This has got to be one of the principles of collecting, complete machines
are cheaper than the parts. When I do this with a VAX I call it "VAX
mining." You get 6 tons of non-working VAX equipment for free and then you
put together working systems out of the parts and sell or give away the
extra pieces. The first two MicroVAX IIs that I bought (non-working/no
drives) had RQD11/E ESDI controllers in them. Replace the drives and voila,
nice systems once again.
