Here's the deal. I just cleaned out the parents basement and my dad was done with all of his Commodore stuff. I've got a VIC20, a C-64 and two 128s that are looking for a home.

I don't have the time or inclination to ebay all of this stuff. I have no idea if it works, but my dad took good care of his computers (he had the 128 up and running as late as 95 before finally buying a Wintel machine). My fond memories of our first computers compel me to get them into the hands of a Commodore devote. And for the serious collectors, I've got the original packaging and manuals. http://s244.photobucket.com/albums/g...ster_for_sale/

I'm in Mass. I can meet you somewhere and hand it all over or I can ship it to you if you pay the shipping costs. So, here's what I have:

Commodore VIC-20 with tape drive
Commodore 64 with 1541 disk drive
2 Commodore 128s with 2 1571 disk drives
VIC-1011A RS232 Terminal

Wow! That is a great deal of Commodore stuff!

Hmmmm... If nobody from the forums is local to you and willing to pick this stuff up, could you put me on the list of people to explore shipping?

I figure shipping all of this stuff would be as much of a hassle to you as it would be expensive to me (I'm in WA state), but perhaps picking up a few items, or trickle-shipping the collection could work?

ADDITION: The photobucket link appears to have been crippled... :(

IM sent with what I would like if you are willing to do multiple shipments / split up the collection. Thanks for this. These will make fine additions to someone's collection I'm sure.

Could be he posted this to other forums, freecycle, newsgroups, craigslist etc and somebody is in the process of snagging it.

I wish posters would post when the items are claimed/gone.

Nice stuff.

Okay, I've read everything. Basically, more interest than equipment and some questions that need following up.

I'm going to weigh everything and figure out shipping costs.

There were also a few requests for very specific books or games. I'm willing to "part" those out so that more people can share in the bounty. There were enough requests for 128s that I think those should be split up since there are two. Otherwise, it's going to be first come first served. I hope this seems fair to everyone.

I'm going to edit my original post to define who's getting what and get the shipping estimates over the next couple of days.
