That is actually really funny because some kids don't even know what a cassette is.  They have also never heard of an 8-track either.  It's a sad sad world we live in. 

I was browsing around the other day and don't know how but I came across an actual ipod adapter for a cassette player in your car.  Yes it is 2011 and it is indeed rare to find a tape deck.  Vehicles now have cd players with built in ipod jacks which is nice, or people will install their own cd player.  I know you remember shopping around for a good cd player for your car. 

I got really sick of having a cassette get all tangled up and you have to take it out of the deck to fix it by winding it back up.  I then upgraded to a cd player which skipped every time you went over a bump.   Anyway the reason I am writing this is because I never even thought about having an ipod adapter for a tape deck.  I used to have a cd player adapter but never did I imagine one for an ipod. 

There's a way around everything I guess and that's definitely one of them.  So my question is, does anybody still have a pre 90's car that has a tape deck?  If you do did you upgrade and get the adapter for your ipod.  I bet they will make one for an ipad as well.  Why not.
