Classic Computer Rescue Squad

Oh yes, Tim (This could be a Tim-Tim conversation type thing!!!), that
would be very nice. Well let's see, I'd have to trade in the Honda for a
truck, ship it back to the US from Bahrain, drive down, and then come back.
  Not my idea of fun. (Sorry, I didn't mean to sound hostile)
        I've found 30 IBM 400 terminals for $1 a piece, in Western Massachusetts,
but no mainframe.
        Anyway, I need systems, not parts (I need systems for the parts :-) .)
But if I get the systems, I'll get the parts. I can even use the most
"common" classics, I have a US postal address.

Sure. Come up here with a lift-gate truck and I'll sell you all the
Data General Novas, 14" disk drives, and 1/2" 9-track tape drives
that you could want.
