Heh you know it.
Does an old General Electric Wildcat count as nostalgic hardware?
Where did you get that big yellow CD
An omelet gone horribly wrong. If anyone's wondering it's Steve Martin's The Crow.
Oh hell yea!!!!!! Awesome old vinyl player Maban!!!!!!
I've got a big phonograph/8-track/radio cabinet in the garage that needs fixing up. I can't find anything on it that says what company or model or anything. Perhaps I could get some TPU help on identifying it? I figure it's from the 70's judging from the fabric pattern.
Some awesome nostalgic hardware here I'm loving it
Yep I am sure it is from the 70's. If there is no tag on the back board behind the unit, you can probably pull that back board and there should be one on the inside of it or possibly on one of the sides of the main cabinet. If I had to guess, due to no name on the tuner itself, I would guess it to be a Coranado brand. They were sold a lot during the early 70's. A lot of little stores carried them. One of the main distributors for Coranado was a store chain called Gambles. Gambles and another chain called Coast to Coast was a couple of the larger distributors for the Coranado brand name.
Thanks. I'll see if I can get the back panel off in the spring. It's currently buried under various things that have no business being in a garage.
Wow, I remember when my parents first bought our first computer (I'm a Senior in High School), we sort of got ripped off from an old Store in here, Fresno, CA. It was called A+ Computers.

I had to do a little digging to find this fella. Figured using a Quarter would give a good idea of scale.
Cool, a Pentium 166 with MMX
Added you to the original post.
You are certainly welcome and have fun with that low mileage bad boy. I also may have a few other hidden away gems you maybe interested in. 1 has a A in it and another is just the baddest of it series. And there's more. I will gets some pics soon as 1 is still in use and works very well.
Damn that board has only run a couple hours in it whole life. It's still a baby.
And here's it older sibling in action. Now for sale. In my fs thread.
Oh hey! I also have one just like that!
Spoiler: Crummy setup, I know...
