How many years did it take you to amass such a large collection?

Most of the stuff was pretty inexpensive.  Right place at the right time.

About 10 years , maybe a bit less.  I dont like to spend much money so it takes a while to find a good deal or set up a good trade

Wow! Congratulations. If only I *had* a basement.... Living in god-damned Calif there are NO basements, so we can't accumulate all this awesomeness. Basements are the perfect, perfect place to have a museum. And you've put all that wonderful space to great use!

I did have to move the washer and dryer to the main floor.  My wife says it smells like 'obsolete technology' down here and refuses to set foot in the basement.

I had that same 'problem' too.

some people smoke, some drink, some gamble.  My vice is that I can not stop going to flea markets and thrift stores looking for this stuff

How much of this stuff works, rietveld?
 

Also whoever posted, “you must have 2MB RAM there, congrats” - that is an A++++++ comment, huge laugh from that.

Beautiful collection but watch those cats. They appear to be looking for a place to pee.
