Bosch ("Botched"?) fool injection "brain" in 1968 VW type 3.

If peripherals count, howzbout FIVE DTC300 Hitype I terminals on stands
with a 1974 Civic hatchback. (I hadn't expected to bring back much from
that session of John Craig's "Computer Swap America"). I packed them in,
and tied some onto the roof. I had a librarian friend along, who had
never previously had to climb in and out of a car through the window.
