Re: Spark plugs on old Vauxhalls

Many years ago, on my mom's 1964 Chevelle Malibu, the radio died. My dad pulled it out of the dash with the intent of taking a look at it later. They went to go somewhere, and discovered that nothing in the car worked right. Turn on the headlights, and the overhead light turns on. Turn on the windshield wipers, and the gauges go back and forth. My dad eventually figured out that all the grounding was done through the radio, and reinstalled it. Many years later, when my brother was driving it, we bolted an aftermarket radio to the bottom of the dash - leaving the original, nonfunctional radio in place.
