That bothered me as well...

AFAIK no ISP uses vintage hardware. So you're going to be connecting to 
some modern machine.

What is the difference between : 

1) Using a classic to connect to an ISP that allows shell/UUCP access 
(with a non-classic at the ISP end), which then speaks TCP/IP to the rest 
of the world

2) Using a classic to connect to a modern machine that _you own_ using 
UUCP, and then having your non-clasic talk TCP/IP to an ISP (say using 
PPP) and thence to the rest of the world
