I did that! I had an early Sandy Koufax card and I used it on my bike. Who knew?

Let me guess, you graduated to loud headers for your cars in your early years. Possibly, you like a good growl now. Just guessin'

Don’t get me started on baseball cards. I had some good ones. My mother wasn’t happy that her daughter was a TomBoy and tossed my collection. It would have been worth a small fortune.

I grafted four 6 x 9 speakers into my little 1971 Mecury Capri, along with a 25 watt Equalizer. Heh!

It's wouldn't be worth that fortune if none of the mothers threw out the cards. And comic books. And some of our most favorite toys.

But were they Jensen's, with a woofer, midrange, and tweeter, all in one?

I had an 8-track player with my home audio setup, so I'll be staying on the lawn for now. LOL @ the "Burglar Alarm" feature.

Hmmm, if they only had a f'n REWIND function. Guess that was too high tech in those days.

I also loved the feature where they would split the song to allow the player to shift to the next track taking about 5-10 seconds.

Yeah, that was a great feature. This was one of my gems on 8-track.

Madman Muntz

A local service station installed these beasts back in the '60's. They did a pretty good job until they got to the speakers mounted in the doors. They cut through the vapor barrier, so when it rained, the water that ran down the windows soaked the speakers. Heh!

What did the "contour" function do? I don't remember ever seeing that.

You got me. Maybe it was a combo treble/bass control?

Oh I just found this description:

The contour makes your mid frequencies more scooped and it's often called “a low budget EQ”.

No idea what "scooped" means though. Maybe a few of the geezers around here know? I wonder whether that's a term that might refer to a V shaped sound.

Then run the "scooped" audio through a Vibrasonic.

Haha, oh wow. Adding reverb to radio audio playback in the old days. It's essentially an amplifier so I guess that makes sense (or not).

I installed quite a few Vibrasonics back in the day.
