My summer car is a 1978 Thunderbird Diamond Jubilee. The car has a Quadrophonic 8 stereo in it, but it will play normal 8-tracks just fine as well. The speakers sound like a Zellers intercom system though. In an effort to drive the car more so that the seals don't dry out and leak on my driveway, I started recording the Bombcast to blank 8-track tapes.
For recording the Bombcast to tape, I hook an 1/8″ jack to RCA cable to the back of my line-out port on my PC, and connect it to line-in on my Sears 8-track player, it’s nothing special but it works well enough. I play the Bombcast out in Winamp using the Enhancer 0.17 dsp for volume leveling. The majority of the Bombcast fits on two 60 or 64 minute 300′ tapes.
Here’s the video:
The thing plugged into the cigarette lighter is a Zune branded USB adapter which I use to power my GPS speedometer because the original one thinks we’re always going somewhere between 20 and 40 km/h.
Anyway, I do this pretty much every week, but this was the only week I took video of it working. Maybe it's neat or at least quirky to you!
