This thread got me thinking about all of my past rigs, also it got me searching on t'interweb for pictures an specs of them all, the one that I couldn't think of was a President AM 40 rig, I searched and searched and not knowing it's name I found it quite difficult to pin down, in the end the detective work paid off..... It was an AR7, I loved that little rig until it got stolen from my car within minutes of walking in the house! I then had a Midland 3001 straight 40 AM, I pop riveted the upper case to the underside of my Beetle dashboard and had a DV based Firestick on the boot (Trunk) just above the number plate light..

Might get an AR7 just for the memories...

I'm getting the bug too guys!!!!! Don't tell my Mrs!!!

There was an ebay seller last year that had about 7 brand new, old stock AR7's. Haven't seen them up for a while so he probably sold them all. I think someone on here bought one.
There's a nice, tidy one on ebay that I saw either last night or the night before.
