Any iMac ever made does not have the ability to do this, your iMac LCD can only be addressed by the iMac that it is part of. The only way to have 2 displays on an iMac is to buy a Display and connect it to the display / thunderbolt port...

Apparently not quite correct:
beccarock8 I don't know if it will work but if you connect your old machine to your new one and use a mini-displayport cable and launch your old machine in target display mode as directed by that apple doc I linked to ti may work...or not. The wild card here is the thunderbolt to mini displayport. Certainly the TB connection can be used to connect to a mini-displayport display. The question is does the old computer look like a display to the new machine?
Note I said use the older machine in target display mode. The reverse definitely won't work since a TB device cannot be connected to a mini-displayport source.
