Radio Shack Catalogs online!

www.radioshackcatalogs.com has scanned previous years Radio Shack Catalogs, the oldest one is from 1946! Some years are missing, but its great for a stroll down memory lane. Some of you may not know this, but Radio Shack used to be a pretty good electronics parts source! Back in the '80s it still had lots of good parts, but had started the transition to consumer electronics, of course now its almost all consumer gear. :(

The back issue catalogs are pretty funny, they use the words
"Realistic"
"Moog"
and "Elton John"
on page 55 of the 1983 catalog! Wow, that's pretty dam unlikely. :)

If you are like me and you spent HOURS with the Radio Shack catalogs, then you should take a cruise down memory lane.
