I gathered these up here and there and the Lasonic was a gift from the wife. Besides the Lasonic, I have roughly $32.00 in these. All work and have functional radios, lights and cassette players. They are nothing super special, but not bad for roughly 6 months of yard sales and flea markets....

Hell of a pile for the little cash you have into them.
Nice job hunting them down.

Thanks! The hunt is the fun part! You never know what you will find. Rather not spend a ton of cash unless its one of those "gotta have" pieces.

Great collection for such a small outlay, if I had that kind of luck I'd be out on the prowl every day hunting for bargains like these.

Thank! Oops, I just realized I posted in the Walkman section... Yeah, mostly being in the right place at the right time and dumb luck. And being really cheap helps. Like I mentioned in another post, they are something i want, not need, so I will just haggle to get the price down or just walk away. I got the Magnavox for free because I asked them to plug it in and show me it worked, and when they did, it didnt work. They then said they were going to throw it out, i said I would take it off there hands anyways. I got it home and noticed it was on 220 volts and I then switched on to 110 volts and all works as it should....like I said, dumb luck!

Welcome, and good for you for having the self control and patience to buy cheap.

Today's purchase: Needs some help though. Need antennas, volume knob and tuning knob. What do people use to clean the white speakers? They are very dirty and the right one is a bit stained. I cleaned the outside up and it came out great but the speakers look awful.

How do you generally prep the speakers? Small vacuum for the dust/dirt I am assuming, but what about the stains? Paint over them?

Wow. $32 dollars for all that? What great finds. My wife would be tickled pink if that's all I spend on mine.
Say. Your screen name on here. Does that mean you own an SRT4 or one of the SRT8's? I'm a car guy too so just wondering.

SRT8. Have a 2010 Challenger SRT Hurst Series 1
Cool deal man. Nice ride
