Well... while I don't necessarily consider it screwy (curious perhaps)...
I'm a bowler, and as many could attest hate to see old things hit the
scrap. So, out in the garage (in the midst of re-assembly) there is a 1954
AMF Model 82-30 Automatic Pinspotter.

Which, curiously enough at a total reported weight (I have to believe the
book since I'm not inclined to find a scale big enough to find out for
myself) of just under a ton comes in larger (heavier at least) that the
single largest CPU in my collection. (the VAX 11/780 at a book weight of
1100 pounds)
