    I think ive got nearly 2000 8 track tapes. Probably 30 or so players although i dont remember how many actually work any more. I know ive got at least 8-10 players that work. 4 of which are quad compatible players. The 4 channel surround sound 8 tracks. Ive got probably 4 quad tapes. Used to have more of them but i sold the ones i didnt care for. Alot of quads have some value harder to find those. .. Some of the players i have youd be suprised that they even turn on let alone play tapes at all. The old magnavox i dug it out of the ground at a junkyard. Its all beat up. I took it apart and sprayed it with a hose outside. It was so full of mud and dirt. Left it dry for about a week. Got it hooked up stuffed a tape in it. It moaned a little then the motor shot out a pile of dust making all kind of noises but it cleared up. Still plays to this day. Not the best but the fact it works is suprising. Hard to adjust the components because every adjustment is bent. And track 4 the heads dont drop to 4 far enough so track 1-3 plays fine but 4 is a cross of 3 and 4. Havent got around to fixing that i just use my big panasonic as a regular player. I dont keep 8 track in the car much. Sunlight heat and the tape are not freinds.

    Yea, Photobucket is so much easier. I cleaned up the post, keeping the story line clean so to speak.

    8Track? I still have some of them somewhere around. John Denver, Boston, and others. No Player, just the 8tracks

    Oldsmibile didnt like having 75 radios in the trunk

    Then the ones i modified. I dont really go for aftermarket units unless its a really good tape deck and even then its questionable. I would put a chrysler infinity cassette deck in a chevy before an aftermarket. Those chrysler stereos are pretty nice. But they are a little too long so they dont fit right in gm

    Only reason i just been using it alittle. Rare radio 1982 only hard to find they changed the analog ones in 83 i wanted an analog am fm stereo and i found one and its in perfect order. Ive got piles of radios literally piles of them. I used to work at a junkyard nobody wanted the tape players but thats all i wanted. Ive got a collection of gm stereos along with other random stereos. 8 track players and all

    I may even have a Tape Deck or CD player I can sell you for cheap. They are out of a Pontiac, so they would have the grey facia, but they still go nicely..

    I even have a Pioneer 1.5 din that would go in there nicely

    Been awhile since i was on here. Finally getting some things done on the celebrity. Got a interior working on.

    Plus i had a little accident one day but lucky it just destroyed my dryrotted tire it didnt hurt the car far as i know. Still drives the same got it up at 207k miles now. And since the olds 98 is up and running well the celebrity has its chance for a big overhaul get her freshened up

    This car if something happens to it. Ill just never be the same without it. Been through a lot with her. 3 years 50k. Longest ive ever owned any car. Ive had a connection to this car since she found me. And i can say that. I wasnt looking for a car. Me and my buddy were at a garage. And another guy was loading it up. If i wasnt there that exact day at that exact time. This car would have ended up at a scrap yard. End of the line. But i saved her. Its just weird. Driving home with it. Even the seating position was perfect. Only to find out this seat doesnt adjust at all. And its perfect. Its got plenty of headroom for me. Almost 6 foot. Tall. The only thing im debating is carburetor or fuel injection now. And if i want to do a 5 speed swap or keep the 3 speed auto. And if the trand ever dies. Maybe go for a 4 speed auto. Since thats a simple swap. . these days im on the hunt for a good hood. Some miscelanious parts. And a paint job. Once rhe hood and rust is fixed. A paint job will make her look better. Then i gotta learn how to care for shiney paint.
    Hey Cody, I know how that goes! It's great to take something that others have given up on and make it worthwhile again. That's how several of my cars became into my possession. Notably, my 88 Ciera XC which was being used to drive around as a yard car on a junkyard!

    Taking care of shiney paint is not as hard as you think! Just a wax job a couple times a year is all it needs! It always is such a good feeling to drive around in a fresh, glistening glossy painted car!

I suppose in the case of the a-body car....it was my first *new* car, a '96 Century Limited. My wife and I logged over 150k on it, even taking it up to the mid-west. It's been sitting in the garage for the last 5 years, waiting for a transmission. I also have a '95, which has served as my daily driver for the last 9 years, although it too has been laid up a lot lately....

    Plan a trip to AL and bring that transmission here. We can make it work like new again!
