I tried listing one back in September '99 with a $50 reserve but it only
got to $22.00 after 4 bids. I did eventually sell it outside of eBay for
$50. I thought more people would be interested in it as it's a right cool
terminal. The model number is 733.

Here are some pictures:


Through that auction, someone who used to own a GM dealership and used the
terminals gave me a bit of background on them. I can dig up that message
if anyone is interested.
