The c64 has some really cool stuff to collect.
Ever see the cmd super cpu box + ram attachment? thats neat.
I do my hunting on ebay. OK, I look a lot and convince myself out of buying. Mostly because the state of vice emulator is so good and old hardware, we are getting to a point where you need to watch out for leaking capacitors and such.
the other problem as you noted is diskdrives, these old drives die at an amazing rate (heck I remember going through at least 7 or 8 drives back when c64 was the 'in thing').
Collecting old hardware and such kind of turns me off now (I was about to buy a nice laser 128ex....) also would love to score a nice c= 128dcr
but then I argue with myself I'd never use them.
What kind of c64 stuff are you looking to collect? just software?
I dont know how many mint copies of giana sisters will ever show up and then be affordable since its super collectable :)
