  1. I bought a 1966 GTO in 1974. I bought it from the original owner who had a baby and wanted a 4 door car. I traded him a 64 Bonneville and $300 for it. Drove it for a year and then it got stolen. I loved that car!
  2. I was working at the largest airplane company in the USA and the discount was about the same. I'm now retired and don't get that discount so this is good to know. I'm a Navy veteran (I was on the shitty kitty....Kitty Hawk) so this is the discount I'll be using now. Love my Macs!
  3. I didn't know that Apple had a veterans discount but just searched and found this: https://www.apple.com/shop/browse/home/veterans_military
  4. I think it's this link: https://www.cultofmac.com/715515/2019-macbook-pro-refurb-discount/

  6. I've had a couple of those and there are a few variations. It does appear to be a L518. Take a look at the schematic link below. It uses a few different tubes. Test them all. They can all be found on that auction site at fair prices. I'd recommend replacing all of the electrolytic caps, especially the power supply filter caps. They are found in the cardboard tube as seen in your pic. No need to remove the old ones. Just disconnect them (C12A and B) and add new modern caps. The cardboard tube will have the cap values printed on it. They don't always match the schematic because of revs during production. http://www.nostalgiaair.org/Resources/607/M0025607.htm
  7. A really strange thought provoking movie, "The History of Time Travel" https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3727120/ https://glitternight.com/2019/05/14/the-history-of-time-travel-2014/
  8. I've used the Novus products in conjunction with a polishing pad. I've had scratches so bad that I needed to use 400 grit sandpaper all the way to 2000 grit. It came out nice but I'm no expert at it by any means. I've since come to the conclusion that if it looks ok from 10 feet away I'm happy. A few years ago a guy on CL did cover polishing. I used him once and not sure how he did it but it looked like new when he was done. I tried to coax the technique out of him but I could tell he was not going to give it up.
  9. What is that medal shown in the first picture?
