"Didn't think I'd ever see these again, but

thanks to the good dudes at Stokyo the Sound Wagon (aka Vinyl Killer)

is reborn!

You might have seen these back in the 70's (if you're old

enough) or most probably in the 90's on those old ISP videos, but

incase you are unfamiliar, this little van is actually the world's

smallest portable record player. No joke! The van (officially licensed

by Volkswagen btw) actually drives around your record and plays music

out of the self contained speaker. It uses a small stylus under the van

to track the record while the internal motor propels the van around the

record at a perfect 33 1/3 speed (sorry no 45 RPM mode). The sound

isn't the greatest (it's a toy speaker of course), but it's mad fun to

use and can act as an emergency record player at used shops and garage

sales if you forget to bring your portable. Runs off a 9V battery not

included."

NOTE: Not recommended for use on invaluable records.
