Gary Tayman's 1964 Thunderbird

Collector Car Audio


Auto Radio, Auto Audio, for antique and vintage vehicles!

Don't finish off a top-notch restoration with an inferior stereo!

We offer high-quality solutions, stereos that look and sound great in your classic without ruining that classic appearance!.

What's the point of restoring a classic car with classic styling, only to butcher the dash for a stereo that ruins the appearance?  Or something shoved into the glove compartment where you can't reach it?  We can get you set up with modern electronics INSIDE your ORIGINAL RADIO, or a new stereo that looks great in the dash without cutting!

If AM/FM Stereo is your goal, that's great, but we don't stop there.  With options you can play MP3 music from your flash drive, or connect to your cell phone using Bluetooth!  Play music, make hands-free calls, or even get navigation without touching your phone -- all using your car's original AM radio!

Interested in upgrading an older conversion?  Or do you have an Aurora conversion but would like to add Bluetooth or USB?  Give us a call; we have special pricing for upgrades, and we support ALL the Aurora products built since day one.


A HUGE portion of our business comes from referrals -- thank you for your trust.  Several of you have asked for  literature for your friends -- we've posted a flyer you can print and distribute.  Click here.  Thanks again!


NEWS -- February 8, 2016:

We will be CLOSED Thursday and Friday, as we will be in Mt. Dora for the Central Florida Radio Exchange.

ONLINE SHOPPING -- Yes, we still offer the products on these pages, but you will need to contact us to place the order.  We'll be happy to take care of you.  You can call 941-371-8924 during business hours or e-mail anytime.

Turnaround:  Expect two weeks, give or take.  Those who are good at following instructions on the Shipping Page will have them done faster.  Proper packing eliminates damage.  A complete note, or filled-out form, tells us exactly what we need to do.  A "Please call" message may cause a significant delay when we're really busy.  If we spent the time to track down 10% of our customers, turnaround time for everyone would increase significantly.

We're STILL getting a steady flow of "other" conversions, asking for upgrade to Aurora.  Three so far this month, with more on the way.  We also get calls asking us to service other conversions.  Since we no longer offer that product, our only option is to upgrade to Aurora.  Those who have opted for this are VERY happy!

If you have any doubt as to how our conversions perform, take a look at our video. Wonderbar/Town & Country sets also work as original, and sensitivity selection also works, unlike any other repro or conversion product out there.

Atwater Kent Radio  Personal Antique Radio Collection  Gary Tayman has collected many vintage home radios over the years.  While some are still future projects, many are totally rebuilt and are used daily!  One cannot deny that the carved-wood art-deco styling, coupled with the warm glow of the tubes, provides a certain charm that simply cannot be duplicated by any of their modern counterparts.
