Cult of Mac interviews Adam Goolevitch, Mac Collector

This article appeared more than ten days ago, so I’m probably the last to report it. Sadly, these days I’ve been dreadfully busy and I couldn’t update this site with the frequency I had in mind. Nonetheless, Adam Rosen’s interview of Adam Goolevitch is a must-read for all vintage Mac users, collectors and enthusiasts out there. Especially for the great photos of really unique systems accompanying it — a 128k Mac with a 5.25″ Twiggy floppy drive, a clear Macintosh SE, and a lot of Lisa 1 and 2.

Goolevitch has a few interesting anecdotes as a Mac collector, which I won’t spoil. And by the way, he’s selling that 128k Mac with Twiggy drive to someone (or some museum or organisation) who can really take care of it. The asking price is $50,000: it’s a lot, but according to Goolevitch “the prototype Macintosh 128k is the only complete example found so far.”

I am not a collector of such calibre, but I have had a few curious adventures myself over the years. Read The strange cases of vintage Apple hardware sellers, Part 1 and Part 2 for some examples of what and whom I had to deal with.
