Thanks Trax for that amazingly interesting photo! Do you perhaps know what make that is or maybe what year that was manufactured in? I'd really like to know.
That gives me another idea! Maybe I could also create and display a timeline showing the evolution of the car stereo.
Yes, I think I will! Woo-hoo! And that oldschool "Pimp My Automobile" pic is definately going to be in there.
Exciting stuff!

Motorola made the first car radio.  http://www.motorola.com/automotive/why_motorola.html

Blaupunkt made the first FM car radio.  http://www.gspr.com/blau/_bl_history_fr.html

Here's a pic of the first Atwater Kent (in Philadelphia) aftermarket AM car radio.  (I saved the pic but can't find the source.)  Mounted under the dash with built-in speaker on bottom.

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

Thanks Stevdart for a great contribution. I appreciate it. Both Motorola and Blaupunkt have very interesting histories.
