Subject: Re: minivan/microbus

My college roommate in the early sixties had a VW mumble bus. (This

discussion has caused me to forget whether we called it a minibus or microbus

back then.)

I do remember he had an option that you won't find today on any car, a

spring-balanced 45 RPM record player that fit into the glovebox, or somewhere

up there on the dash. CD player skips are nothing compared to what this baby

could do to a record.

It didn't have an automatic record dropper, so the copilot's job was to put on

a new Chuck Berry record (they were new back then) every two minutes.
