But wait there's more!
This high quality unit is made at the famous ChinkyDinkyWinkee
factory in China and uses only the highest grade plastic, genuine copper
plated components were absolutely necessary and it has a switch allowing
you to tune to 103.1 If you have a station at that frequency you might
also consider the ChinkyDinkyWinkee move to Montana model, it comes with
a cowboy hat and a coupon for 2.00 off on a carton of Marlboro's.

I was thinking about doing something with the radio, but you have to
remember my stable of autos! ;) Needs to be somewhat portable.
I did a fair amount of research and found the Motorolas get the highest
ratings for ease of use and sound quality. I went into Best Buy but they
had nothing in stock (was looking for a T215 or T 325) So I bought one on
eBay (A T305) for $15
Of course, the next day I walk into Best Buy and they have a T325 sitting
on the rack...
Just waiting for it to get here...
Thanks for the input. This would be the best solution, and one I may use
for the Scion, since I want to keep it neat looking.

That's the best solution I've heard yet! ;)
Unfortunately, I'm a Factory Service rep for Dell, and need to have a cell.
