I've just completed an obviously long-overdue article on the Sol-20 for the Wikipedia.

It really needs some images. Does anyone out there have images that they took of this machine? Especially the interior!


Just checked, there's one in the attic. So what kind of pics are needed. And no, I do not own any fancy camera - unless an Apple QuickTake 100 counts :))

(the black box in the lower right is way more interesting, as it's a rackmount (!) disk drive for an Atari ST.

  • What is that CBM machine leaning up there? – Wilson Jul 17 '18 at 7:32
  • @Wilson It's a V(I)C 20 with/inside a VC1020 expansion chassis. It was quite popular in Europe. Thinking of it, it fits the picture, as it turns the VIC almost into a SOL :)) zimmers.net/cbmpics/x1020.html and google.com/search?q=CBM+1020&tbm=isch – Raffzahn Jul 17 '18 at 9:20

    Raff, would you be able to take some pictures of this machine with the cover removed? The Sol's expansion chassis was pretty clever (IMHO), and I'm especially interested in showing how that layout worked. The only image I have on the Wiki now is a nice one, but its from the front with the cover on. – Maury Markowitz Jul 17 '18 at 13:16
  • @MauryMarkowitz Please mail me, so we can close this – Raffzahn Jul 17 '18 at 13:44
  • It seems your post with the address was removed. Ping me? It's my first and last name with a period between them on gmail. – Maury Markowitz Jul 17 '18 at 19:36
