Classic Computers to Save?

I just got back from checking out several places here in Sanata Barbara
where machines are being sold.

First, there are a number of SpectraGraphics DS1080 machines along with
some good size terminals, keyboards, etc. I am not familiar with the
units but the guy indicated this was a workstation assembly. If anyone
is interested, let me know and I'll get back to him. I *think* there
were about four of the DS1080 machines, at least a couple large monitors
(19" or so RGB I think), some keyboards, perhaps some type of digitizing
pad (not sure about this), and I didn't see any docs or software with
it. He indicated he would be quite happy with $100 for the lot. My
guess is that the lot weighs probably about 300 pounds or so. He
indicated this was used as a CAD system.

Second, there is an NCR PC-8 Xenix machine with some software, monitor,
and several keyboards. I might end up trying to get it since I don't
have one in the collection but if someone else is interested, let me
know. My guess is that the lot weighs in at about 100 pounds or so.
While I forgot to ask the price on this, he would most likely be more
than happy with $30 - $50 for the lot.

Thirdly, he had three or four Apple IIC's along with a bit of
documentation, one of the Imagewriters, and perhaps some a little bit of
other stuff I missed. Total weight is probably about 50 - 75 pounds,
and he would take $20 each or probably $40 - $50 for the lot. Each of
the first three Apples had either one or two external floppy disk drives
with them.

Finally, I went over to a local rummage sale and there was a bunch of
Commodore stuff primarily C64s, documentation, some Apple docs, and some
printers. This will be over this afternoon about 3PM PST so I will show
up about 2:30 to see what I can haul away :). I will most likely just
pick it up what is left just to save it from the dumpster but most of
what I saw, I already have. Total weight was probably about 100 pounds
including documentation. I did pick up the some of the docs and there
are duplicate Apple II and IIe manuals.

The first three items may or may not be sold this weekend to someone
from Los Angeles. However, being here does give me an advantage :), so
if anyone is interested in anything here, let me know!
