Secretaudio | Secret Audio Hidden Car Stereo for Classic Cars

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: radio

A mp3 player or a car stereo?

In the glove compartment maybe?

Re: radio

The term mp3 player threw me off. MP3 players are usually about the size of a zippo lighter and plugs directly into a computer, receiver or headphones.

Re: radio

I think the secret audio is the way to go but I am considering the glovebox because of the cost differance
