My $100 car stereo that had a ipod controller, an aux in, a usb port an sd card slot and a cd/data cd player.
So fucking cool was this radio that you could RIP CDs from the cdplayer to the usb stick or sd card. For $100. Oh and it did bluetooth for hands free phone conversations. And had a remote.
Well fast forward to this year, I'm not sure I've outdone myself, but this $120 monster is pretty impressive too.
It plays DVDs in widescreen HD.
ON MY FUCKING CAR STEREO.
As such it can play anything you can shove onto a DVD, mp3's (8 gigs worth) or a movie or pile of movies in mpeg format. It's got a video out so you can plug in an external monitor (for the back seat for example) and a video IN so you can plu a camcorder into it to use as an external monitor.
And the bluetooth connection allows it to get audio from whatever source (like my phone) so I can play content on my phone through my car speakers.
This shit is banannas.
I have had a Pioneer headunit in my SUV for four years or more now that I love. It's clean, has few stupid flashy effects, iPod cable in the glove box, etc.
Anyway I think the coupling capacitors between preamp and poweramp are going. It's sounding wonky lately. Might need a replacement soon.

its probably a descent source for spare parts, but most probably the chassis isn't straight anymore..
I once had a replacement engine from a Kadet (similar to pontiac) that had skidded on a railroad crossing... the car didn't look bad or such, just two flat tires and some blobs but the chassis was that much bent that it wouldn't go straight anymore.
The engine ran real good ;-)
then I quit car driving.
OK... last time I'm posting this here before going to teh craigslist and newspaper
*1981 Suzuki GS750
*"wind jammer" front-end
*Needs work (stator, regulator (rectifier), and battery)
(meaning you take it as it is, not running well or at all)
(meaning I fix the stator, regulator, and battery, and get it running)
The stipulation on the whole thing is: I can't deliver it outside of the Rapid City, SD area, so most of the UCG crew would have to take a trip if you want it.
If I don't have any takers from here, I'll be posting it elsewhere.
Just thought I'd give you guys first shot if you wanted it.
Tell us what model DVD player you got, maybe I'll put one in our minivan.

whew. there was a stack of plastic tubes for construction works und the highway bridge of the a57 northern of cologne.
somebody set them on fire last nite.
black smoke have zero sight for the motorists, about a dozend cars & trucks crashed, 1 died.
due to the temparature the reinforced concrete bursted in several places; they were afraid of the bridge colapsing, so they had to pull off the crashed vehicles off from thehigway by belts & pushing by hand.
maybe it was just a dropped cigarette... an expansive one.

I put it in my gti, and 2 days later when I took the car out for the first time with the new radio, the timing chain snapped. So I have about 10 minutes of actual experience with this radio.
I took it back out before I sold the car, but I don't see buying another car any time soon so I expect it will be sitting in a box for a long time.
So, my attempts to sell my 1981 Suzuki GS750L have all failed.
Does anyone know where I can get a Stator, Regulator, and Battery for that bike for CHEAP? The cheapest I've found for the set is close to $300 before shipping
