HUGE old computer lot, maybe some gems

Same guy posted to the VCF Forum about this. He wont ebay, craigslist is 
full of "scummy people" and "advertising costs money" so in other words he 
will pay to junk it. Could be wrong but somewhere in there he stated it was 
purchased for $4500 or something? Why do people blow that kind of money 
without a plan to profit? Sure there are some units in there worth selling, 
but that is if they are complete, cleaned up, and working otherwise they 
will go for nothing to somebody looking for parts or a project.
