Good morning all,

I was wondering if anyone would know who made this style case. I had one with sentimental value years ago and am regretting tossing it away (Who knew vintage computing would be a thing?)

The picture isn't mine, but is the case I'm asking about. It's generic, and at one point I remember seeing them near everywhere in (2) 5.25 and (3) 5.25 bay variants. I did an image search, the models available on auction and classified sites are too highly priced to take seriously.
Thanks!

I had similar situation. But google search worked for me. Found one on ebay, but I pay a lot for it. I wanted that case as it was the same I had as a kid. 🙂
Now, I am rebuilding it.

Hope you will find yours.

Congratulations! Looks like it's in fantastic shape. Glad you found yours, I'll continue to keep my eyes open. Google image search did help a lot, I'll check it periodically. Thanks and good luck!

Thx! Was in very bad shape when I got it. Luckily it just needed good cleaning and some whitening with chemicals + UV light (summer sun) 🙂

Sorry for the delay boby, those are nice too but not quite like the picture. I bought an AT case from someone, it's not even close but lets me continue with my build. I'll keep my eyes open 😀

Here: It is extremely overpriced, super dirty, and in germany...

(Funny: The seller of this really way freakin too expensive system mentions "Smokefree, no pet household" ... but that clearly didnt save the computer from looking like it was found in a swamp...)

Don't know where are you from but there's one currently being offered in Slovakia. Not cheap though.
