Me, too. By the time I first touched a Sun in college, the Sun3s were
what they were buying. My personal first was a SPARCstation1 I picked
up for about $800 in 1993 or 1994. Dropped much more than that on RAM
and a 1.8Gb SCSI drive to make it "useful". Through rolling upgrades,
that corner of the room is now occupied by a SPARC5 w/256Mb of RAM
and about 20Gb of SCSI disk that cost much less than any single component
of its ancestor. Ah... progress...

My oldest Sun at the moment is a Sun3/50. I probably won't be able
to top that for a long time.
