IMHO it doesn't need to be "superbly classic".  Maybe it's not "ventage" 
per-say.  (I don't know if there is a definition for "ventage" in 
computers.  Last I knew, for automobiles, they had to be 25 years or 
older to be called "ventage".)

I'm betting that there are people that would like to have it.

Look at things like IBM PCs / XTs / ATs.  They were common "just old" 
things 5 ~ 15 years ago.  Now many of those common things are gone and 
now people are wanting them.  So, even "common" things that are (were) 
"just old" can have a surprising fan base.

I'm on the look out for a reasonably priced (purchase and S&H 
independently) multi-processor Pentium Pro machine (for reasons).  I 
hardly doubt that qualifies as "classic", much less "superbly" so.  I 
see ebay listings of people selling of the bare CPUs for scrap in daily 
saved searches.  Or I see old spare motherboards sans VRMs, or otherwise 
incomplete systems.

I think there is a market for "just old" / "classic" / "superbly 
classic" equipment.

I'll go back in my house now that I've yelled at kids on my lawn.  ;-)
