I think the breadbox is a widely used name for the C64. At least in it's later days.
My C128 was bought about 2 months after it was launched in Denmark. First games we got for it were Gogo the ghost and Park patrol, both great games I'd love to play again on the Amiga or PC.
The C128 was one my father bought to play around with (he was the tech type always fiddling with electric stuff, I think he had 5 or 6 broken TVs in his little hobby room.
That's the same C128 we've had all the time, though I bought it off him later on. Before that I bought my own C64 but quickly learned to hate using it (probably because programming in basic is no fun when you have to go chase the enter key after ending a line)
