Crossover Hit

From the Two Heads Are Better Than One file: The long-ago corporate dalliance between Frigidaire and General Motors did result in some shared technologies. Air conditioning systems developed by the appliance manufacturer were utilized in the automaker's cars [the merry Oldsmobile, in particular]. So I can't help but suspect that the AM/FM radio and cassette-tape deck found in this 1974 refrigerator—features that Spot finds so riveting—might have been caged from some Chevy. And there's little doubt in my mind that Corvette Red is the chosen hue for the fridge.
