A New (Stupid) Mod

Eric, thats really cool!  I simply use a Garmin GPS with Bluetooth for my phone, and the wired cassette adaptor for the iPod. Not the most streamlined or elegant solution, but works well, and i want to keep the car stock.

I still have to repair it…found some splicing kits, going to take the plunge and redo it myself. What sucks is that I *could* just buy another 8-track. The miser in me just can't let something with a simple, low-cost fix just sit there.

But yes, Destroyer will be playing this summer. ;)

Very cool. And my mother yells at me CONSTANTLY about refusing to part with the simplest of items because "I can fix it I just need a little of this and a little of that and some time to sit and mess with it". I'm  proud of it!!!

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.
