1G drive, sheesh I remember playing around with computers that had "modern" tape drives. It was big news when my dad got an IBM PC, with 2 5.25 drives and a whole 20MB of hard drive space and paid extra for the 640K of RAM. I also remember the crap I got into when I accidentally formatted the drive.

My dad had one of the original car phone where the craddle was litterally screwed or bolted into the floor of the car, sort of like in the image below.

Ah the memories!!
