You do find the occasional item on CL. I think a lot of the people who
were frequenting the *.forsale newsgroups that are now pretty much dead
are turning to CL to avoid ebay. Probably the most exotic thing I've
seen so far is a Canon Cat. Ads for things like old Atari's,
Commodores, i.e. your more common classic items are not that uncommon.
There was a person trying to sell their 5150 IBM PC, but it was the
newer MB and had a 10GB hd installed, but they were still asking several
hundred dollars (IIRC ~$400-$500). Even after I emailed them they still
continued to post it at that price. So generally I'd say that it's
worth keeping an eye out, esp since the prices _generally_ are better
