Price increases are insane
Bought a new V6 Mercury Capri in late 1972 for $3040. by 1978, a new VW Rabbit (4 cyl) had a sticker price of over $8000. The 70s were rough.

How to tell if your AC wiring needs an upgrade
A few years ago, I got a good deal on "as new" Klipsch La Scalla II speakers. I was so excited, I purchased a demo Primaluna prologue premium integrated amp. Couldn't wait to hear them! Wouldn't you know, there was a buzz I could hear 12 feet away...
