I would figure that the Compaq "portable" I have and the IBM 9595 486 
with the MCA bus are worthy. I also have a couple of interesting dual 
IBM pentiums as well. Multiple Pentium Pro machines are kinda cool. 
Beyond that... *shrug*

And, a rescue should probably be older, that cuts out most PIIs anyway...
