Here is another one:

In 2006, Nelson Nameplate Company (now Nelson-Miller) gave their
L9000 to Sellam Ismail at Vintagetech.com.  He already had an
L7000 and was anxious to add the L9000 to his collection.  Nelson
had wanted to donate it to a 501(c)(3) institution, but nobody
was interested.

They bought it in 1975, and it was in daily use in their billing
department until November 2005.  They certainly got their money's
worth out of it!

Amusing side note: The repair guy who kept it running for many
years had the unfortunate name of Slobodan Milosevic.  He preferred
to go by simply "Dan".  :-)
