No pictures of the front. But I did look at them Monday
They were all 590's and 58H's All had multiple scsi controllers
Some had tapes some had cdroms
They all powered up, but I couldn't attach a terminal/monitor to
them so I couldn't boot them.

They went for about $2.50-$5.00 a piece Today at the UA auction

I didn't buy any as I simply have no more room, and with the
  SE Arizona monsoon season approaching quickly, I am in the
process of moving stuff from the covered deck,and carports into
  the more protected shed, old house trailer, or any one of the other
"dry" areas where I have literally hundreds (OK,Dozens) of big ol
Sun , Dec, pdp,vax, IBM, SGI, Mac computers I (and my brother) have
rescued from the Uof A auctions over the last 5 years.

If anybody on the list is in the neighborhood of Tomstone AZ
or is planning on visiting the area and need some stuff for free (or 
very,very little)
see me!!!!. LOL
