    Re: Letís have some wipe out

    Mine was a 4 door and painted blue, it had the old 396 4 bbl, but the transmission was shot and all of the rubber under the hood was just about gone when I got it. Lots of work and money pumped in before I got rid of it..........Jetspray

    Re: Letís have some wipe out

    I think itís why cassettes were such great hit they were actually a miniature reel to reel. I bought one of the very first 8 track recorders from Tandy corporation. Man I use to make lot tapes for people especially my dad. He loved that country and western station KEAP out of Fresno and KRAK out of Sacramento. I loved the great rock songs from KYNO Fresno...

    Oh yeh I had a reverb unit too. Made music sound like an echo chamber. It was cool! Music by the ventures really sounded good with reverb.
