For hours & hours on end 😀 Sad thing is, the theme song always got stuck in my head, and yet it never bothered me.

Excellent work, badmojo! I too had a friend with a C64...😀 It was a few years before your experience (1983ish), and we were in junior high. I'd go over his house and play his C64 games, he'd come to my house and play Apple II games. Those were the days...

And yes, the tape drive load times were unbearable for us 13 year olds!

Thank you for sharing, and the awesome photos. You cleaned that sucker up real nice.

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

I often thought of getting a commodore 64 off Ebay. But then I always started thinking that once the nostalgia wore off it would quickly wind up sitting in the closet. Also, I strongly suspect that getting a 1541 in good condition would be difficult...those are going to be 35+ years old at this point!

Wow this takes me back! Yes this C64 is still going strong but I recently packed it away I must admit - after finding that my Cyrix socket 7 machine can emulate a C64 really nicely with CCS64 (and SMS / NES while its at it) I decided to save some space and put my 8 bits into storage.

The C64 scene seems to be stronger than ever which is great to see - so many great projects around for both original hardware and clones, etc.

@386SX - plastic VIC.

Excellent setup @Salient 👍
