Two old-school Minolta Maxxum 7000i bodies with multiple old-school lenses, flashes, etc that I bought back in like, 1985.  They have been sitting in the closet for quite some time.  Can’t bring myself to sell them on ebay.  Man, I saved up all my money from a summer job to buy that camera.  It’s kind of disheartening to know I might only get $50 for it on ebay so ……I will hang on to it until I can think of something to creative to do with the kit.
