Uh, I live in Norman, where this thing is!

I'm seriously thinking about what I would need to rescue this beast. I
probably have room for it in my garage (tight fit though), where it would
sit for several years until I could afford my own place (which very well may
be a warehouse with a bed in one corner :-) ). I see two problems with this

0. Some of those cabinets are *wide*. It seems like it may be too big to be
handled with a lift-gate-enabled Ryder rental truck.

1. I think he's looking for lots of money here. I'm not a poor college
student any more, but I'm not rolling in dough, either. The reward-expense
ratio for this may just be too low for me to act. There are other (almost
equally) cool machines that are smaller and could be obtained for less
money, if my suspicions are right about this seller's reserve price.
However, this is in my own town, and I'd hate to see it go to the scrapper.

Does anyone have any comments, especially WRT the transportability of this
