My Father-In-Law hates to throw away anything. While dating, they had a 19" Magnavox tv sitting on top of a barely working 19" console. I don't mean just a console tv...I mean a 6' long piece of furniture, complete with built-in speakers and a flip up top with a turntable, radio and 8-track!
He did keep some cool gear, including the 1st television they owned, a still working '50s RCA TV.
