I'd second Zane's vote for a PDP-10, and an S/360 / S/370 might be nice,
but I think a 7094 would be a bit cooler.. er... more fun. Hmm, those
are both 36-bit machines.

A DG Nova replica might be interesting, but what might be even better is
a CDC 6600. Ooh, that would be fun. Hey Tom, any chance of getting
enough specs off that operators console you've got to build a new one?
