Sounds fun to me.

That's a fun little project.  Looking at the size of it, a little 2.5"
IDE drive (or CF) would go well with it - small enough to make a
native 16-bit portable (one of my long-term frivolous projects is
marrying a wee dumb terminal to a wee PDP-8 or PDP-11 for a
laptop-sized environment - easier to load into the car than the real
thing.  The SBC6120+IOB6120 is a good core for one version of that,
this could be another, using a Spare Time Gizmos VT-4 or similar).
