    Hi everyone I need a vintage 1980's Ghettoblaster that is at least 10 inches in height and length and at least 5 inches in depth. These specifications are very important. It doesn't matter if it's broken but I would prefer it if the outside of the boombox was not cracked/damaged. If you don't know what Ghettoblaster's are Google it, you're probably not old enough to have one anyway. :laugh:
    I will be looking elsewhere for a boombox but I would like to get one from here from people with good Heatware, rep, etc. If one of you has one laying around that you want to get rid of, post pics here before pm'ing me, it makes comparing offers easier. I am willing to pay much more than these are worth, I can't give an exact price until I see the unit, but expect anywhere from 30-50$. (I'll pay shipping)
    Hope to hear from you 80's children soon!

    Thanks, these are really hard to find because everyone that I know sold theirs years ago and the people that bought them probably have them collecting dust in their basement.

    I have this if you're interested:

    [​IMG]

    It's a Sony Model CFS-1010. It runs off 6 "D" batteries and has a wall cord. The speakers are detachable. Best of all, it works. It measures 19 3/4" L x 5 3/4" W x 7" H.

    pretty strict restrictions on the size... you a collector or just want one? you need to copy the link and paste it in your webpage, i didnt mean to make it a "direct link", i meant for you to copy/paste it.
