Soundwagon portable record player

soundwagon-record-player.jpg

Even though cassette tapes are a better reflection of my childhood than vinyl records, I did have a Cyndi Lauper 45 of "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough" that I played whenever I could gain control of the record player. I remember the single because 1) it was my first and only record and 2) my 7-year-old mind wasn't too keen on the scary screaming skull on the cover.

Since my dad probably still has the record somewhere at his house (he's a bit of a hoarder), I think I may have to pick up this Soundwagon Portable Record Player from Turntable Lab. Even though the battery-powered motor tucked inside officially licensed Volkswagen bus is only able to keep the small stylus beneath the van moving at 33 RPM, the built-in speaker leaves much to be desired in terms of sound quality, and the setup isn't recommended for use on invaluable vinyls, I'd at least get to find out if the skeleton still freaks me out. Putting childhood fears to rest (or confirming that some things never change) is certainly worth $89.
