      Not vintage.

      Just because you're using S-100 does not mean it's vintage. It's
      *possible* that in 1987 some S-100 company still around could have made a
      processor card with what would have been the cutting edge processor of the
      day, but it would not have been "vintage" 1987 stuff.
