You can if you want, because the rest of us are becoming suspicious. It's ok, you just need to be true to yourself, and Kip.

My older brothers had 8-t players, car and home. Listened to a lot of early sixties/seventies tunes on those things - listened until the tapes would go "waaahooh waaaahooh waaahooh" when the tapes wore or stretched or whatever they did.

Yeah I had a Muntz 4-8 track variable player in my 63 Galaxie. Flip of a switch it would either play 8 track or 4 track.

I remember them well! I had a Muntz 4-8 and replaced it with a Craig/Pioneer 8 track. It was a massive 12 WATTS! That was a lot of power back in those days. Later on, I got a Hitachi QUADRAPHONIC! Anybody remember these???

I had a Panasonic Quadrophonic AM/FM/ 8 Track in 1971. I gave it to my younger brother some years later and he still uses it for his garage radio. Still have the 8-Track tapes somewhere.

My first car was a '67 Mustasng fastback that I saved up for and bought (still have the car). It had a 8 track and the best tape I had was Jimmy Page before Zeplin. I still have it some where but no means of playing it. I remember having to wedge stuff under or over the cartridge to make it play right.
