Help me out -- and get famous too! My name's Jonathan Vankin and I'm a
reporter in Los Angeles, doing a story for the L.A. Wekly. I'm looking for
people in the L.A. area who collect or have a passion for "classic" or
"obsolete" computers. Especially micros, e.g. old Apples, Commodores,
Amigas, Osbornes etc. etc. If you're in the L.A. area, you're into older
computers and, especially, if you have a collection or know someone who
does, could you drop me a line at the e-mail address above?

I got into this topic when I started getting nostalgic for my old ADAM,

what made me so nostalgic for it and taht led me to the numrous vintage
computer resources on the Web. But I need some L.A.-based colectors for the

My deadline is pretty soon -- so drop me an e-mail with a convenient way to
reach you now to spread the word about your beloved old machines! Thanks!
