Rick, don't you mean "Victrola"?
Just joshing. My Mom still has (and loves) a Sylvania console stereo made of real wood. You open the top and there is a record player and a tuner with a bunch of scratchy analog knobs. I've often toyed with the idea of rebuilding it from the inside out. She seems to like the form factor (God knows why), so I could drop a little receiver and a new turntable in there and rebuild the speakers. It could be kind of cool.
But I'm lazy, so I bought her a Sony boombox and am converting all her Polka LP's to CD.
The first option probably would have been more enjoyable, in retrospect.
