1982 Motorcycle MPG Fuel Economy Guide
World Changing Event: January 9, 1982 – The Commodore 64 8-bit home computer is introduced by Commodore International. During the C64’s lifetime 10,000 commercial software titles were made for the C64 and sales totalled 17 million units, making it the best-selling single personal computer model of all time. It is sometimes compared to the Ford Model-T automobile for its role in bringing a new technology to middle-class households via creative mass-production.
