G5 case to Mac Pro knockoff, maybe

This is just the beginning

Well, hi...
I never was a good writer.. nor enjoy writing stuffs, maybe it's because of my language problem

Currently i am working on my 1st mod and would like to share it when i am done.

He sold it for very little money.

Apple II board Rev A serial number 14

Cleaning out the basement i came across an apple II board that has never been used. It was in the box with the original letter for the last 2 decades - purchased from a supplier in New York.

The back of the board has wires! (that is what revision meant in those days)

Over the years, I've amassed tons of Apple II stuff as well as several Old-World Mac's. Some of it I simply must get rid of due to space limitations. All of it I hope may be put to good use and kept from the landfills. All of it is for sale.
