Laugh at the vinyls but they will be around when your CD's, which have a life expectancy of 50 years, is gone, erases, corrupted. I think CD-R's have a life expxtancy of 10-15 years.
Digital is a great medium for exact reproducibity but as you all know, hard drives and floppys go bad after a while.

I wonder how they made that work? Seems like records would be, oh, I dunno... SCRATCHED by the moving parts as you bounced along down the road?? I've seen this idea before though in a couple of different variations.

This one actually looks kinda cool, like a primitive CD player - the pictures I've seen before were of units that were more like a home record player, where you lift up the top to change the record, not slide it in.

The cars back then were so big, you barely felt the road. They didn't sell too many though, never seen one except in pictures.

They also sold VINYL video discs in the late 70's, who remembers those.

My first car actually had an 8-track stereo. It was a 1977 Cadillac, and we're talking 1994, so it was a just a little out of date. But it was fun for awhile, I got some vintage stuff like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Steely Dan and we would blast the 8-track.

Analog will ALWAYS for the rest of time sound better than digital. Real audiophiles know that digital is crap compared to a true analog signal. That's why they still sell $15,000 turntables. Digital is a whole lot cheaper and the music industry makes a lot more money off of it.
