    I miss them becuase your Atari, VCR, or cable box fit perfectly on top of the TV. No need for any shelves - just plop it on top of your TV!

    Boy, do I miss those wooden console models, too! If I had my druthers, I'd get another one in a heartbeat, but, alas, they don't make them anymore.

    Ah, the old wooden cabinet floor model TVs. The thing I hated about the things is that if you kicked back in the recliner and put up the footrest, you couldn't see the damned TV! But I was a kid then, so I would usually be lying on the living room floor with my chin resting in my hands. That was the prime spot for watching these old relics.

    My grandmother still has this Colortrak model, it was made around that time and she still uses it. She'll be 93 in March (200 I admit, I'm more of a Zenith fan (the two major rivals have usually been RCA vs. Zenith), but you would be surprised how many RCA ColorTraks, Zenith Chromacolor II's and System 3's from the mid to late 1970's and early 1980's are still in use today. I have a 1982 Zenith 25" System 3 that we got in early 1983 and it is still in use right now. She shows her age a little but her picture is still as good as when we got her.

    This commercial has to be around mid-late 70s or early 80s.

    Since when did Little Orphan Annie know so much about TV's?
