Man those were the days.

Never had the dough for an equalizer. Im sure the 2 6x9s in the rear deck would have sounded much better. What did they do anyhow? Just looked cool under the dash.

They didn't do too much unless you had like 8 speakers but they had like 20 sliders on them & they looked cool. lol!

You know just yesterday a guy came in with a '77 Buick century.  It looked decent under all the salt and snow, I'm sure it wasn't originally from Ohio, since most cars like that were pretty much junk by the '90's.

I know my '78 Pontiac had the same problem.  One fell off on me, then its replacement fell off on the guy I sold it to.

I was with a friend of mine in his 80 cutlass doing around 80 -90 mph on the parkway the we hit a bump and the damn bumper went shooting off into the woods. We kept going too, its probably still there and that was 20 years ago at least. Didnt help it was held on with a chain already.

Ha...I remember stuff like that, too. It was so ingrained in me from seeing rusted out bumpers on virtually every "A" body back in the day that the first thing I did when I purchased the Monte (original MN car) was instinctively pull the rear bumper to inspect the backside; despite every indication that it was a rust-free car. Fortunately, it was clean.

Found an old friend this past weekend.  Remember my posting this piece of work about three yrs ago (as spotted at local Walmart)?



Now, PULVERIZED with a hard hit to the front corner...and reduced to organ donor at the junk yard.  Wonder if one of those propellor wheels took flight? Jacking

Funny thing is a guy I used to work with had those same ugly A$$ wheels, except he had them on a '06 Monte Carlo.  It made that car look like crap also.

Google them. I guess they sold a few sets. On cars I would never be caught dead driving.
