Saw a very nice Minolta Maxxum 9000 in a Goodwill Store marked for $24.95. Very sad as it was really a great camera in it's day, and still would be a great camera if I was shooting film. As is I had no reason to buy it as I already had the 35-70 lens that was on it and have several old Maxxum film bodies gathering dust.

While I agree it is sad, I've managed to accumulate ~12 Minolta bodies (including a 9000 and 2  7000s) and 3 or 4 Konicas buying for the lenses.  I offered them to a camera shop for a nothing comission, didn't want them.  I finally found a photography teacher who wants them, I've got cheap lenses I can provide with most of them.  Sad to see once state of the art tech reduced to Goodwill.
