The world ending question?

Ford factory 6 CD radio.........

where do all the CD's go? seriously...


My idea.. laser arm moves in and out of CD slots...


Justin's idea.. CD melts and gets stored in vials and reforms when needed. thus the "initializing" process it does...


any idea's or the real answer ?


Edit: Bob will know the answer i am sure of it...

Elevator loading system. All the cds stay in a stack and the whole stack moves up and down when you select the cd.

I believe they are stacked like this. -- represent cd and < represent laser and whatever disc you want to play lifts a little more than the others.

1 ------
laser <
2 ------
3 ------
4 ------
5 ------
6 ------

dude, the gnome stands by a big furnas and a big freezer. he puts the cd into the furnas and melts it then plays it. when you push eject he puts it in the freezer in a cd shaped mold and it hardens and spits it out at you. after about 5 years the gnome dies and gets blown through the speakers as that nasty dust that is behind your door panels

Little gnomes move the disks by hand to a wheel and laser. One gnome jumps on top of the cd and starts running really fast. The other gnomes move the laser to where it needs to be.

Ever see that Coke commercial where the guy puts his quarter in the vending machine and then it shows the whole magical fantasy land inside.......well that's similar to the interior of the 6 disk CD player. Possibly may even out do Dr.Who's telephone booth. O.k, now my age is showing.

My friend swears that my other friend's 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix is ran by little elves. He says that all the hoses are actually wood and the belts are made of hair. Then the elves party it up at night when they don't have to run the car.

You're brilliant! I always thought that Ford needed a little help in some areas. I had the premium 6 disc deck and kept having to replace them. I guess my gnomes kept dying or I had gnomes that didn't like Country and rock music.
