Win 2 Mustangs??? I only wanted
1 with an 8-track player or maybe
a Muntz 4-track.

Is this the start of
Car Wars for the 2 stations?
That went on for most of '65.
They were great promotions that would
have brought 1 station down because
of costs.

those 4 & 8-track tape players were all the rage back then with their "Vibrasonic" sound systems???

cannot recall all the times somebody or another would ask me to ride along with them to experience their latest tape cartridge purchase and be totally emersed inside a car's 'wall-of-sound', whoa!

fun days those were.

I have one in my office at work.
It's kind of a running joke.
People wanna hear and and I tell
em I miss all that wow and flutter.
You can really make it worse by
tilting the cartridge up and down.
They get a kick out of this relic.

Anybody ever own a Muntz 4 track?
They look like the fidelipacs in
radio stations. No pinch roller
built into the cartrige, unlike
the 8-track carts.
