I bought myself a Crosley Songbird (Crosley Radios) radio in turquoise. It was about $50 which may sound like a good chunk of change, but this thing is awesome. I can hook up headphones and my ipod. I can set it to automatic - use it as an alarm. The sound quality is great. I love the turquoise color, but if you want something else it also comes in: black, red, blue, pink, and green. I love the retro look of all the Crosley items.
I actually bought this because I asked my uncles if we could finish restorations on the 1956 Nash Metropolitan so I could put it in a car show or two. The Metro is a two-tone turquoise and white car. I wanted this so I could play my ipod while in the car or at the car show.
