Not to get anyone excited but 1571 drives command a decent price on
comp.sys.cbm. I've sold a couple there for $25 each, and that was on the
low side as they got snatched up quick.

But as far as that sort of stuff goes, I'm with Kai. Of course, I'm on
the west coast as well. I can find stuff like C64, Atari 800, TI-99/4a,
etc. in thrift shops for anywhere from $.99 to $2.98.
