1) Start small.  You can always add to the collection later.    That often occurs, sometimes with accompanying amnesia of the actual transaction.

2) If you possess genes for  “like to take things apart” and “ability to put things back together *** ” start with a Q-Bus VAX.  The number and types of Q-Bus boards is very large.

3) If you don’t have both genes,  start with a small MicroVAX 3100 or VAXstation equivalent. 

*** The gene for the ability to "have it work after you put it back together" is rare and hence optional.

Whatever you do, have a good adventure.
