Default OT My "new" Philco radio

Since me and my wife both have ipods and iphones, I decided to convert an old radio that was in the house to mp3. Basically I tore it all apart, cleaned and polished it. Then I bought some JBL speakers for a laptop and mounted them inside. Ran the cable out the back and voila instant MP3 compatible old radio.

Default Re: OT My "new" Philco radio

I'm working at a friend's shop, and for the last week or so my principal focus is on a couple's `38 Plymouth business coupe. I've been reassembling the front suspension (dual leaf, sort of straight axle and brakes). Tuesday, the owners came in and the guy's wife, who is in charge of the paint selection (factory tan with deep red wheels..yawn) suddenly asks, "Could you paint flames on the front of the car?"

Oops, sorry if I hijacked your thread. Um, I think it runs a Philco radio.
