8 track tapes

Hey guys,
I'm looking for vintage 8 track tapes.
Perferably rock and roll, though there are exceptions.
I curently have
CCR
AC/DC though I want more..
Jimi Hendrix
Best of Cream
The Best of Guess Who
Scorpions.

I'm looking for lots of different stuff.. shoot me what you got or can find and I'll make it worth your while..
I've seen E-bay and I know about the 8 track shack,
But thought it would be funner to look for them else where..

Nathan

I see some every once and awhile sold as a lot on craigslist. Also on eBay and sometimes the shipping's not bad if you get 10 or so at a time. Still not a big collectible yet so the prices aren't bad. How much are you wanting to pay per tape? I think they quite making them around 1985 maybe??

I can watch for them at garage sales over here for you.

8 track tapes

One of my hobbies is the repair/selling of 8 track tapes. I currently have over 300 that I am going through before I sell them on Ebay. If you want to come by and have a look you are welcome to. I have everything from country to orchestra.
I also have a NOS 8 track with the FM tuner insert and cassette insert that I will be willing to let go at a reasonable price.

vintracer,
I'd love to come by but I live on the other side of the state.. Could I send you, my pink flyod tape to be fixed?? the sensor foil failed.

Kenny,
what I'm willing to pay for tapes depends on who they are and if they are in good condition.. I've paid as little as $.50 and as much as $13
$13 gets me a restored tape that is guarnteed.
on and average I pay $5 including shipping from ebay
and take a risk on if they work.. see pink flyod above.
So, if you find anything cool kenny that isn't outragious feel free to pick it up and bring it with you to salem.. I'll pay you back and give you something for your time.. Maybe a working 8 track player for your falcon??

Nathan

8 track tape

I will be more than happy to fix the tape for you, but it depends how the case is assembled. Some of the manufacturers did not want them taken apart for repair. Send a picture of the front and back to me at robertr@vrmotors.com and I will let you know.
