Every year I get stuck on some sort of cruiser fetish. Last year it was 40 A/C units. This year it got even weirder. I've managed to get hooked on Toyota 8-tracks. I have one in my 40 currently. So today this showed up on my doorstep. I think I'm just going to put it in the closet and hold out for the day I get my stock 40.

So what old school electronics do you hoard?

I have a cassette player in my 84. I pick cassettes at garage sales for pennies, one guy just gave me all he had.

Any ideas where you are going to get 8-tracks? They only lasted few weeks back in the day, it's hard to imagine any still survive.

that's too cool.

I would love to get my hands on some OEM Toyota stereo equipment, I'm happy for your score with that 8-track and future aspirations, Trollhole!

I just picked one of these up. Could you possible post up a picture of the wiring page in the manual, I am not exactly sure what hooks to what. Also do you have any pics of where these have been mounted? Guy I got mind from said it was on the left of the steering column.

I don't know if this counts as hoarding, but I'm still using the Panasonic boom box I bought in 1982 out in my garage. It's a nice unit, the speakers separate and there are I/O RCA jacks - so I've also got a late 90's Gateway PC speaker system running through it as well. 2 regular speakers, 2 tweeters, and a separate sub-type speaker - sounds great and still kicking....

Retro wow! Last 8-track I owned was in college in the late 70's!
