Lonnie Mimms: The Vintage Computer Collector


Lonnie Mimms is a computer collector who started, what is now an incredible vintage computer collection, by saving the very first computers he ever purchased. From there the collection expanded and currently contains not only vintage computers, but many vintage computer accessories including some of the very first disk drives and modems.
