Ever hear those stories on the radio that really make you scratch your head and go ‘huh?’ Well, I had one of those this morning on my way to work. The question was, what year did the cassette player become obsolete in cars?
You’ll never believe the answer.
I didn’t at first, but I thought it happened quite a while ago. Like a decade ago LOL I remember my dad’s new Taurus was a 1999, and it was 2000 when the CD player became standard.
And apparently Lexus will still offer the cassette player as an option until the stock runs out.
Now back to the year. Have you taken a guess yet?
Yup, this year. Isn’t that crazy? I can’t even remember the last time I chose to listen to a tape. The tape decks in all my CD players are dusty from years of neglect. And yet some people still want them in their cars.
Made me scratch my head and go ‘huh?’
