Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Louis. I have good memories of growing up with a Radio Shack in my neighborhood since I moved to Denver in 1965. Even as late as 2012, I had chance to go in looking for a pack of resistors to repair the odometer-shift selector light on the console board of my 1999 Buick Century. The clerk went to a huge cabinet and pulled out exactly the ones I needed. $2 of parts and a fine tipped soldering gun, with a (still) steady hand, got it fixed. Still works.
