Sorry 'bout da highjacking Fester.
KInda getting back to the original topic:
No current stereo but I still remember my first one. A Kraco eight track I hung under the dash and two little wedge speakers on the back shelf. It was the spring of 1968, I was 16 at the time and after installing it I drove over to Penny's house to take her for a ride and listen to some CCR. cool
We're still riding .....

Heard there wuz a Rukus over here, so glad I came on over. Saw the word Kraco, LMAO!! Catfish thanks for the Belly laugh this morning. I had a swap meet Kraco 8 track too! It hung under the dash of the $250 '65 Impala. Then an upgrade in the 1972 VW Squareback sedan to a Realistic cassette tape deck from Radio Shack. Little Billy would be bouncing around, listening to the Eagles, singing along to Hotel California, belting out, "Such an Ugly Face, Such an Ugly Face!"

"Now Billy..." grin He really liked The Six Dollar Man too!

I put my first stereo in my new 1975 Chevy Van G20. I was using the stock AM Radio that came with it, the stock dash speaker that was installed in the middle of the dash from the factory. I used this for the first two years. Then I started my interior finish with carpet everywhere and a bed in the back. I added a partition between the bed and the sliding door and installed 6x9 speakers on each side facing the front and a cassette player behind the drivers seat that could be adjusted from the drivers seat. The first album I played was Lyin eyes by the Eagles in stereo and it was an awesome experience to hear that while driving down the highway.
