Subject: Lear-Siegler ADM3A with Retrographics (Tek emulator) plus spare parts

I have an original relic of the computing of the late 70's and early 80's
here: it's an ADM3A (the ASCII terminal that looks like a Volkswagen
Beetle) that has had a Retrographics board dropped into it so that it
can emulate Tektronix graphics. (I've never used that functionality,
but I can provide you with the notes that were given to me on how
to make it work.) It's in the light blue/dark blue two-tone that LS
liked to make these in...it's almost indestructable...and it's
relatively heavy. I also have a box of spare parts which includes
1 or 2 extra ADM3A boards (gotta love all that TTL logic!) plus whatever
else I gutted from the extra ADM3A's that were sitting around.

It also works: I used it to boot a Sparcstation last week.

Make me an offer (and please be sure that it's enough to cover shipping
costs, or you can pick it up near Philadelphia or Baltimore) and the
entire pile o'stuff can lend an authentic air to your retro-computing
environment. My email address is below.
