I've now got a little more info about those machines in Woodbridge VA.
Here is an excerpt from the e-mail:

Unfortunately, it sounds like mostly PC stuff. And he does not want to
deal with a dozen different people.

So, I'd like to choose two designated information-collectors to meet
at the warehouse (or factory, or whatever it is) and make a list of
what's there. If these things are really going for free, we'll want
to work out a way of avoiding conflicts, so nobody feels cheated. I
suggested that this guy may want to take offers as a way of resolving
it, but I don't know if he'll do that. If he does, I recommend
bidding _low_, since he wasn't planning to make money out of this.

I expect he will choose a date in the first weekend of December for
viewing the heap. (He will be out of town this weekend.) If you want
to volunteer to be on the info-collection team, let me know. If I get
more than two, I'll choose by rolling dice. If a chosen person has
to back out, I'll roll the dice again.

Also, after this, I will be sending only to the list of people who
have expressed an interest, not to the entire classiccmp list. If
you want to be kept informed, and are seeing this only through the
classiccmp mailing list, you need to let me know to add you to my
own list of interested people.
