Okay, heres a short little story...My art teacher gained possiesion of a Macintosh Classic one day, and had an idea, paint it! And, being an old Mac it is, he just painted it with normal water based paint (he also had some other students help him) all over, ports and screen included. Now, this machine has sat on a shelf for 2 years now, and I've been waiting for the chance to rescue the poor machine and resurect it. And finally, the chance has come! He left for another job, and the principle let me take it home, therefore liberating the poor neglected machine. I wiped off the screen, ports, and serial numbers, and plugged it in. *Bleep*! The machine powered up beutifally, no hitches what so ever. It has a 40MB hard drive, 2MB of RAM, and is running System 6.0.7. Folks, say hello to the newest member of my Mac family! I'm catching up!

Nah, everyday I looked at it, and it always seemed lonely and sad. Plus it never got used! Besides, it told me so. Shhh!

One of my 'friends' once found an SE that was painted red and had a great gaping hole in the side panel. Poor thing.
