Commodore VIC-20

What is it?

The VIC-20.

I remember playing with a VIC-20 at a home show here in Thunder Bay. I also almost purchased a VIC-20 in 1982 when the were starting to be phased out, but thankfully, my parents suggested I buy the C-64 instead. The electronic surplus shop on Queen Street East in Toronto, Ontario was selling VIC-20s by the kilogram in the early 90's.

What do you have in your collection?

I've got 7? VIC-20s here - I threw out a bunch of non-working ones a summer or two ago, after I pulled all the socketed chips from them.

I've also got a fairly large VIC-20 cartridge collection - probably around 30 unique titles.

What are you doing with it?

I've got a VIC-20 hooked up on my console shelves, but I rarely do anything with it.


Veni vidi vic! - a fairly recent (1997?) VIC-20 demo.
VICI ITERUM MM - an even more recently released VIC-20 demo.
Denial - a VIC-20 forum. This fellow made a newsletter called Denial before - I've got the first (and only?) issue.
