Collection of Old Apple Macs

We are moving house and eldest son has returned home to rationalise his 'stuff'. Here is his description ...

My collection of old Macs has been languishing in the attic for a few years and really should go. I have one each of: Beige G3 Power Mac 9600 with Sonnet G3 accelerator and CD writer MultiSync 15av display Classic Classic II SE SE FDHD SE/30 with Ethernet card

Also a bunch of keyboards, mice, assorted cables and manuals, a genuine Apple carrying case, and a box of spare internal hard discs.

All but the Classic were working perfectly when last used five years ago. I plugged them in and there appears to have been a bit of attrition while in storage – currently they are as follows:

G3: powers on, but no hard disc is installed 9600: boots into System 9.2.2, but appears to be unstable – the accelerator card may need re-seating Display: powers on, good picture Classic: no logic board installed, good for parts Classic II: no startup chime, and screen shows vertical bars – bad power supply? SE: boots into System 6, seems just fine SE FDHD: "Sad Mac” error, codes 0000000E and 00005200 – bad logic board? SE/30: no display or startup chime – bad power supply?

Looking at the failure types, I would imagine that some of them may be repairable, or a "Frankenstein’s Mac” could be cobbled together out of a couple of the broken ones, but I don’t have the time to do so. Or you could just make aquariums out of them. Your choice.
