Alas, what can I say, I am a Commodore addict and I am not ashamed to admit it.

The name is Frank. I have been collecting, repairing and designing items for retro computers for a while now.

I decided to turn my addiction passion into a sort of career. See, my wife was getting really sick of the old machines everywhere. She couldn't check Pintrest or watch Netflix with them.

In passing she said "Why don't you try selling some of the crap you have made?". The light bulb slowly increased and a retro computer empire was born, lol.

I turned my passion and hobby into something that continues to feed my addiction and hobby. RetroRewind.ca was born.

We're extremely lucky and honored to have you, Frank! Can't wait to see some of your surviving collection. You have this lo-res pic on your site of your workbench.

Is this still an up-to-date photo? And, do you have a higher-res version? =)

Cheers!

Everything you see there is used for development and prototyping. I have one of everything we make products for. It’s just easier to pull it down and work on it than dig through one of the shelves for it.

We just signed a lease for some space, so I can move all of our manufacturing equipment out of my basement. Just waiting for the landlord to do some agreed to Reno’s. As soon as that is done, I will post some higher res images of our space and my collection.
