    I know of where some VAX 11/785's are just rotting away, they're loaded
with boards(ie. at least 32MB of RAM), and the owner probably wouldn't want
much for them(I worked them out for $250 each recently).

    They're in SW Virginia(in Dublin, VA; about 15 minutes from Blacksburg,
where Virginia Tech. is).
