Lots of FREE Macs in SLC, Utah

A member over at 68kMLA is giving away a bunch of classic Macs. He's pretty desperate to get them gone as he's moving out of town Thursday, so he needs them gone by Wednesday night. Hoping to help save some Macs from the landfill. Reply back here if you're interested and we can try and figure out how to everyone together.

Here's the list:

Performa 636 with OS 8.1 (has Mac Paint!)
Performa 6115CD with OS 8.5, upgraded with a 247MHz Newertech PDS processor card and AV card
Performa 6400/180 with OS 9.1, TV tuner card, remote control, and USB add-on ports (makes a fun television)
Power Mac 7100/80 with OS 8.6
Power Mac G3 with OS 9.1
Macintosh Color Display (15", I think)

The following two macs booted and worked perfectly before I put them in storage. While in storage, their PRAM batteries ran dry. I believe they will work perfectly once their batteries have been replaced.
Mac Classic 2, powers on, doesn't boot
Mac LC, does not power on

I also have boxes full of SCSI cables, SCSI terminators, ethernet dongles, Apple ADB keyboards, Apple ADB mice, and some old original Mac OS disks including OS 7.6, 8.5, and 9.1. I haven't opened the boxes in a while. If anyone is interested, I can dig through them and give a more complete listing of their contents.

If he has an SCSI adaptor and will ship it, I'll take one.

I would like the Classic 2, but I'm not sure I have the space for it. I'll see if I can make room.

This is a PICKUP ONLY for the whole lot. He's not shipping.

Oh well. I would have loved a classic 2. Tell me if he changes his mind.

Hello there, I would love to get this Power Mac G3 with OS 9.1. Please, let me know if there is any chance. Thanks.

In fact, I would love to get them all. But it would be expensive to bring them to where I live.

I could pickup everything, but I'm not back in town until Thursday morning. If that's too late, I could probably send a friend over Wednesday. I'm especially interested in the Classic 2, Display, 6115cd, lc and software. Thanks.

JimmyD, would you, if you get them, list the CD titles here?
