LOL!

I remember an eBay seller who used an attractive woman in a black
swimsuit to "model" his merchandise. By way of comparison, Rawk Gurl
is relatively inhibited. :-)

Regardless of how the items are presented this is rare stuff,
particularly that player, of which probably far less than 100 were
made. No wonder the bidders are all people with handles harking back
to the early days of Lasers such as discovision1 and LD1100. I'd bid
on the Ford discs myself if it weren't for the shipping restrictions.

The Player is the PR-7820, which went through 3 editions during it's
life. This is the "DiscoVision" model. There was also a Model 1 and
Model 3 unit. Accross the three editions, there were well over 60,000
of these built and sold. An excess of 30,000 were sold to GM dealers
across North America for their training and promotional use. Another
20,000 (or so) were shipped in "Dragon's Lair" arcade games from
Cinematronics.

Ah sorry, I wasthinking it was a model referred to in a laserviews
magazine article regarding "obscure" models. Automobile promotional
discs were probably the single most succesful new concept introduced
by Discovison. I guess you know about "dead sides" with these
demonstration video being among the orphaned pressings playable after
removing the coating? Also some sides of films never officially
released by MCA have been found.
