LOL, I think you have to remove that stuff for Meatloaf...I heard a meatloaf tape can add 100 lbs to the weight of your car.
If your taking weight out, you can also remove the seats, floor and trunk pans as well as inner fenders, headliner and steering wheel
How about the precursor to 8 tracks, .... the 4 track cartridge? Contained twice as much tape, with the same amount of music. Still have a suit case full of them, ...doubt that they're still playable. I still might have somewhere, the 4/8 track player, that I "hacked" the dash, in my 56', .... to mount in the radio location. That puppy was heavy, even without an Iron Butterfly or Canned Heat tape.Hell yeah, are they called tapes or reels? And how is it that 8 track jokes never seem to lose their funniness?
