Tandy Radio Shack CoCo 2 Goodness!

by on Nov.11, 2015, under Tandy TRS-80 Series

Right now I have two auctions up on eBay for one of the classics of the home computer era!

A Radio Shack 64K Color Computer 2 and a 16K version! (see my Auctions page for more details).

I have lovingly restored these machines to their former glory and they look kinda like new if I say so myself. Awesome considering the are over 32 years old, and still in great working condition!

I even made up a cable that will allow you to load programs to the computers via your smart phone! Again, see the auctions for details!

As the holiday season draws closer, I hope to furnish people with a genuine retro experience with these legendary machines. I’m sure any retro-head out there would be proud to add these little beauties to their collection!

Retro – CoCo 2 Restoration!

by on Oct.22, 2015, under Tandy TRS-80 Series

As well as having a passion for retro games and FPS, we have a passion for retro computers!
I myself like to restore them to their former glory.

Below is some restoration pics of a Radio Shack (Tandy) Color Computer 2 64K, model number 26-3127.

This is the first 64K Color Computer 2. It contains the Extended BASIC ROM, the “enhanced” keyboard, and 64 kilobytes of RAM (naturally). Otherwise, it is identical to the 26-3026/26-3027. The RAM is soldered in place in those machines which were factory-equipped with 64K, making replacement thereof a bit more difficult if necessary. For this reason, the 26-3026 and 26-3027 variants are my favorites!

I will post more details of the restoration process later!
