I think if you will want to buy, sell or trade any piece of classic
computer gear, the VCF will be the place to do it at. Of course, I may
be a bit biased with that opinion :)

I too like to keep duplicates of systems, and only start shedding stuff
off at 3 and up. That way if something obscure ever breaks down in one I
have the other to canibalize.
