That popped up on another forum I read, more for the retro computer side of things!

C64 was a great machine, I still play the odd C64 game from time to time :)

Check out the car stereos. And the cameras.

Nothing but a whippersnapper Jez, I was 14 . . . .. and had the el-cheapo VIC-20 from commodore. Most of the other kids seemed to have the spectrum

Happy days :) . . . I'm not sure you'd be allowed to market a video game called "The adventures of Willy" nowadays without an 18 certificate though!

I recently bought a new Casio remote control watch. I love retro stuff!

You can also get Commodore LED watches fairly cheap but they look a bit ugly.

My little girl had one of those keyboards in 1986 when she was 7yrs old. I found it in the attic last year, put some batteries in it and wrapped it up for christmas for her. Still worked and brought back some lovelly memories.

I e-mailed the link to my dad and he says "We have most of that catalouge stuck in the attic" So he is on a mission to dig it all out, god knows what he will find ! :biggrin:

It's actually a lot of fun looking through these old catalogues.

Commodore C64 flashy gits, I had the VIC20 3.5K memory, I think the basic resolution was something like 28 characters wide.

BTW I was 16 in 1985.
