I honestly don't have a good idea of what defines a "large" VAX. Buses

If the intention is to avoid a huge list then excluding MicroVAXes and
VAXstations should produce a list of VAXen
that you probably cannot easily simply carry home on the bus.
That would unfortunately exclude the VAXstation 8000, which is pretty
rare AFAIK. It would also exclude the VAXstation I,
which I imagine is also relatively rare these days.
I don't think you can easily come up with a simple set of criteria based
on power connectors or buses or similar.
Perhaps "too big to hug" is what you really want :-)
Or maybe we should start by asking what would the purpose of the list
be. Once that has bee figured out, I'm sure we can come up with some
criteria, or explicit list of models to include...
My reason for doing a registry is to figure out who many are still out
there and provide a somewhat central location for owners to find other
owners. I have a non-running 750, so I figured that I would get some
benefit from this as well. I don't have time to track this list as much
as I would like, so I often miss 750 discussions that happen here.
