Road tripping in a classic car with no audio

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I don't know how I'm going to cope... The sound of the exhaust note from a twin-cam is music to my ears, but after 7 days and 4000+ kms, it might wear a bit thin...

 

I've just bought this classic 1975 Celica GT2000 from Japan and am planning a road trip from Sydney, down through the 'Snowy Mountains' through Melbourne, and then along the 'Great Ocean Road' to Adelaide and return. It's 4000+kms over 7 days, and my car only has a mono AM/FM radio which doesn't pick up any stations in Australia.

 

 

 

My new girlfriend is joining me on this trip, and I fear our relationship might suffer if we actually have to talk to each other for the entire trip (jks :P) so I need to setup some form of audio so we can at least listen to some tunes and podcasts etc on the way.

 

How would you guys go about rigging something up? I have a laptop (w/ car charger) as well as various other portable source components and IEM's etc. So I'm thinking of just running a my laptop into my RSA Intruder headphone amp, and then a headphone splitter into our IEM's so we can both listen to the same source, although IEM's will make conversation a bit difficult.

I had an 83' Mercedes with an am/fm/cassette. To play CDs I bought a small box that transmitted an fm signal to the radio. The antenna wire went into the box and another antenna wire went from the box to the radio. I tapped into the radio 12v power to power the "transmitter" box. You could then plug a compact disk player into the box, which sent the fm signal to radio and wala! you were playing cds. I suspect this would also work with a PDP, like an iPod.
