In the next couple of months I'll be making a trip to within a half hour drive of
there. I've already contacted the seller to see if they could store that VAXStation II
for up to a couple of months so that I could pick it up on my drive there. It's a 350
mile trip from where I live, but it would go great with the MicroVAX II (without graphics)
in a BA23 chassis that I picked up late last year from about 15 miles away from this
VAXStation II. I'd really like to have a nice BA123 chassis system. It looks like
that one should clean up pretty well.

Subject: [cctalk] VAXstation II GPX on ePay
I wouldn’t normally post anything on eBay, but this looks like something someone should
grab. I’ve no clue who the seller is, it’s in Massachusetts.
DEC Digital Equipment Corp VaxStation II GPX system with boards & T K70 untested
It is currently at $300. It could also be converted to a PDP-11 with the right boards.
My PDP-11/73 started life as a MicroVAX II, and the BA123 is a great chassis. Of course
it’s big and heavy.
