Nearly everything acquired over the weekend at VCF Midwest 4.0:
- Commodore Pet 4016 Computer
- Commodore Model 8050 Dual Drive Floppy Disk
- Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 1 Computer and Realistic cassette drive w/cables in "serious business" travel case.
- Matching Radio Shack TRS-80 Video Display also in travel case (from a different vendor than the CPU.)
- TRS-80 Mini Disk 5.25" external floppy (with dust cover!)
- TRS-80 Line Printer II (not really a line printer :( )
- Wang 360 Calculator central processor
- 3 Wang 360KT Calculator terminals (to go with a 300 terminal I already had)
- An Anderson Jacobsen acoustic modem!
- Not pictured: a big ol' tub of MFM hard drives and Hard Cards, an HP plotter transparency kit, some HP plotter paper (shrinkwrapped,) a bunch of RS/Tandy catalogs and other TRS-80 literature
All in all an excellent haul, though the Wang setup stands out as a "never thought I'd find one" piece. I will update if/when I get it working!
Here's a link to a short video I made of Pat's Vax 11/780.
And here's one to a Flickr photoset.
Oh, and there's this, too:

A few hours of work left (less if I can sneak away) and I'm off to West Lafayette, IN again for VCF Midwest. Won't be showing any gear this time - no time to prep and I wasn't even sure I was going until yesterday. But photos and reports from the scene will be filed!
