Homemade Samsonite Car Stereo

I stopped at a yard sale today and the homeowner owns a couple of restored Volkswagens. Since he didn't want to cut up his VW up to install a stereo system, he built his own stereo disguised as a couple of old Samsonite suitcases. Neat idea, isn't it? (see next photo)

    Brian Aslak No, he made it for his vintage VW. He shows it at car shows and doesn't want a modern stereo system to ruin the vintage goodness. He did consider making them and selling them to other vintage car collectors.

    Roadsidepictures Very impressive, though not something for my 2008 car. Though it would look nice in the living room.

    I have these exact suitcases. I'm thinking of taking mine apart and making a little shelf out of them.
