Jeremy Mehrle has turned the basement of his suburban St. Louis home into one of the coolest private computer museums you will ever see. He has 74 vintage Apple Macintosh computers impeccably displayed. All of them are fully-functional so you can see what the old operating systems were like. Some of the highlights of his collection are an Apple Lisa, a 20th Anniversary Macintosh, and a NeXT computer.

This is not the first time his collection has been seen on the Web. After he first posted photos of it on his Flickr account, the collection was seen on several prominent blogs and social networking sites, including the front page of Digg (twice!), Macworld, Mac Life, and Engadget. But Podtech and LO-FI SAINT LOUIS are proud to bring the first video look at this amazing collection — amazing not for its size but the loving care Jeremy took in displaying these machines. Thanks to Walkie Talkie USA for providing the great Bowiesque soundtrack for this video.

Also there’s a bit of tech satire at the end of this video that you might enjoy — it’s from the sketch comedy group Flapping Crane. Special thanks to them for permission to use their clip.
