Not just a 785 but a VAX 8530, a VAX 8700 too. Two VAX 8250s
to boot (pun possibly intended :-)). Plus much other stuff
including spare parts and distribution tapes.

Surely CA is no problem: I assume you'd have to hire a driver
to go with the 40' truck anyway - how expensive can it be
from Oklahom to California :-)

I like the "Preference to go to a good home -
otherwise theres over $2,000 scrap gold in these machines"
and I'm impressed by the "Can be shown fully working".

Clearly a golden opportunity for someone.
