Yesterday I drove 200 miles to save a couple of Amigas from a dark tomb. Back in January I had purchased a couple of Super genlocks from a seller on ebay. When I recieved my package he had a hand written letter stating that he lived in my state and had a bunch more stuff if I was interested....of coarse I was! We emaild back and forth for awhile and told me it would take him awhile to dig it all out......hes an older gentleman. Then I never heard from him again. I decided to get in touch with him at the end of July. He promptly responded apologized for taking so long....he got sidetracked. So yesterday I made the trek to his place and picked up these beautiful A3000s .... 3 monitors.... A ton of software and misc hardware. He used to do commercials for businesses including honda. The units are decked out with toasters and other boards....what a score!
I felt the same way too joeuser. Reading about people and watching videos of mega finds... thinking too myself that would be nice. To be honest I'm pumped about it. Now I have 2-1000s 2- 500s 2-2000s and 2-3000s. I still wanna get a 1200 and 600.
They're both very, very expensive to acquire, sadly. I'm holding out for an A1200 rescue or parts donor, then fix it as needed (only because of the insane auction prices). Not really interested in an A600, seems like an oddball machine, IMO.
