Fluxie:
An 8 track was once, one of the best, it replaced a couple things.
It's hard to find them anymore, let alone one that still works.

Hope this helps....

"It's hard to find them anymore, let alone one that still works."

And, if you find one, it's almost impossible to find a matchbook to jam under the tape to get it to track right.

Default 8 Track

I have two, one is the factory am/fm/8track in my mustang and yes it still works fine. In fact I have a couple tapes left to play in it too. AND I have a old Craig 8 track underdash unit that still works and get this it has a switch on the back to play QUADRAPHONIC tapes! And I have ONE of those too. Somehow now I feel old....

Ah yes, the matchbook thingy. Also remember how much fun it is to go from track 1 to 2 to 3 to 4..over and over. Banging away on the buttons.
Of course the Quad. Can music ever sound as good again?
I remember the headaches I use to get from Quads and how I use to set up the speakers to get the best sound. Sometimes adjusting a couple times during the same track.
How did we get so far off track?
Thank goodness we did.

If ya'll keep this up I will have to post a picture of my genuine MacIntosh Solid State Stereo amplifier. Did you know that that thing has a power transformer that weighs 38 lbs? hmmm, I bet you could convert it to a welder if you tinkered with it.
