Description: I finally finished my Sidecar project. The specs are;

A1060 Sidecar with NEC V20 CPU
Chinon 360k A Drive
A1020 external 5.25 B Drive
Rebuilt and modified 250 watt AT Power Supply
Video 7 XT VGA Display Board
65 Meg MFM Hard Card
Microsoft XT PC Ramboard (only 128k of 256k is recognized by the Sidecar Bios)

The Amiga 1000 that runs it is almost finished. It's currently working with 3.1 rom and booting from a 2.5 inch laptop drive via IDE68K. Hopefully I can get the 1 meg piggyback hack working. Thanks  to DJBase and mrmkl for the custom hardware.

The 20 year old HD works great! I especially like the rainbow color cycling of the Video 7 VGA bios as it comes up:-) It is currently running Dos 6.2 with some old utilities. Next stop Windows Executive 1.0:-D

Wow, what a piece of history & sacred antiquity!

Is the 20(?) -year-old HDD still working?

Please take me for a ride in the side car!
