Sure! I don't "collect" them as much as resell them, or I used to
when there was supply and demand. Not much demand now, and I'm not
seeing them like I did a few years ago when they were being replaced
at businesses and universities.
I have a Web page of Sun and SGI stuff at:
But I myself have parted out most of what I used to have, except the
very oldest systems. I have a few of the 3/ series single-board
systems that I'll get back to and review next year. They are
interesting from sheer age and processor - as you posted, they are 68K
based systems. A few years ago I sold a very old Multibus based Sun
system, very early, to someone in Europe who still writes to tell me
his progress on it.
The UltraSPARC stuff should be running as it's only a decade old. If
you want some SPARCstation 10 parts, contact me, I think I have a box
of pulled parts for which you must pay shipping plus something.
