A1500 + GVP Impact Series II

I wanted a HD8+ GVP Impact Series II for my A500 I talked my dad into driving us from Preston to Leeds (140 miles there and back) to First Computer Centre who was selling them cheap, collection only.

When we got there they were out of stock, despite me having rung and reserved one before we set off!

I was pissed, and didnt want to go home empty handed. The sales guy managed to pursuade me to buy an A1500 (which he would heavily discount) + Zorro II version of Impact Series II. He convinced me that if I could get XXX amount for my second hand A500 in MicroMart then the cost was about the same as an A500 HD8+ and I would be getting a big box Amiga for free!

I was young and impressionable and did the deal £600+ I remember. I never did get enough from the sale of my A500 and what should have been a sub £200 hard drive became a very expensive lemon.
