These pictures were all taken while the machines were on display at the
club meeting. I tried to display them in chronological order as best as
I could. Each will be covered in more detail further on through the
pictures. Looks like I had 26 on display. All of these belong to me
except for the Educator 64 in the standard 64 case. (This is the one
that looks like a regular 64 in picture #2, with no logo on its case.)

These are 3 of the 2001 series of PET's--the original styles.

Close-ups of these three machines. I was hoping the yellow
stick-on label could be read, but no luck. It identifies the added
keyboard as made by Maxi-Switch Company, P/N 2160020, with S/N
820-170. Also had # 630011-05 on the keyboard. The cassette unit
visible in the pictures is one of the oldest I've found. It doesn't
even say Commodore anywhere on the outside, but has a Commodore board
inside to replace the original audio boards. It was a standard
portable audio cassette recorder of the late 70's, modified by
Commodore--the original manufacturer's name was scratched off the cover!

13.jpg 2009-08-18 218237
A 4064 (Educator 64 in a standard large PET case) and a
SuperPET (SP9000). #12 shows the switches on the side of the SP that
switched between ROMs and also write-protected memory.

Back of the right (black 8kB) and center (8kB) machines.

Back of the left (4kB) and center (8kB) machines.

17.jpg 2009-08-18 198662
An 8032 and 8032-32-B (high profile case). The high-profile case allowed
the installation of internal drive mechanics, like the 8250 LP, and the
4040 LP (if the 4040 LPs were actually made).

18.jpg 2009-08-18 224179
Two low profile B/P series machines, and an MDS 6500. The left hand
machine is a P500. The MDS6500 was a specially modified PET 2001-32N
with some built-in software and a matching 2040 drive. Supposedly less
than 500 made. (But this has S/N 804932 on back--maybe CBM's original
number for the unmodified machine?) The right machine is a B128-80LP.

19.jpg 2009-08-18 199718
Back of the P500. ('82?) I don't have any info dug out on this one yet.

20.jpg 2009-08-18 174329
Back of the MDS (Microcomputer Development System).

26.jpg 2009-08-18 205742
B128-80HP and 720 (B256-80HP). Detachable keyboards, built-in monitors,
and room to install two internal low profile drive mechanics, such as 8250LP.

30.jpg 2009-08-18 190924
Three different style VIC-20's ('82). 3 different keyboards styles (if
you look closely), the two different case labelings, and picture 29 shows
the two different side panel/power connectors. #29 also shows a standard
C64 for comparison.

37.jpg 2009-08-18 199170
Various views of a C16 and Plus/4, along with their boxes and power
supplies. The Plus/4 is the smaller machine, with the larger power supply
(square plug). ('84)

43.jpg 2009-08-18 156008
Various views of an SX64. This is mine that I added the second drive into.
A few extra switches and stuff, for toggling device numbers, turning second
drive on/off, and un-write protecting.

44.jpg 2009-08-18 215642
A trio composed of the legendary C65, C64C, and a prototype C128.
Also a C64 in the background.

45.jpg 2009-08-18 224261
Closeup of 64C.

46.jpg 2009-08-18 183978
Back of C64C and C65.

47.jpg 2009-08-18 223239
The prototype C128. Missing keys are just broken--not designed that way.
S/N of this machine is less than 300, and supposedly has version 1
(never-released) ROMs. Also had not been FCC approved yet.
This particular machine isn't working right now.

49.jpg 2009-08-18 201947
