Polaroid SX-70

This weekend I found an sx-70 at a resale shop and when I got to the counter to pay they told me there were more 'parts' in the back.  The 'parts' included a carrying case, 4 flash units and an unopened 2 pack of film (expired in 1984)!!
Unfortunately, the film batteries are dead and totally worthless, but I have my camera that I have wanted for years and now I just have to find some 600 film to put in it, which will not be an easy (or affordable) task.
You can get newer Time Zero film online, but its very very expensive.  May do it as a one time thing though.  If I could create an image even remotely similar in tone to Neil Krugs work, or Emilie's, I would be a very happy camper.

Here's a little sx-70 Flickr Mosaic for ya:
