8-Track Museum

So some guy is starting an 8-track museum. Seems inevitable for the worst listening technology ever invented, even if it was pioneering in allowing you to listen to albums in your car.

This reminds me of one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. It's around 1990. I'd be around 16 then. I'm at my grandparents house. My uncle is there too. He's a bit of a weird dude. Man still has an 8-track player in his truck. Moreover, he's taking my grandfather''s vinyl albums and recording them on to blank 8-tracks through some sort of 8-track playing machine he still had. Where in the hell he found blank 8-tracks in 1990, I have no idea.
