Do you still have the tapes or player. I did until about 3 years ago. You know, the stereo with the slide top console that housed an AM/FM radio, 8 Trak player and turn table. I should have left it in the garage. Set it out side the road for pick up with about 4-5 8 tracks. (can't recall who they were).

Yes, I remember 8 tracks! My husband had me buy him a replacement player on eBay recently. Do you remember the plunger style? Yes, I got him a bright yellow plunger style player and some 8 tracks! It really brings us back! I know we have the soundtracks to Grease and Happy Days! Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

I figured it would be someone who would love to be the new parent of an 8 track. LOL. I should have kept mine even if only for the turn table. Too late now. I still have all the albums though.

There's a player in the family room, and next to it are about 150 tapes! What did I think they were good for? I should probably put them in the trash, but they continue to fill their big shelf!

150 8 track tapes? I don't think I've seen that many in any consignment shop.EVER!(lol) And a player too. Who knows, Craigs list might have a ole school head who still wears the polyester bell-bottoms, popcorn shirt and 3 inch wedge shoes, who would be thrilled to get their hands on them. *I should have thought of that before I dumped mine* I'm awed. Thanks for your reply.

Hey cobrateacher! If you don't want the player anymore or the 8 tracks themselves please don't put them in the trash! My husband and I would love them! And we live near you. So, please if you're going to throw them we will gladly take them off your hands and play them! It's a good way to torture our kids too!

Thanks for the "best". Sometimes I wonder if the old things are too cool to give up, but then I look at how cluttered this house is becoming, and I do want them to go to someone who really wants them!

We are going to tell our age after a while. Those things were so cool back then. Or, should I say, way back then. Like you say Soyporteno, oh for the good ole days.

LOL...you telling me. When they first came out they were the equivalent to the modern CD. And they even had a rewind button to repeat your favorite song. *you have to be old school to understand*
