My Commodore C-64 (around 1985)

This is a picture of how my Commodore C-64 was setup at the time. Back then around 1985, I only had one floppy disk drive (which the Vic-20n at the time had to share) it's hard to believe that not more then 2 or 3 years later, I'd have at least 5 drives for my Commodore Setup in a tower and by the 1990's, I had at least 30 Plus Commodore Drives People were giving me. My first drive there cost over $300.
