That's great!  Is there any reason why they aren't willing to donate ALL
of the 11s to the museum?  Don't they *like* getting more of a writeoff?

Then the musuem could sell off the ones they don't need, just as other
charities accept donations of automobiles and sell or auction them.
That way the museum gets more machines for their collection, AND some
additional revenue.

It seems like it would be a win/win situation for everyone.
