    I still have one-it came with a ‘78 Coupe deVille I had, and I think I did what you did-plugged the fake casette into a portable disc player, then put the fake cassette into the 8 track adapter, and plugged that into the Caddy’s stereo?

    My Dad had a 70 Mark III back in 1976 that came with an AM / 8 track player. We, my brother, his buddy, my sister, and I were all going to Baltimore to visit relatives. We brought Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon hoping he'd run out of radio stations in the middle of the night. Sure enough, somewhere in the middle of South Carolina we heard him grumbling about no radio stations. We whipped out our 8 track and he loved it!!! His favorite song was Money. Dad would tell us, "Put that money song on again." I think we wore that tape out on that trip! Miss you Dad!!!!!

    Bought a "YORX" combination AM/FM/cassette/8 track boom box in 1980. A whopping 150 bucks back then. Ames Department Store. A lot of money for a dorky kid.

    I think I have an eight-track deck / converter in the attic...
