I wouldn't have trusted any of my 45's to a needle in a moving car.

Not to mention the distraction of changing records every two and a half minutes while driving.

An uncle had one. I was about 9 or 10 and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Seen them but never had one in any of mine. Had 8 tracks though.

A friend still has a working 8 track, not in his car but the home stereo version. He's an electronics guy and likes to fix stuff.

wow I'm surprised any of the 8 tracks still play. You'd think after 5 decades of summer heat the tape itself would stop working. I actually just threw out all my 8 tracks a few months ago when I redid the storage area upstairs into the theater room. Came across about 50 of my old 8 tracks.

I had 8 tracks, but never knew these things existed.  That's some old school cool.

They existed about the same time frame these here existed :)

LOL, no I don't believe I've even seen one of those either.  We were pretty poor going up, but my Dad was a devoted do-it-yourselfer, so our car A/C  looked more like this:

THAT ... is a the earliest version of A/C.  Fill it with ice before heading out, and the air is directed in on the passenger.  My Dad had one, but just as a curio sitting on a shelf.

Wait, what is that thing?

That's one of the old style air conditioning units cars back in the 50's had. A lot of them were a fan and I think if I remember correct some you could fill with ice, needless to say they basically just blew warm air lol
