I'm glad you saved them. I can't imagine there are too many around. I
have a Model 12 that has been "officially" upgraded to a Model 16B. Its
an interesting mix - Model 12 look, Model 16B workings. Last I checked
it wouldn't boot so that's a job for a rainy day on the bench.

Through the grapevine I heard about some computers that needed saving.
Anyway, I made the 1.5 hour drive to Montvale, NJ and this is what I got
for my effort:

3 TRS-80 model 12 computers, complete with keyboards.
2 Boxes of manuals
1 Box of miscellaneous 8" diskettes.

I know there isn't a lot of interest in the model 12, but it is one of
the very first computers I ever worked on. I'm glad that I was able to
find 3 of them in great shape.

If anyone knows of any of the "big iron" TRS-80/Tandy computers that
need rescuing, let me know. I've hauled them back to New Jersey from as
far away as Arkansas.
