Default Cobra garage vintage stereos

Couldn't let this post of Alfa02's go past without a comment (ie a picture)

Here's some of my garage art....

OK, so it's not a stereo, but it's "garage art" in my non-humble opinion.

Expecting comments from Tom

Glen, my friend, if you think I'd come up with some Smart A$$ remark you may be disappointed Those are "Works of Art" and if they make you happy just looking at them and if they make noise so much the better I collect (Sansui G-series receiver's and Luxman Components) and I'm a buyer for either, just in case anyone finds them (@ Garage sales, Auctions, etc) My vintage stereos just happen to look beautiful, and sound great. The warmth of the lights, the power meters needles dancing, and the sound that the old pieces reproduce have to be heard, you can close your eyes and be one with the music Just like our Cobras, at static display, the lines are all correct, not a fender out of place, then you add sound, smell, g-forces, and not many other cars come close, to what we have Cheers Buddy, Tom.

I inherited several vintage radios over the years. From an old Atwater Kent 627 with pedestal, brings back great memories. My friends would ask if it got modern channels, my dad would light it up and try to find the Beatles, my friend thought that was Fab! I have a bunch of others from the 40s through the early 60s. One is an Zenith battery powered table top from the early 30s. Some one long ago pilfered the insides, but the front is there, switches, cloth speaker grill, but the Z needle is broken off, but I can fix that! Recently, I have seen where people use their satellite radios, and use Bluetooth to connect their speakers, and some use vintage radios to hide the speakers, I think that is what I will do, get a yellow led for the diel, pretty Fab if I do say my self!
