    Does an old General Electric Wildcat count as nostalgic hardware?

    An omelet gone horribly wrong. If anyone's wondering it's Steve Martin's The Crow.

    Yep I am sure it is from the 70's. If there is no tag on the back board behind the unit, you can probably pull that back board and there should be one on the inside of it or possibly on one of the sides of the main cabinet. If I had to guess, due to no name on the tuner itself, I would guess it to be a Coranado brand. They were sold a lot during the early 70's. A lot of little stores carried them. One of the main distributors for Coranado was a store chain called Gambles. Gambles and another chain called Coast to Coast was a couple of the larger distributors for the Coranado brand name.

    Thanks. I'll see if I can get the back panel off in the spring. It's currently buried under various things that have no business being in a garage.

    Wow, I remember when my parents first bought our first computer (I'm a Senior in High School), we sort of got ripped off from an old Store in here, Fresno, CA. It was called A+ Computers.

    We have come a long way baby!

    I had to do a little digging to find this fella. Figured using a Quarter would give a good idea of scale.
