Hell anything below 75 degrees is freezing to me lol.
We get our asses kicked every year with snow and ice. Winter is just one big frozen mother fookker. I've learned that I love tractor supply more than I thought I ever could lol.

With a couple more BB's you'd be able to replicate The Great Wall O China with those beasts!  Who had the biggest one there?

 

(Leave it chaps, don't even think about going there!  :-D )

The Berecha was easily the biggest box. Loudest box goes to the custom white pearl C100FF...that sucker was loud as hell!

Big thanks to Dr DER for hosting the meet. Not only did we have plenty of boxes but lots of food and drink as well. Carne asada ranchera, grilled chicken, grilled pork, chorizo, nacho cheese sauce, spanish rice, tortillas and lots of beer and tequilla!! Big thanks to Dave's wife for allowing us into her home and kitchen. It really was a fantastic day. The NorCal and SoCal crew are a very tight group. We literally communicate every day on group chat. We find boomboxes and parts for one another. My last 3 boombox finds, a C100F, C100FF, and J1 were all found and picked up by members of our group. Without them these 3 gems would have never been in my collection. I am blessed to call each of these great men my friend.

Thanks Eric! Thats your work right there, the chrome strip under the tuner is actually one that you sent me for and M-90, and of course the tape deck decal that you made for me came out flawless!  :bow:

HOLY SMOKES,

I had NO idea this was such a BIG deal. I am from this late 70's, early 1980's Big hair, boom box era and had owned several models back in the day....not a big deal but great tunes then outside the parents home "Realistic" cheaper sound systems....

NICE collection guys!!! again WOW!!!! can I share this pic with old school friends???

 

My current owned older models are, Panasonic RX-DT690,,, CD player does not recognize disc, probably the belt -(rubber band) & Realistic compact {SCR41} has Dual tapes, wide expansion sound, great for the bathroom!!! and deck..

 

Are "Any" of these boxes in the driveway for sale????

Looking for a tall, silver one, (no detachable speakers, Hitachi, G.E. or JVC or? in that 1970's era.

I use to own the monster 27 lb. 32" wide, JVC Quintett a detactable component,, carry or shelf system which boasted 60w per chl. no more it's VERY rare...

Thats what we love, sharing the culture! Of course you can share the vids and pics.

I can only speak for myself, but none of my boomboxes are for sale at the moment, sorry man. But check out the for sale or trade section here, theres always boxes ready for new homes. And Welcome to Boomboxery
