IIci find in Hilton Head, SC - anyone local to help out?


Recommended Posts

So, I may have accidentally bought an IIci complete setup without consideration for how to get it home. Let's put it this way, the deal was way too good to pass up, but the entire collection is currently sitting at the local USPS store in South Carolina (US) waiting for me to approve the ~$800 shipping costs or to come get the gear. Problem is, I'm about 7.5 hours away over in TN. I'm dealing with the automotive logistics for spending a day on the road to go get this, but was wondering if anyone was in the area that could help me out with logistics. If you're in the Hilton Head area and willing to store some gear for a week or so or better yet, willing to meet me a tad closer to TN, would you reach out to me? Pics of the find attached...

Watch out for this "sclements" guy. Totally shady. He keeps mailing me SE and SE/30 Ethernet cards for no reason at all, and I know there's a catch somewhere!

 

But seriously, Sam is a super good friend of mine, and a hoarder caretaker of vintage Macs. If you live anywhere near Hilton Head, SC and can help out, we'd appreciate it very much. This collection is currently sitting in a pretty volatile location where it could get thrown away before Sam can get to it.

I'm so sorry that I can't help with this, but it would take me 8 hours to get there (one way).  I also tried thinking of any relatives, friends, etc, but I don't think I know anyone in South Carolina anymore.

 

Please, folks, rack your brains, there has to be someone on this board that lives nearby and can help out. :-)

@Torbar - Hah!

 

So, I did just get back home - I left my place about 2A yesterday morning and became quite fatigued about 1.5 hours to the location at Hilton Head. Pulled over, took a nap, got up, made it to the haul and packed it up! Got about 2/3 of the way home, stopped for the night. Made the last of the trek home this morning! Haul includes:

Mac IIci

Dual page monochrome display

LaserWriter IIntx

Apple Scanner

Extended Keyboard

2 boxes of assorted things I haven't yet had a chance to go spelunking through

 

No yellowing on any of the plastic, no visible burn in on the display, printer includes a paper tray. Scanner was in the unlocked position, but the imager seems to still be in place. Im optimistic based on the condition of all of the gear that it's in good shape overall! I'm going to pull the board ASAP and get it's caps replaced (thanks @potatoFi in advance!) Let's see how many pictures I can add to the post. :)

I'm glad to hear that you made it!  Congratulations - everything looks shiny and new, including the Maxell battery.  It seriously looks new.  Weird.

The battery is decidedly suspicious. It looks fantastic along with the rest of the machine so I'm not sure if it didn't leak because it was plugged in this whole time or not. Regardless, it is out and bagged and dated. I'll see when/if it explodes. :)
