You seem to have an 80s portable design fetish today. That grid like tuning scale design, common on 80s radios, reminds me of the speedo/gauges panel of my 87 Corolla.

I presume your 87 Corrolla is still running strong. They don't make Toyotas the way they used to.

Just goes and goes. I've had it four years now. I deliberately paid a bit extra for a low KM, great condition, little old lady example. Even now it has done only 78000kms (not quite 50000 miles). Insurance is cheap, Service is cheap due to lack of EFI and other electronics. Replaced a couple of tyres. Otherwise, no unforeseen breakdowns or costs whatsoever. By the way here's a typical grid scale design am/fm radio from an 87 Corolla. These were made locally (Australia) by AWA/Clarion (note AWA logo below right knob) Mine looks similar but has Cassette player as well.

Man, I guess I'm stuck in the 80s but truth be told, grid notwithstanding, I like radios from the 70s best.
