There's only four gears? Wait hold up. I just caught that. Is that a fucking record player in a car?!! Is this real?

Holy shit it's real. Man, this is fucking cool, lol.

It’s not so much the fundamentals of algebra that is taught, but I like to think it taught me problem solving in a logical manner, and logic it’s self.
It's just meant in jest for sure. Not a dig to those that are clearly smarter and can clearly math better than i ever could dream of.

Those that can't math just blame algebra.

When I worked for the Blue Death Star (at&t) our Motorola rep schooled me on these. Victrola was the record player for your home. Motorola started as a company producing radios.

My dad started installing and repairing car radios and all the accessories in 1941, his was the only Delco authorized repair shop in Connecticut for many years. It was quite the education growing up.

I legit thought it was some photoshop or joke. Was too fixated on trying to read the numbers on the shifter. Thought maybe it's what an 8track player is, didn't even register when someone said "record".

I've used a record player before and remember it being delicate, the arm bar thing but how does it not skip when the vehicle is in motion?

We used to have demolition derbies with those in a friend's basement. Fire them up and run them straight at each other to see them crash. Good fun.

You asking me? Cuz I'm only useful to you from cassette tapes and cd's in cars lol.

I just googled the yellow sony walkman player I had for CD's - used, $15.

Sony tape player? Hundreds of dollars used, wtf? Even found one that's still sealed and they asking for 50k.

I've only seen pics of 8 track cartridges before the coming of cassettes. I've got a cassette player upstairs somewhere with some metal BASF tapes.

I've seen it. In the movie Joe Dirt.

All kidding aside, I'm not sure if I've ever held one. Googled it and looks like Nintendo cartridges lol.

My first car had an 8 track player and I updated it to a cassette a year or so later.

The 1966 Mustang was the first car factory equipped with an 8 track. Mercedes had the first factory cassette player in 1971 supposedly.

Philips offered the first non oem cassette player in 1968 prior to any auto manufacturer putting them in cars-

IIRC you recently became interested in the rock band Boston (music thread)? I actually owned one of their albums on 8-track. I guess that qualifies me as being relatively old.
