Number Nine, perhaps?  I think they made a NuBus graphics adapter as
well as a PC adapter.

There were a few of these around the UofU CS department at that time
as well.

The department taught CS 104 (Pascal Programming) on Mac classics with
Light Speed Pascal.  I was a TA for that course and LSP was a pretty
decent environment for the classic -- it was like turbo pascal that
compiled everything in memory for fast compilation speed.
