Eine kleine Driversmusik

Satellite radio? iPod in your dashboard? Bah. Come with me now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, to model year 1956, when Chrysler Corporation (via CBS Laboratories) came up with an in-dash record player.

"Highway Hi-Fi," indeed. Still, if it had caught on, would we ever had had 8-track (or even 4-track) tapes?

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go pop a CD-R into the dash.

(Via Jalopnik, which is sorta like what you'd get if Wonkette were obsessed with rear axle ratios instead of — um, never mind.)
