New Cars and CD Players
« on: February 25, 2016, 08:02:45 PM »
Heard on the radio today that more and more new cars are being sold without CD players ...
that the CD player is becoming an option you must add on rather than a standard component of many new cars.
The times they are a-changin'.

I wonder if in-car cassette players will become an option again...  ;D

Perhaps the new standard player in cars will be for 12 inch vinyl   ;D

The reason for all this is to prevent those idiots who play gangster rap through a 10,000 watt subwoofer and wake up the whole neighborhood at night.   ::)

Although now they can just use their iPod instead.  :'(

Remember those days when people would break into your car to steal your CDs?

Lord, I miss those days.  :o

Haha. Our car was broken into a few years ago and the thieves DIDN'T steal Hidden CD, by Parks (Infraction). I was actually kind of offended! The police dusted the darn thing too!
