Upon seeing @bunnspecial's picture posted here, https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...-macs-than-i-do.1816059/page-10#post-24381266, I had a great idea of starting a thread showing off our PowerPCs (and 68ks) out and about in the world. I know @eyoungren often posts pictures of taking his PowerBooks to coffee shops. Personally, I find it awesome to see our trusty companions in use out our homes and in the outside world.

I'll start:


Here is my SE going for a ride in my trunk on the way home from picking it up (of course I packed it back up into it's bag when I started moving ;) )

Ohh. I'm part of this. Back when I owned my 1998 GMC K1500 ECSB I drove to Reno, picked up two G5 towers (2GHz and 2.3GHz) and two G4 Cubes. @bunnspecial owns both Cubes now.

Dual 1GHz QuickSilver that @bunnspecial also owns now.

Picking up my first G5 2.7GHz, had to make sure it was tucked in nicely. Only had my truck/drivers license for a few weeks, this was the first PPC I hauled in this thing.

And picking up my G5 Quad in my 03 Ram 2500.

Or this Studio Display I picked up from a College Dumpster and decided to let it play rolly-polly in the bed of my truck. Still works great!

I used my PowerBook G3 PDQ today for writing a paper for class while at home. TextEdit!

I haven't taken any of my macs out of the house but now I know the cultural importance of photograph/videoing the event when I find them.


That and I really need to buy a PPC laptop of some sort so I can take it places & take its picture. So where did your ppc go today?
