Wow, the t-bird have a "x-ray shield" :cool: 950 GHz sounds like it should be glowing in the blue-white range...

On the serious side, are the Commadore disk drives hard to come by these days? I know it's very close to impossible for me to find a disk drive for the EPSON PX-8 I just purchased. On one site, the guy said it took him 17 years to find one! I believe that one now.
