          I have an unusual CoCo was produced as a kit form. I
bought it at a RS tent sale in Dallas in 1985-86. I thought it was a
plug in the boards kit, but when I got it home it was totally bare
boards. Took several hours of soldering to complete. I was told by a
friend who was a RS manager, that they were a pilot program for schools
to have classes assemble the machines and then the school would have
alow cost path to getting more computers. Tandy later decided that this
would be a warranty nightmare and sold the kits for $20 at the tent
