May "sound" funny ... but I actually like the nostalgic OEM set-up ... AM/FM with the crappy (compared to what you can get today) speakers.

First time I actually drove her around the block ... got in car ... tuned radio to "a" station (I say "a" because I have NO idea of radio stations anymore ... its all iTunes and Sirus .. lol) ... Led Zep's Black Dog begins ... and as I turn her back to house ... AC/DC "Back in Black" .... poetic .... what we listened to "cruising" when we were teenagers ... driving around in my buddies Gremlin ...  :roflsmiley:

"I cant drive 55" is a good one for me.
But my original am-fm stereo radio doesnt stay on tune very well. Shut the door or hit a bump and it tends to change.
Dont quite remember that in the old days. Maybe need to have it gone over. Im guessing the operating cords are giving up.

Well if you want to go retro 70's in your car; then you've got to have Deep Purple, Machine Head in your car.
