There are a number of long-standing fans here as well (I am not among them unfortunately) who are always happy to tell us youngsters what it was like trying to collect Lego before the internet and so on. :-)
Also, have you asked on other Lego forums? They all have different histories to tell - there have occasionally been inter-forum rivalries etc, and it would be a good idea to get both sides of the story.
P.S.- If you know anyone who might be interested, tell them to hit me up;)
I might also try the Bricklink forum if I wasn't afraid that the internet would eat me.
