Boy, does that bring back memories!
I was just about to turn 16, and my Dad was manager of a finance company (Seaboard). He had repo'ed a new '64 Chevy Malibu, first year for that model, yellow with a black vinyl top and black interior, and it had one of those new Muntz 4-track tape players. He drove it for a couple of weeks. Oh how I wanted that car!
Madman Muntz. I remember the commercials. Quite a guy.
Yeah. You have to buy it at that price! Would not want to tick off my Performer though! That would be some serious patio drama!I already have a Summit charcoal, and really have no reason for another, although I HAVE thought about it….
That would 100% push me over the edge.
"The chain rose to prominence throughout the Tri-State area (New York-New Jersey-Connecticut) as much for its prices as for its memorable radio and television commercials, featuring a frenetic, "crazy" character played by radio DJ Jerry Carroll (who copied most of his shtick from early TV commercial pioneer, used car and electronics salesman Earl "Madman" Muntz). At its peak, Crazy Eddie had 43 stores in four states and reported more than $300 million in sales."
