Good idea except for the fact that right now the back of MY vehicle is full of a nice white iron trundle bed that I picked up off of the curb 3 weeks ago and it's still rattling around in there waiting for me to find a couple of hours to shuffle more stuff in the garage in order to make space for it until the girls are both big enough to actually use it.


I'm going to the wedding with the wife and youngin's, and I think she might notice if I stopped off to load a console in the back of her mini van.


I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the 2 other consoles I have stashed at work before the new manager shows up and asks "what the hell are these doing here?"

Wish I had room for it right now... I'm driving right past there to go to a wedding on Saturday too...

The finials on the top of that cabinet are pretty unusual for something of this vintage.

Welcome Aboard!

Please post some photos of your consoles... we love pictures!

But there is not really a whole lot in that tuner that should/has to be replaced and the Amp is pretty basic.

It's for your own good ya know?

If someone in a pickup or Cadillac hits you while your driving that thing you might as well be on foot for all the "protection" that you might get from the cart.

Well I have to respectfully disagree with your disagreement!

While it's true that this is no AA5  It is still a relatively basic amp and tuner and there is nothing especially tricky about  it...  we all have to  start somewhere.

As for the changer I find the Garrards of this vintage to be quite straight forward, and certainly not "abysmal" to work on as you have stated.

Everything that Chris has laid out is a good start.

You should probably replace the caps in the speaker crossovers as well in order to get the best sound possible out of that unit.

The Garrard changers are among the easiest to do maintenance on. You should be able to find the service info in the downloads section.

Good luck and welcome aboard!

That sounds like a bargain to me!

I am a staunch CRT holdout as far as TV's go. Still have a 2002 vintage Sony 34" flat glass, HD WEGA model in the living room that I have repaired once. I just recently bought a 2006 version of this same TV as a backup for when this one finally kicks the bucket.

Yeah I know, who the hell stores a hulking 220lb spare TV?!  The answer is ME!

Looks to be in pretty good shape aside from the torn grill cloth.

Take a zero off the price and it might sell.

This one looks like it would be worth the drive... especially if you can convince them to drop the price!!

Well the civil defense markers on the dial mean it's absolutely no later than 63.

As for the changer IIRC if it was a 61 it would have a badge on the head of the tonearm that reads "Feather Touch"
