    Dunno, what sort of "Old Fart " music was it? Speaking as an Old Fart

    3 discs are late 60's and 70's and the other 3 are 50's and 60's. what i grew up with that mum used to play at home. she had hundreds of single records and several albums. we lived in an old stone farmhouse with thick walls and the collection was on the living room window ledge/seat. the top one of each stack was all warped from the sun, lol. memories.............

    i just bought 2 pairs of pcd adapters so i can use the borbet 17" wheels i took of of my last mercedes and haven't sold yet. the adapters were listed as ex display so were about half the normal price, bonus.
