I also live 30 minutes outside of Philly. There are a number of places
to find great classic computers. Just three weeks ago, I found a front
panel IMSAI 8080 and another S-100 kit for $10 at a flea market in NJ.
The IMSAI is in perfect working condition, except for four broken
plastic switches. By the way, can anyone tell me the address of the
place that sells the switches? The kit is unlabeled except for it says
Xitan or maybe Xitac on the motherboard (I'm at work and can't check
right now.)

I agree with Les that the Salvation Army and Goodwill stores around here
never have any classic computers worth buying.
