    What 80's domestics are actually collectible?

    Off the top of my head,

    I have a love/hate relationship with the remote roll down on my Accord. I have come out of restaurants before and found all my windows down and sunroof open because the button was hit just right. 
    It happened to my 2011 BMW 328xi the night of a snowstorm.  I was NOT happy when I came out to the car at 6AM.
    Did I tell my horror story at Christmas time with the Enclave?  I don't think so....

    Long story short I was running around on the 23rd doing food shopping and other stuff for our Xmas eve dinner, picking up the wife's bday cake etc.   It was a beautiful warm day and since my mom had the kids I opened the sunroof. Well with all chaos unloading the car I completely forgot it was open.  

    Next morning it rained and I opened the blinds in the dining room and could see the roof open.  OMG.  It was bad....  I freaked out (in the middle of cooking for 30 people) and ran outside with towels.   Soaked up as much as I could and ran the heat on full blast for a few hours idling in the driveway.  Luckily everything survived and no water stains or anything.   The heavy mats absorbed most of it and the seats.  

    Yes I may have to bring it in. I do have a feeling the AC is low on freon.  Kind of upsetting with only 25k miles.  We may have an 80 degree day this week so I'll get a chance to test it out.

    Vinyl, if you have an analog receiver/amplifier, can have a bit of a warm resonance to it which would probably fit a lot of jazz. But most receivers that are hooked to a turntable these days are digital meaning you probably won't really get the full effect. But then I remember back in the early 70's when speakers were advertising all their specs. A fellow lieutenant had a degree in something like acoustical engineering and said most human ears wouldn't notice the difference on the high end speaker specs. He saved me some money on my equipment. Nice thing though was the stuff I bought was Japanese, not Chinese, so it still works well today!
    Most new equipment doesn't even have a proper turntable input.  You would need an outboard pre-amp to use one
