That's like, my dream collection.

I've got:

Commodore 64C x3
Commodore 64 x2
Amiga 500 x4
Amiga 1200
Amiga CD32
Toshiba T3200SX
Acorn A4000
BBC Master 128 (Ex NASA!)
Apple Macintosh Plus x2
Apple Macintosh SE x2
Apple PowerBook 100
Wang PC260
Atari 2600
ZX Spectrum 48k

I'm sure there's more than that, but I can't remember them off the top of my head. I've also got other old systems, but I'm not sure if they qualify, like a Playstation 1, GameBoy, and a few funky 486 laptops.
Amiga 4000: Apollo Turbo 040, 128MB Fast, 40gb HDD, CD-ROM (needs internet)
C64: 1541U-II, MixSID, WiFi, LumaFix64
ZX Spec, A1200, CD32, MacPlus/SE, A500, BBC Turbo Master (NASA), 2600, Acorn 4000, VIC-20, IBM 5155, GameBoy

Nice collection. Yes, the market for a huge stash like that would be very limited. Especially at that price.

At the moment:
Commodore Amiga 500
Commodore 64c x2

Would love to get a speccy when I've got some free cash :D

I guess a P1 doesn't count as vintage :wink:

Thanks Logan and Marcus for helping me get started with my collection :)

No worries. I'm planning a cleanout over the holiday break - I'm not keen on using trademe for this stuff. I'll start having a look through it and see what I have triple or more of. Might be in touch.

My collection has slightly expanded since I originally posted here at the start of this thread about my massive collection of 2 speccy's back at the start of 2013... :lol:

I'm now also hoarding...

2 x C64c (one dead, one untested (no PSU))
2 x C64 (breadbin style - one dead, one untested (no PSU))
1 x VIC 20 (untested - no PSU) + 3k RAM cart
1 x Amiga 600 (tested and working) + external 3.5" FDD
6 x ZX Spectrum (1 definitely dead, 1 working (but needs some more soldering) and 4 (2 working, 2 untested)) + someone's rewired CBM PET keyboard for Speccy use.
1 x Atari 600XL (working, plus 7 game carts) + 1050 FDD
1 x Sportronic pong game (working)
and I'm getting my ZX81 back (yay!) in a couple of weeks (my actual first computer - oh, the joys of never throwing things away :roll: )...

I have a load of peripherals and a tonne of tape software/books/hundreds of magazines I've yet to properly look through. Most of them are for the Spectrum, but I'll make a definitive list at some stage...

Who else collects Sun Microsystems boxes ?

I have about 30, but the 1995 and earlier are :

SparcStation IPC (1989)
SparcStation 1+ (1990)
SparcStation 2 (1990)
SparcStation LX (1992)
SparcServer 1000e (1992)
Sparc Classic X (1992)
SparcStation 5 (1993)
Sparcstaion 4 (1994)
SparcServer 20 (1994)
Ultra 1 (1995)
Ultra 2 (1995)


they all work apart from the 1000e and pretty much all have needed the PROM "reworked" to make them operable.

Anyone got any pre-1995 ones not listed here ?
