Well, This is an interesting one. I spoke to my workshop landlord as he owns some garages behind the workshop and said i'd be looking to rent one in the near future to house the Capri.
Sure enough, one came up. So he rung and said he'd be down there this morning at 9:30 as he had some ashpalt being delivered to re-do the road. Anyhow, I arrived. And straight away the trailer of his old M reg rover was full to the brim of 80s tvs he had dragged out of this lockup - clearing it prior to me renting it! I stopped him there, and said i'd take the lot lol! 7 sets in total. There was also 100m of coax on a roll new, some old snooker balls and an old petrol can. Plusa 1980s microwave, and a 90s microwave. Saved him a job anyway!
Now, on with the sets. Most with the exception of the grundig seem to be late 80s TVs and all high spec all singing models with teletext etc.
Firstly there's a very large Pioneer set, something i've never seen before sadly looks like the CRT hasn't faired well! Next to it is a set with seemingly no maker, but it boasts the fact it has an "Automatic Voltage Finder"!
Next up, The Grundig seems like a good condition set, and will scrub up well.
there's a Hitachi, sadly the back is smashed up and the model number has ran away. I initially thought the CRT was toast but on further inspection it seems the CRT is just very badly scratched. The CRT base PCB is also very smashed up. So it may be a write-off sadly...
The Panasonic's cabinet has collapsed ontop as it seems to have had something heavy on it. But the fablon type material isn't damaged so with some clever bracing it may survive yet.
The other two sets are good nick all round with a good clean up
So... Fun and games, Not many sets here Chris would like though i'm sure!
Now, what to do with them... I have no idea. Looks like my lockup will be full before i've even started!
