and will be waiting for next offer of SX-64 ;)

I'll check out Zimmers again but I don't think there is a Space Invaders version that runs on the 8032 series... I do hope someone can prove me wrong.

I own:

Vic-20
C64
C128
Amiga 1000
Amiga 500 (3)
Amiga 2000HD
Amiga 3000
Amiga 4000

My favourite is definitely my A500 with 2MB Chip and Viper 520 accelerator. It's the fastest Amiga I own. My 16MHz A3000 comes second. It's half the speed of the A500. The A3000 has VGA out and USB, but it's still not as nice as the A500. (slower boot, noisy fan, big and boxy)

I also have a big Commodore brand desk. The previous owners of my house left it because it was too big to move. I only noticed it was a Commodore after I put my Commodore computers on it. It was a weird coincidence.

The first computer I ever saw in real life was a Commodore PET 4032 in 1981.

Small screen 4032. It appears to have an eprom burner in it too.
Of course I like most people used to have a C64 too, but I don't know what became of it.

I used to have

Pet 3032 ( I think, not really sure, had 4k and the larger screen)
C64 Breadbox with Floppy Drive, two carts, and a 1702 ( still have the 1702)
C64c
C128
SX-64

However due to down sizing all I have left are the various part machines I used to maintain them. The "Computer Graveyard" as I call it is in a building no other family member cares about that's on my property, so it wasn't touched when I moved away for a year, aside from being vandalized. Several Monitors, a 486 Server, and a TRS 80 III were target practice, and a few of the Commodores were tossed through the windows. My Fully Restored XT, Second TRS-80 III, and TRS-80 IV were victims of the elements being let in from the busted windows. However Several Mac Pluses, an Apple IIc, A IIe, and two Atari 800xls have been tested and seemed to have survived.

I plan to restore a C64c and possibly a C64 from the remaining parts hulks pretty soon. Since there were the few other machines listed above that survived, I figured the seemingly resilient C64s might also be salvageable. Found at least three in decent shape, plus various busted keyboard ones that might have good motherboards or chips. I also found one remaining floppy cable and several Disk Drives. There's also a Coleco Adam that seems too far gone for me to restore, but might be good for parts for someone else restoring one.

Wow, super-zombie-thread!

Just for the heck of it, my collection:

PET 4032, 9" screen, metal case, Basic 4.0, works perfectly and cosmetically... maybe 8 out of 10? Pretty nice, really.
PET 4016, 12" screen/CRTC, low profile plastic, Basic 4.0, works perfectly, cosmetically, what, 3, 4? (No actual damage to the case plastics or keyboard other than some scratches and an engraving, but the name sticker is badly damaged.)
PET 2001, chicklet keyboard, Basic 2.0 in a "Dynamic Pet" Motherboard, works but needs some fiddling, cosmetically somewhere around a 6? (surface rust on top of the paint but the sticker is good.)
PET 8032, low profile, Basic 4.0, currently a doorstop, cosmetically about as bad as the 4016. (Less scratches but the sticker is missing entirely.)

One of these days I may need to thin the herd a bit. How many PETs can one person have?

January 18th, 2012, 02:50 PM
There's always someone that'll have more than you'd think (*cough* Zimmerman (http://www.main.org/ctacs/history/2005/20050718/20050718.html)). So really, it's always ok to have too many Pets. BTW, just for folks who want to know he has most of his stuff set up not boxed and regularly warms them up and plays. You should see the 128 he has hosting a MUDD .. or .. at least he had it up when I was there last.

I'll check out Zimmers again but I don't think there is a Space Invaders version that runs on the 8032 series... I do hope someone can prove me wrong.

If you are looking for an 80 column version, you may be right, but I have a version of Space Invaders that runs on a Model 8032, but needs to run a program called CBM4032 first which sets the 8032 into a 40 column screen. When you are finished playing, a SYS 64790 or a power cycle will perform a system reset to normal 80 columns. Send me a note on the PM system and I'll send the files to you.

Think that's it. A few are boxed/complete. The plan will be to sell off the extra 2000's, maybe an extra 500, maybe the 4000T. Probably a few of the spare C64's (once made into systems - they're pulling a nice amount on fleabay right now).

CommodoreUser, what commodores do you have? Do you use any current Amiga gear or just retro? (I could probably snoop around on other boards but thought I'd ask). I'm .. well.. not a very good member lately but a member of our local CTACS which is an Amiga user group here in Austin. Most of us are past Amiga users but we do have George who's fighting the good fight and I think waiting on his new x1000 to come in soon.

I have an original PET with blue bezzel but I did not have it at the time the poster was published. If I was to make the poster again I would swap out the 2001 that's in the poster with the blue bezzel embedded cassette version.

I left out the SuperPet too which if I was to do this again would have swapped with the VC20.

Does anyone have the VIC-21? I don't recall seeing anyone post this system in their replies.

Wasn't VIC-21 just a marketing bundle ploy, consisting of a VIC-20 and a 16K VIC-1111 cartridge? AFAIK the extra RAM never was mounted inside the computer, nor did the computer have a custom label.

billdeg
February 25th, 2012, 06:51 AM
Yes. But they are pretty rare from a collector's standpoint. The box is rare, and the name plate on the system were trimmed to just read "VIC" without the 20.

There's always someone that'll have more than you'd think (*cough* Zimmerman (http://www.main.org/ctacs/history/2005/20050718/20050718.html)). So really, it's always ok to have too many Pets. BTW, just for folks who want to know he has most of his stuff set up not boxed and regularly warms them up and plays. You should see the 128 he has hosting a MUDD .. or .. at least he had it up when I was there last.

Everyone needs a PET or 23 to come home to. The blinking READY prompt makes a house a home, and they don't eat much.

And it's true they all get their due attention. I call their little area of my lab the "PETting Zoo". At the moment I have an SuperPET upgrade project I'm working on, and I just finished archiving a bunch of olde PET cassettes I came into, which always takes forever because I have to "test" each game thoroughly. :)

But alas, the BBS you mentioned is no more -- it's been down since 1997 or so. If the COMET+ is ever produced again, I've been thinking I might put one back up .. though doing it that way would almost be cheating compared to the horror that setting up the first one was. :)

I've owned most of the Commodore line at some point or another. My first computer was a Vic-20 so like others here, it holds a special place in my heart and was the cause of many of my 'firsts' in computing.

Currently I have the following:
Pet 4032-12 (dead)
Commodore 64 (black screen)
Commodore 128
Commodore SX-64
Amiga 2000
Amiga 3000
I also have many disk drives (1541, 1541-II, 1571, 1581), a MPS-803 (ugh) printer and a rather nice SD-IEC drive. I would have to say that the Commodore 128 is probably my favourite Commodore machine. For some reason, I also really liked the Plus/4 back in the day when I had one with a 1551 drive a word processing cartridge.

I know the feeling when you are trying to get that one computer you really want as they say patience is a virtue.

Regarding the 386SX-LT are they rare in the US? Also what was the last commodore laptop the F6000T?
