I was thinking about getting a filler plate or some gauges in place of the radio and taking out the speakers cause they suck anyway. Has anybody else done this, and do you manage all right?

Re: How many of you have NO radio? (estus)

When my radio was stolen in the other car I missed it terribly, but the silence kinda grew on me. If I didn't like music so much, I would definately go without. You think more when there's no music and I felt like I actually had done something after driving without a radio. I say go for it!

Re: How many of you have NO radio? (estus)

If my car came with a broken old radio, i would just tear it out rather than install anything new. But, my car came with a cd player and a sub, so I guess I'll just keep it...
until it gets stolen

Re: How many of you have NO radio? (Tarmac)

when i bought my 91 it had a cd player and a sub already in it. first thing i did to the car was take it all out and give it away. second thing was pull out all the tint.
but.... figure it out for yourself if you need a radio in your own car.

My <cough> tapedeck is the old, old school version where the whole damn unit slides out... so I only have it inserted in the dash when I'm on a longer trip. Otherwise, it's a nice big hole !

My car stilll has the stereo that came with the car in 1988 (cassette) - needless to say - it sucks ! I never use it because the tape player sux too - won't read tapes anymore. Oh well, that was my excuse to pull out the rear shelves out of my car along with the rear belts to match the empty space where the rear seats used to be. Now I just listen to my loud-arse exhaust and suspension jolts echo around in the back

Re: How many of you have NO radio? (PimpStylin')

sometimes its ok to drive w/o the radio on but damn that would be kinda nerveracking on a longer drive IMO, but I do enjoy my bosal headers and leistriz sport sound exhaust rumbling through the gears
