  1. #1

    Default Less than 2 weeks to the April 27-28 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show!

    Time marches on, and the April 27-28 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show (CLASS) will soon be here! Come and celebrate Commodore and Amiga computers with us at this inaugural event at

    Toolbox LA
    9410 Owensmouth Avenue
    Chatsworth, California 91311
    Admission: $25 for one day or both days
    Times: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day

    We'll have plenty of computers for attendees to see and use, items for people to buy, and prizes for the public to win or receive for free!

    If you miss CLASS, you still have a chance to go to a Commodore/Amiga event by attending one of our sister shows -- the June 8-9 Pacific Commodore Expo NW in Seattle, Washington or the August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo v15 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    For more information on any of the shows, see the links below.

    Just a few days before this Friday's set-up time... in the afternoon at Toolbox LA on 9410 Owensmouth Ave. in Chatsworth. Then there is Saturday morning set-up before the 11 a.m. start of the show.

    Considering this is about 15 minutes from me, I will definitely try to make this and sucker a retro friend as well. I didn't see anything at the main site about getting tickets there, so i'm assuming it's pay at the door?

    Anyway, looking forward to it.

    Right. Debbie at the door will take your attendance fee.
    Anyway, looking forward to it.
    Glad that you are making it. Since this is the first CLASS, we don't know how many people will show up.

    Robert,

    Enjoyed the show and was super excited to win the PET 4032 in the Raffle. I've cleaned it up and resoldered joints on the CRT Analog board due to the flickering display. Some of the keys didn't work so i took that apart, cleaned it and added fresh silver conductor to the pads so the keyboard is working perfect now. Found the bad RAM. I have it piggybacked for now with some ram I had on my Apple II+ until a new Ram Chip comes in.

    Anyway, thanks Again!

    Yow, you were the right person to win the system! You diagnosed the problems and fixed them quickly! You can now add the PET 4032 to your Working Systems in your signature.
    Anyway, thanks Again!
    Thank you for coming to CLASS! I'm aiming to have the second annual show on April 25-26, 2020. I'll see you there, if not sooner at a SCCAN meeting.

    Hey RoberB,

    As you seem to be a Commodore history buff, I am hoping that you might be able to help me find something. I am looking for the last 7 cassette tapes of the Cursor Magazine set.
    I have 1 - 23 and I have created and uploaded videos, of all of their animated covers. However I would like to find the last 7 tapes, so that I can document the entire set on Youtube.

    Oh, I don't have those. Sorry about that.

    If you run into someone with a small tape library, please keep your eyes open, for some Cursor Magazine tapes.
    Or if you run into someone else who is interested in recording this series as well, we can work together, to preserve
    this little bit of Commodore history.

    Here is a video of something I think you might like.
