"Old Yella"

Recommended Posts

Sometimes Retro Gaming rigs are well known for their aged and yellow appearance.

Do you have any photos that you think is the best example of the worst of the worst in the "Old Yella" looks department?

 

Who can post the most atrocious yellow looking old gaming rig or computer? It's not limited to age alone, even nicotine stains qualify!

For some reason I don't have any truly cheese yellow system despite owning both VIC-20's and Amiga 1200.

 

A brief image search brought up this beauty, where half the shell had been treated with Retr0brite for 8 hours.

I seriously do not have a reaction image which can fully address and express my reaction to this...

The "cheese yellow" grading scale for Retro Computers? I like it! Help me out here, on a 10 point scale, which cheeses would you use from lightest to darkest?

 

That photo is a great example of what Retro-Brite can do! I'm impressed.
