I got this 1992 golf for free. Rescued from the junkyard because it couldn’t pass safety inspection. It had a nice aftermarket stereo installed and it has bluetooth ability.
The golf only had 2, 4” speakers in the front. I put some junkyard speakers in the rear deck of the hatchback and they never worked. Figured the stereo had bad amps or something.
Well, while I was in Africa, I had the battery out and on a maintainer. Put it back and never tried to listen to anything until today. My life has been majorly meh since returning. Today I wanted to listen to something on the drive home from work. BT wouldn’t connect. Kept saying the device was full or some BS like that.
I was about to give up. Switched it to digital audio and went to the best station I have found here in Germany BOB1 on the digital tuner. This song came on, Doctor Doctor, by UFO. A song which my ears were virgin to.
As I instinctively turned up a kick-ass tune on the radio, expecting to overdrive my 4” speakers, I noticed a full sound coming from the rear of the car. Sure nuff, those trash 6” Audi junk yard gems were growling This UFO ecstasy with all their heart.
I cranked it. It hurt my ears, but soothed my soul. Not wanting to miss out on possibly only time the speakers ever work again.
Here it is for those of you that also need something awesome today:
