The C65 #1 at the Amiwest Show 2017

Here it is in beautiful condition!
Fully working!
Loading images from the C65 Demo Disk!
I was so mesmerized I forgot to take pics of the images!
A test cartridge for the C65
How many photos can I take of the interior?!
Check out the 1565 disk drive on the right.

C64 mode on the C65
Yup, another interior view.
It was a shocker on Friday night, Oct. 20, when Paul Lassa showed up with C65 serial number 1!  He was there to show it off, not to make a full presentation (though everyone urged him to do so).  The crowd was so entranced by the machine; they could not take their eyes off of it or off the demo of images being loaded one after another on the screen.  Darn, I didn't have my videocamera ready!  :(  Paul had become the most interesting man in the world!  ;)
