Lonnie Mimms: The Vintage Computer Collector

Lonnie Mimms is a computer collector who owns many of the rarest computers still in existence. His collection started with the very first computer he ever owned. From there, the collection expanded. It now contains many early computer accessories including disk drives and modems. Today, his computer collection is estimated to be valued at over one million dollars. Lonnie’s goal is to turn his collection into a museum.

If he is able to obtain that goal, he’ll have the following vintage computers and accessories on display: AppleII, MFJ Acoustic Coupled Modem, Lisa, Altair 8800, DiskII, IPod 2nd, IMac, and the Commodore PET.
