New find - Franklin ACE 100 (not 1000)

Now I am not much of an Apple collector (though I'd pick up an Apple I
if I saw it cheap!), but I did find a Franklin ACE 100. This is the
machine which Apple sued Franklin over regarding their directly copying
the Apple ROMs (changing only the power on message). IIRC, Franklin
admitted the copying, saying that Apple's ROMs were too difficult to
reverse-engineer easily!

It looks like a bigger, uglier Franklin ACE 1000. Does anyone else have
one of these beasties?
