(not to compete with our esteemed moderator): My parents bought a new car 
in 1982 with no factory radio.  I somehow (at the narrowminded age of 
seven) managed to persuade them to purchase an AM/FM/Audio Cassette car 

I'm sure that persuasion came back to haunt me later, as I did buy my 
parents last car from them, and did notice (factory model car radio) that 
two of the preset buttons were missing. <g>
