    I got a couple for sale... lot less than $899.99 (Geez why can't I take a pic with anything other than a Brownie?)

    Got a couple of 8 track players, cassetes and event one for the car. My wife said it is time for me to clean out my $hit box.

    They were definitely of that design. It seemed pretty "space age" to me back then. Were there models with more stations?

    The ones I remember seemed larger, but I was pretty small at the time. There were several of them in various locations around the school. Any time I walked past one and the door was open I would stop and stare at it. ;)

    I must have been an odd little kid.

    I used to have tons of old controllers that I would pull off the wall. There's a thread or two from the last few years a with a photo. Now sure why I kept them for so long. Gotta simplify life and get rid of the junk and distractions. My two favorites were the Johns Manville and the Febco controllers.

    I keep 1 of each of the older controllers that I remove and have them mounted on a piece of plywood. I plan to start an irrigation museum next year.

    Seriously though, I keep it as a training tool for new guys. I don't want them walking into a customer's garage and getting the deer-in-headlights look because they're staring at something they've never seen before. Broken old controllers are good training tools.

  7. My droidx tries to correct my spelling. Changes RC to RD I guess thinking I'm going for the abbreviation of road.

    Are you still happy with the X? I've heard the droid2 is junk.
