My Original C64!






My original classic Commodore 64! At some point the A key stopped working and I purchased a Commodore 16 from Goodwill for $5 and swapped out the brown A key for the grey A key and then ditched the C16.

I just shipped this system out to BeardedSonofNel. I think there is some kind of a printer cable in the box too. At some point I had a daisy wheel printer for it.

That was a great printer, made for great document printing since it was the same quality as a good typewriter.

I've also got two of the big disc drives and two of the smaller ones to send out, I had to pick up some flat rate boxes for those.

Nice! Did you power it up? It hasn't been used in decades.

Not yet. Unfortunately the case got cracked in several places during the ship. I'll have to wait until this weekend when I have time to take it apart and make sure nothing is damaged before firing it up.

Oh man, that sucks. I thought that thing would be fine in shipping how it was with all that paper around it. I will have to pack the drives better.

Caved in last night and bought a used Xbox One X. I think getting rid of my old books, comics and retro systems made me in the mood to replace all that stuff with "something" and since Gears 5 doesn't run on my system, I thought I would go the used route and add a little something fun to the house. I couldn't afford it, but sometimes you just have to splurge.

Nice! I have yet to buy a PS4, so that might happen in the future. Right now I'm trying to get an Apple IIgs. I've bid on a few of them over the last couple of months. I got a bit on one now... I hope it holds.

I got darn lucky and found a good one right off the bat. It think this is the 2nd owner, who purchased it from Gamestop to play Gears of War 5 and then is dumping it now that they have finished the game.

You will have to post some pictures of the system. I'm curious where it broke, those things are usually invulnerable. I can have the Mrs keep an eye out for a new one at Savors or Goodwill if it doesn't work. There is a local guy on Craigslist that wants $275 for working C64 systems.

Holy crap! What the heck did UPS do to it? It was in that big heavy box, I never figured it would get trashed like that or I would have shipped it differently.

Oh man, what a shame. I can't imagine how many great memories happened around that machine.

That is just crushed, like they put something really heavy on top of it. The package was insured for $50. You should file a claim or find out if they need me to file a claim and we should at least get the $50 for you to put toward a replacement.

I'll check it out. It's weird because the box looked good. No real dents, or chunks out of it. It is what it is. I'll still take the drives.

I didn't get the chance to hook it up to see if it works. I'll have time later this week to try.
