We call them Homer cars now because of one episode of The Simpsons, in which Homer designs a car... and hilarity ensues.

This joker drove over 1000 miles mass-buying supplies to re-sell on the 'Bay and AMZN, only to have his listings removed for price gouging.  Poor fella.

The coolest part of this video besides the beautiful powder and mountain back drop is how this guy managed to hide the selfie stick in the video.

Half an hour of a painfully polite British bloke discussing a late 70s open reel deck.  Cool Story Bro: I have an unrestored Otari MX-5050 that's been in my attic for nearly 20 years.  I was all set to sell it then we got hit with this global pandemic/zombie apocalypse thing.  The nerve!

Properly restored, these things command well over a grand.  Having moved it a few times, I can say price-per-pound, they're a bargain.

Hey Knucks, I've worked on a few 5050's and they usually don't take very much work to get running pretty well.

You might want to check out some of the threads on the Tape Project forum (particularly the Guides above the General Forum) although a lot of the links are broken these days.

https://forum.tapeproject.com/

Feel free to PM me with any questions.

I actually lugged the 5050 downstairs yesterday.  It's no longer in its rack enclosure.  Also, rack rails are sharp AF.  Ow.  Unsure what I'm going to do with it.  Right now it's on the floor, in easy toe bash reach.  I am once again astounded what an absolute unite this thing is.  Also, TI(re)L: the 5050 only speaks XLR.  No namby pamby RCA here.  Since I'm stuck inside for the foreseeable future, I'm gonna dig up some XLR cables, see if I have a reel of tape (I swear there's some Ampex upstairs somewhere) and see if I can make it go.
