    Icon32 New Stereo In Old Car

    I have a 1962 Pontiac and I want a radio that will fit into the dash with the two knob holes and have the radio to work with a single cd player(just a cd player) head unit connected to it. Do You know of any ideas. If I did that would one with a aux connection on the back of it work with the cd player head unit. But I don't know where to find radios like that to fit my car that have aux connections.
    Any suggestions

    Dunno what the dash is like in the Poncho, but in my Olds there's a plastic woodgrain panel (see my avitar) that covers the factory radio. I bit the bullet and hacked it with a Dremmel tool to fit a new style radio. Took me a day 'cuz I was scared shitless of messing it up. Came out nice, and worth the hassle.

    Of course if you're into showing the car or keeping it original, a CD player hidden in the glove box works too. Not real convenient though.
