1991 Acura NSX: Shattering My Youth

November 30, 2011


I noted previously that the NSX, besides being a wonderful drive, permits me to relive my youth in the form of my old mixtapes. Last night, I subjected acquainted my girlfriend to the finer points of Phil Collins' early work as we headed out for burgers. This morning, however, all that nostalgia came to a sad, sad end.

I switched out the tape for another one and I heard a click inside the deck. Then the tape ejected. I inspected the cassette and saw that the tape had snapped. Bummer. Thankfully, it wasn't a tape that I had too much of an emotional attachment to. I tried another tape (again, one that I wasn't even sure what was on it) and "snap."

Yup, it looks like the tape deck has either malfunctioned, or is trying to tell me that my adolescent taste in music sucks. Perhaps both. I hope there's a fix for this. Until then, it's radio or CDs.
