I wonder how many sets were wrecked in the 70's when they got "antiqued". My dad used to do it to desks and stuff, no radios or anything really valuable. He liked it but I always thought it looked pretty stupid.

I always hated that too. I thought it looked awful on any furniture!

I don’t mean to be presumptuous but I wonder if they are planning on giving it Last Rites before they bury it in the garden.

Yes they are....and they will have the record player spinning a 45 of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky" as it's being lowered into the ground.

Ahhh the 70's, I can only imagine it was the after effects of all the drugs used in the 60's that made people think stuff like that looked good.

Now RT, Don't get your grille cloth in a bunch. The guy that desecrated that poor console probably had a matching lime green leisure suit. Who said his taste was all in his mouth? :mrgreen:
