Our buddy Gary in New Zealand just stumbled upon a treasure trove of Amiga goodness!
“Last week I received a call from a guy I bought an Amiga off via our local online auction site a while back. He said he knew a guy who had just passed away and his family was selling his Amiga collection.
He put me in contact with them and they sent me a list of the working gear.
5 x A2000s
1 x A2500
1 x A3000
1 x CD32
1 x A1200
3 x A500s
1 x A500 plus
2 x A600s
6 x Commodore screens
Various peripherals, including flicker fixers, video gear, memory, hard drives, books, manuals and the list goes on… Too much to itemise.
I’ve started to go through it and I have so far tested the A1200, 2 x A600s (1 bad) and 3 x A500s (1 bad), A500+.
I fired up the A3000, A2500 and one of the A2000s but I did not get any video output. I think that’s because of screen incompatibility with the flicker fixers. I don’t know much about the big box machines and have never seen any before.
Anyway, I thought you’d like to hear about that. I’ve attached photos. I’ll let you know how I get on with the remaining units.”
