    I remember a post on here a while ago with someone saying that they went to a car boot and found loads of old game consoles really cheap.

    Has anyone been to a car boot recently and have you found any of these old computers?

    They always have them at car boots.

    In most town & cities once a month there is computer fair where you can pick up old computers and games they are normally advertised in the local papers.

    My mate picked up a zx spectrum 128 the other day with 300 games for £10 :D he's only got as far as number 10 which is cobra with the flying cheese burgers :D

    Always been tempted to buy an Amiga A500 as it was IMO the best computer or console for gaming of all time.

    If I had a man cave I'd buy a C16+4, C64, Spectrum 48k (Rubber Key model and external tape drive), Spectrum 128+2, Amstrad CPC6128, Amiga 500 with add on CD-Rom, Amiga 4000.

    I'd also have a console section with a Atari 2600, Master System, Mega Drive, NES, SNES, PS2, PS3, XBOX, XBOX 360, Wii.

    All pimped out with as many games and accessories as I can find :biggrin

    I buy nearly all my old consoles, computers & games from carboots. I tend to find the items are a lot cheaper than ebay, as people tend to want to just get rid of old junk, than make a hefty profit.

    Last carboot I done a week last saturday - (Nice Midday start at carboot in Chesterfield) :)
    I bought 38 original Ps1 games, and 17 Ps2 games costing £10 for the lot. I wasnt particulary bothered about a lot of the PS2 games, and as we were standing at the car boot..........i sold 8 for a quid each, which resulting in £8 means I only paid 2 quid for the lot:)

    Car boots are awesome................
