WARNING; the felt piece that the 8 track tape slides on while being played, turns to a gooey sticky mess when it ages and will gum up your player. Always check that pad before playing a tape. JB

good to know. Not even sure if it works. I haven't seen an 8 track in years. Every time I turn on the radio I get faint spanish music. Just wanted something from the era hanging out of the radio

I have a "Wall" 8-track in a box somewhere at my mom's place. Not what you said you are looking for, but I'll search for it if you want.

Much appreciated, but really looking for the early stuff.

WOW I like them old ET's them are timeless I had 325/50 on an 8" wheel but looked retarded and dropped to a 275/60 fit wheel much better


I was really hoping the ET's were 10" when I pulled them out. I had a lead nearby on a set of 15 x 10 ansens for $50 last year. Shoulda grabbed them. I want to get a wider tire under it and stay with a nostalgic rim

Got to love people that want to sell things on Cl, but can't take the time to clean and take quality pics. Although $100 for polishing all four is a hell of a deal. I guarantee he gets one half polished and quits. Still a good find. No size listed?

With the recent addition to our family, I rarely have time for Ethel. Although on a recent trip to My brothers house, where I keep her, I threw My Dads 17" torq thrusts on just for the hell of it. Bad cell phone pic. I thought they looked pretty good on there. When the weather gets better I'll get her outside and take another

A warning about 8 tracks, there is a plastic foam that sits under the tape where the player head contacts the tape. This foam, used by most recording studios at the time, turns to a gooey sticky mess just like G3 steering wheels do. I always cut a small portion of ordinary bubble wrap and slip it under the tape at that point. It works like a champ! Have you tried Youtube? You can make MP3s from Youtube if you have Real Player (I think it has to be Real Player Plus, but not sure). JB

I'm keeping the 8-track in my 75 as well. It's not working right now, but it may just be disconnected. I haven't dug under the dash yet to trace wires and see what's going on. I do want to get some tapes for it once I do. I remember them very well. I had Kiss: Alive II years ago. I remember you almost always had to shove a matchbook next to the tape so it wouldn't drag...laughs...I'd love the Van Halen and AC/DC one's if you still have them.
