Will the longplay die asked hobby in 1962
Here's one that is not really about cars, but still a nice "milestone" in history. In 1962 the magazine hobby asked whether the longplay (the black 30 cm disc we used to listen to Music ...) will die! Well, it actually almost did die, but much later than anticipated. And the alternative offered in 1962 didn't win the hearts of the consumer neither. And yes, the lady on the picture also looks pretty out of fashion today. And yes, there are two cars as well, and you probably recognize them easily.
