    Turn them into fish tanks and sell them to computer nerds.

    I personally like the fishtank idea. There are step-by-step instructions on instructables.com. Plus you can ebay off the extra parts you took out to make the tanks. Sincerely,

    FreeTheTV: Honestly, signing every post is aggravating the h3ll out of me. We all know who wrote the post. If anybody should forget, they can actually look at the top of the post and see who wrote it. Sincerely, stopit

    I apologize if the way that I write my post is aggravating you. If it bothers you that much, PM a mod or add me to your ignore list. I won't be hurt. But I'm not going to change the way that I write every single post from now on to fit the needs of one individual. I've been raised to sound professional, and if you are annoyed by me writing "Sincerely, [name]" at the end of my post, calm down. And while were giving advice to one another, try working on your ignorance and maybe start asking nicely. Most people learn that when they're, oh, say, seven. I'm not here for you to project your problems. Sincerely,
    FreeTheTV

    I looked up old coleco's on ebay before and they were selling for over $100. I bet the Tandy's could bring in some decent money as well.
