The Henry Ford

The Victor 9000 (sold as the Sirius 1 in Europe), introduced in 1981, was a direct competitor of IBM's Personal Computer. It was created by Chuck Peddle, lead designer of the MOS 6502 microprocessor and Commodore PET. Upon boot-up, the computer's sound hardware was designed to say: "I am the Victor 9000, the number one choice in business computers."
