I was at GoldenWest Surplus, 346 American Circle, Corona, CA 92880

and they were unloading a stakebed truck load of HP stuff and tape stuff
like a cleaner verifyer and some Bell and Howell thingy with banks of
meters below the drive. I saw at least half a dozen HP1000 units in racks,
and about the same number of 7870 tape drives. One three rack thingy was a
HP measurement system, and another rack was full of instruments of various
kinds. Condition "looked" working or stored once working. And a couple mini
fridge sized disk drives too I think.

The deal. <as I understand it>
Somebody bought this load at auction, and got Goldenwest to haul it to
Corona where that someone will be pulling what they want in the next couple
days, then the rest belongs to Goldenwest. The owner of Goldenwest, Mark,
wont say diddly about it until it belongs to him, but it sounds like he is
open to offers as soon as the guy says I'm done take it. Mark is pretty
much bottom line oriented, won't talk about it until the deal is ready, but
if you are local and prepared to make a serious offer a call might not be a
bad idea in the next day or so. Coordination on the list prior to calling
might be a good idea, and with that I am for the most part out of the loop.
