    I had pretty much given up on finding interesting vintage electronics 
at Goodwill, but I also made a good score last summer: a Data General 
LDM-800 line matrix printer for $4.95 (half-price day).  There's not a 
thing wrong with it, after a couple of alignment procedures.  They 
actually had two of them, but I only had room for one.  :-)
