Too late, Paul. You're ALREADY the best at something. You're the best pool bull-chitter in the world! 😁
Pearl still has her Black & White Zenith console TV from back in the late-50s (or early 60s) up in the attic. It has the "Flash-Matic Tuning" and everything works just like new. But watching things in black & white is a real drag. Color TV put those old boxes to bed for good. Still, it would probably fetch a tidy sum of cash if she decided to sell it. But that won't happen. She hangs onto everything as if she wants it all stuffed into her pyramid after she's gone. A regular Pharaoh she is. Here's a console a lot like hers.Well, at least "the Judge" had some grunt to go with it's "design by decal" looks. I recall the first one I saw, also Orange, and thinking...well, not favorably about it's looks. Best looking GTO for my eyes? '65. Hands down.
Sure did enjoy that inventions video. A kid today probably wouldn't have a clue what they are, but I still have hundreds of Music cassettes, made from borrowed and my own LP vinyl. I always used high bias tape, so they all still play well in my old nakamichi deck. I still play 'em from time to time. Remember making them to "preserve" the vinyl...also the fun of making mix tapes for road trips, etc.
Yes, it has a deep, rich tone. Music sounds great on it, if you don't mind watching bands in black & white.One thing I noticed was the speaker grilles on that old Zenith...bet it delivers beautiful sound...far better than the itty bitty standard flat screen TV speakers of today...with the sound worse than comes from an old transistor radio.
