In the photo below Charis Waters is showing the size comparison to a person of the beautifully designed console cabinet  1986 Curtis Mathes Model A2529RC. I remember being on the Design team of this wonderfully made console. So many of these consoles work as good today as they did back in the 1980's.In the photo below show that this Curtis Mathes model A2529RC has a wonderful control panel that was state of the art back in the year 1986, so many of the components for this model came from the same factories in Texas that made circuit-boards for the Saturn V Rocket and military electronic hardware, built to last.In the photo below you can see the detail of this chassis that has a lot of made in America parts. As is stated above many of the components came from the same factories in Texas that made circuit-boards for the Saturn V Rocket and military electronic hardware, built to last.

Which explains why you can still see that in they year 2014 she still is going strong as she did in 1986.The American workmanship has proven itself with the test of time. She as the marvelous Vacation switch in the back, which is the classic Curtis Mathes trade mark of the 1980's era. Built for folks that had Vacation home and could afford to spend more for the best color television made in that era.As Grantley Waters can tell you they don't make them like this anymore. Sadly many of these classics are thrown away and they are still working as good as the day they were made when they are crushed in the trash compactor. Let us keep these American beauties for future generations to appreciate and enjoy. Sadly they don't make Televisions in Texas anymore.  The tag tells it all, made in Texas by  Americans who took pride in their work.

Just ask Grantley Waters, he can tell you this is a well made Texan beauty. We need to save our past on TV at a time ...
