   Heh.  It's in a thrift store in San Antonio TX.  There's a price tag 
on it, and that's it.

   I don't particularly want it.  Wait, let me rephrase that.  Unless a 
PET can commit an unnatural act while humming Bolero, I particularly 
don't want it.  :)  However, if someone else does, it's at Goodwill 
Computer Works (thanks, Mark!) on IH410.  I'll be back down there Monday 
the 19th, so if anybody wants it reeeaaaallly badly, I could be 
persuaded to nab it and ship it.

   They also had a stack of very clean Apple IIgs boxes for $15.  the 2 
that I looked in had memory expansion, nothing else.

   The PET's really outside my scope of interest, so I didn't look at it 
that closely.  I think the tape drive was sitting a little skewed, but 
didn't notice any obvious wear on the keyboard, or damage to the screen 
or case.
