Maybe. But some people and collectors have weird tastes. I've seen a CD deck in an AMC Pacer.
And I have a friend with a CD changer and satellite radio in their '74 VW Bug. Maybe Crutchfield is still around, making aftermarket kits for antique cars?

You haven't lived until you've seen an iPod hooked up to the handlebars of an old 1980s moped.

Don't ask. People in my town can be odd.

I thought I saw him today when I was watching it. When Enterprise jumps out of warp and you see the scene of the Enterprise rotating you can see R2 in the debris field. It's the wide shot where they're above Vulcan.

Mystery solved...

Ladies and Germans, someone was actually nerdy enough to find R2-D2 in the STXI.

And yet, people will bitch about this... OMG! They mixed Star Trek with Star Wars! They violated the unwritten rules of nerddom!

Is it just me or does that look like it could be anything? ...guess we'll have to wait for the Blu-Ray screencaps.

That's what you get for not showing up to meetings.

Maybe Gaila escaped in an R2-D2 suit.

Collecting an AMX or a Rebel I understand but, a Pacer? WTF?

Yep. A Pacer.

A local car collector who has wide-ranging tastes in what he restores and drives. And he put a deck in his old Pacer after refurbishing it.

I have a wide-ranging taste in classic cars too but, a Pacer? The car nicknamed the 'Pregnant Rollerskate'? That's just sad...
