i´m looking for


The retro collection is growing very slowly but steadily. I am constantly looking for new copies on various Internet protals. Above all, I am looking for specimens that I once owned myself as a child or adolescent. But I’m also looking for objects that help complete a collection. Unfortunately, it is sometimes very difficult to get hold of copies without having to invest huge sums of money. That’s why I thought about creating this page here and posting a list of objects that are missing from the collection or that I am still looking for.

Commodore Computer

So if anyone finds a part or device listed here in their basement or attic and wants to get rid of it and maybe even donate it, then I would be very happy. I will of course then also create a blog post from it and, if the donor (;-)) wants it, also mention him by name in the post.

So here is the list of exhibits that I’m looking for:
