I think that the Apple II+, TRS80, 5150, etc.  were MUCH too numerous for 
meaningful results - your sample is going to remain much too small a 
percentage of the total population.

Apple 1, and even Altair, are a much more finite number, and certainly 
easier to keep track of.

In spite of the potential futility, it should be interesting.  It also 
puts you in a great position to facilitate sales, trades, etc.
Howzbout: include a field in the record about what kinds of buy/sell/trade 
offers the owner WANTS to be contacted about?  ("want more of the same", 
"will sell in the range of $20,000", "looking for following boards:",
