So yah, this was actually being thrown away by a convenience store owner, but he had it at his house. I saw it while delivering pizza, and asked if he was tossing it. It's about 300 pounds, so I had to get a friend to help me lift it into my little Focus. The guy thought there was no way it would fit in a Focus. He was very, very wrong.
Tomorrow (err I mean today, since it's closing in on 0300), if all goes according to plan, Jon and I will be breaking it down, experimenting, and seeing if it works and how it works. I don't plan on setting it up for actual use, or activating it. When I'm done playing with it and maybe writing some articles on it, I'll probably refurbish it and try to sell it for local pick-up. If that doesn't work, I'll gut it, sell the parts on eBay and haul the sheetmetal carcass to a recycling center.
More pics once I have the thing unloaded and/or disassembled.
