Atari Storage System

Here are some pics of an Atari display system I just made from Masonite, trim material and hot glue.

This is my original "Light Sixer", purchased with funds I earned over the course of an entire summer at a rate of $1.00 per hour circa 1981 or so. It no longer works, but I cannot stand the idea of parting with it after all the hours spent earning it and then playing on it. Its a tangible artifact to a childhood long gone.

The cartridges also date from that era, representing the best of the best, IMHO. In the order I came to acquired them, they are:

Air-Sea Battle
Space Invaders
Missile Command
Ms. Pac Man
Video Pinball
River Raid

Honorable mentions for cartridges that seem to have been lost over the years include:
