Ditto to all that and everyone walked to school my first auto tape was a 4 track looked like a full size VCR mounted under the dash and didn't sound to good either. Wish I could go back and do it all again those were the days!

You guys are kids. I listened to radio before rock an roll and we used to sit around every night to stories of the Shadow,Amos and Andy and others. My first car was a used 1950 Chevy. Paid $50 for it and sold it for $50. First new car was a 64 1/2 Mustang. THAT"S OLD.

The B & W tv's we had you always had to adjust the knobs to keep the pic from rolling. We got 2 local channels. We also had a multi-band tube type radio that had a wooden cabinet and was the size of a juke box.
