    I guess thatís the point. It was an idea done a long time ago and died there. It should have stayed dead.

    It was likely a fun project for bored engineers.

    I still have my Mister Disc (also called a Sound Burger). It operates on batteries and can use headphones. I would take it along when visiting used record stores. I never tried to play it in my car.

    Does one listen to the LPs while parked or can they be enjoyed even while damaging rims and tires crashing into NE winter induced potholes?

    This proves that even with all that fancy marketing, a Lexus is still just an overweight Toyota.

    I donít know why but when I saw this post I thought about this old skit from SNL. Definitely safer to play a record than do this in a car:

    Ha, that's great. From back in the days when humor was still a thing... I can only imagine the many different ways this can be construed as offensive today...
