A little interesting thing has just come up on ebay.
Dick Van Dyke's A4000T
He will even autograph it if you want.
Cant say you see that on ebay very often. :)
Its currently $50 with a Xsurf, toaster/flyer and is powered by a 68040.

Just a little heads up, Im not the guy selling it. ;-)

Maybe Chitty Chitty Bang Bang needed a quick patch and the A4000 case was the only piece of metal to hand

Worth a bid, though I know I will get outbid.

Q: Mr. Van Dyke can you talk about your interest in computer animation?

    Dick: It started out as a hobby about 15 years ago when Amiga first came out with a little machine that would actually do animation and I’ve been doing it ever since. Now I have a room full of equipment and I’m struggling to keep up with technology, but it’s an addiction. It is so much fun. I’ve gotten pretty good. I’ve been actually offered a job as an animator and I realize the minute there’s a deadline, the fun’s over. So I can play as long as I want to with it and I have some good stuff in there, but I’ve never sold any or even showed any of it.

Is this real and for-true? Wow, that's a pretty cool new piece of Amiga trivia. I'm really amazed that the side of the case is missing though.

Q: Would you sell it?

    Dick: Would I sell it? No, I wouldn’t. I don’t think I’d sell it. I’m not that good. You look at this movie and you have a long way to go.

Dick van Dyke was a huge proponent of the Amiga.  I read somewhere that he even created an effect in Lightwave of a motorcycle explosion for a TV show he was acting in (when the in house effects company couldn't do it due to budgetary contraints).
