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:",
