Free pick up

Well. I was recently blessed with a gift of a 1995 z71 4wd extended cab pickup. Father in law sold farm and moved to town, gave me the truck. Ain't God good?
After a week or so of scrubbing seats and carpets, and some frebreeze, wife says she'll ride in it now. A/C has coolant leak somewhere. Charged it with some UV dye. Can't find leak. Assume now its under dash.
Frustrating part is, it has a cassette player. Where do you get cassettes nowadays? Lol. Anyway, its gonna be a great hunting truck. Save wear and tear on my TV. Just wanted to share.

Got vinyl as well.

Had to put the tapes away when I got the 250 as it came with a CD player...

Yeah, I had tons of them too at one time. Held on for years but finally donated to goodwill. Hey. Maybe that's a place to look too.

How about replace radio. New ones are not real expensive.

Goodwill will not take them or VCR players or tapes, too old tech I guess.

I got one of those cassette tape player converter deals that allows you to hook up anything else with a headset jack. I'll send it for free. I no longer need it.

buy one of those cassette converters and connect it to your music player - I did it in my older car until I had a connector put in for my ipod.
