Jeffrey, I wonder if maybe you mean the ZX81? - The ZX80 came with
something like maybe 1K of ram as I recall, but the ZX81 had a wobbly
16K ram extension that plugged into the back and took it to 32K. My
electronics tutor wrote a car race arcade game on the ZX80 in machine
code - it was actually good. But I never had one of those. I did have a
ZX81 and subsequently several Spectrums.

I actually do have the ZX81 Sinclair BASIC manual. If that is in fact
what you need, what would you like to know? - Who me, sentimental?
I did trash the machine itself a while back though, since I no longer
have a TV to plug it into.
