    I really like anything that does what it says it will. I bet it would have great filters that puts up a strong wall against noise and bleed over. I will wait for the Trump 2020 model.

    I think we should all get one of those sweet ass skull knobs and put it on our favorite radio.

    That thing is gonna look sweet on my Spark-o-matic cassette deck, hope it’s available in orange lighting.

    Would look killer on an 8-track.
    Or better yet, a 4-track! Remember those?

    I made the mistake of loaning my brother $140.00 to buy a 4 track for his 1963 Impala convertible. Took me 18 years to get my money back and didn't get and simple interest for my trouble. That was the last time I loaned him any money at all.

    I am too young to remember a 4 track but I do know of this 8 track that you speak of. I do however know of record players that used to be in cars and this thing called VibraSonic Stereo.

    I had one of those Quadraphonic sound systems in my car and music formatted for it was hard to come by. Santana Abraxis had a tune in which the drums would go around the car.

    I wish I had one, very rare to find. I never owned one of course nor have I ever heard one but my father did. I’d like to get it for him but time is running out I’m afraid.

    Maybe I’ll see one at the Rod Run this year?

    The drum solo in Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was my go-to tune to make my Ranger 8-track and four little piddly wedge speakers sound halfway decent. (y)

    Had one just like that in a Blue Ford truck that we used to work all over Texas in.....Foghat ~ Stone Blue got stuck and you either listened to Stone Blue or road noise. Those days were fun.
