Weekend Haul


Nearly everything acquired over the weekend at VCF Midwest 4.0:

– Commodore Pet 4016 Computer
– Commodore Model 8050 Dual Drive Floppy Disk
– Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 1 Computer and Realistic cassette drive w/cables in “serious business” travel case.
– Matching Radio Shack TRS-80 Video Display also in travel case (from a different vendor than the CPU.)
– TRS-80 Mini Disk 5.25″ external floppy (with dust cover!)
– TRS-80 Line Printer II (not really a line printer 🙁 )
Wang 360 Calculator central processor
– 3 Wang 360KT Calculator terminals (to go with a 300 terminal I already had)
– An Anderson Jacobsen acoustic modem!
– Not pictured: a big ol’ tub of MFM hard drives and Hard Cards, an HP plotter transparency kit, some HP plotter paper (shrinkwrapped,) a bunch of RS/Tandy catalogs and other TRS-80 literature

All in all an excellent haul, though the Wang setup stands out as a “never thought I’d find one” piece. I will update if/when I get it working!

Here’s a link to a short video I made of Pat’s Vax 11/780.
And here’s one to a Flickr photoset.

Oh, and there’s this, too:
