    They were a standard fixture in vehicles for 20 years, but the cassette decks which brought tunes to our travels are out of date now

    In-car entertainment: The cassette player was a stalwart in cars in the 1980s and 1990s

    Many of us remember the joy of the in-car cassette, giving us the greatest sounds when we borrowed our parent's car to impress our friends.

    But it turns out young people nowadays don't have the same connection with the audio sound system.

    A young man who was baffled as to their purpose stopped in to see a garage mechanic complaining that the cassette deck has scratched his iPhone - after he'd inserted it, thinking it was an iPhone dock.



    The pictures, which were shared by Mike Smith at Buick GMC on Facebook, show the phone fitting perfectly into the slot intended for audio cassettes.

    But it also reveals the unlucky scratches sustained by the technology from a future time.

    More than 39,000 people have liked the post so far, with many decrying the young man's naivety.

    Teresa Langdon commented: "This is our future leaders? SCARY" while Halinyah Yerry added: "Goes to show, people so don't know their history."

    I'll never forget my grandfather buying a brand new Caddy in 1982, and grandmom saying, "It says it a tape playah, but they don't fit!" as she tried to cram an 8track into a cassette slot.

    I remember about 8 years ago at my parents' 50th anniversary party, I bought a bunch of
    disposable cameras and gave them out to people so they could take pics.
    My niece looked at it, held it out in front of her, and said, "why can't I see the picture I just took?"

    My youngest still stares at me in disbelief when we stumble across a payphone someplace and I tell her they were a necessary form of communication back in the day.

    I had one of these bad mo-fo's in my first car.

    Pioneer Super Tuner. Looking back it sounded better and was way cheaper than the shit you generally get in cars today

    A few years back while we were having a family at a hall (maybe VFW), my sister asked my nephew (who is now 23) to call their house from the phone in the place because they weren't getting any cell reception. The phone was a rotary phone and he stood there staring at it and finally went back to my sister asking her how to use it. We all busted out laughing.

    A couple of weeks ago we stopped by Howe Caverns in upstate NY. While walking around we actually saw a phone booth! The ironic thing was there was a sign on it saying it wasn't in service, but it was being kept there as a past reminder, almost like a museum piece. If it worked I would've called anyone just for the nostalgia.

    I wish were possible to give this entire generation a bad beating.
    :lol: many people actually bought into this and microwaved their phones.
