The old Timex computers had z-80 (or 81).

I wish I still had my old Timex Sinclair computer.

I still have a TI 99-4A, though.

Here's a thought to use on more modern computers. Personally I would not go back to antiquated hardware when there are plenty of faster, more capable machines around- often found with the curbside garbage.  From https://tails.boum.org/index.en.html

 Tails is a live operating system that you can start on almost any computer from a USB stick or a DVD.

It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to:

    use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship;
    all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network;
    leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly;
    use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.

While I rarely use it to go online other than for occasional updates, it is fully functional offline.  Handy to create documents safely and store encrypted with Veracrypt.  Find a 'junk' computer, remove the hard drive (along with it's operating system, any infections, spyware etc.) and just run off your USB stick.  If concerned about the TOR network going down there's an 'unsafe browser'
 that doesn't go through TOR.  It's also handy to boot a work computer from and watch a movie leaving no traces of what you did behind :)

of course, if shtf and society collapses, what need will there be for a computer? hows it it going to get power? will there be anything left to connect to?
