The Watsons plan to set out on a 1,000 mile car trip from Flint, Michigan to Birmingham, Alabama. Mr. Watson buys a TrueTone AB-700 Ultra-Glide for the car. This is a record player that you mount on the dashboard of a car and that is specially designed not to skip from the movement of the car while driving. The Ultra-Glide plays 45 rpm records, which were about twice the diameter of a CD and played one song per side. Ultra-Glides really did exist, and were sold for about 10 years beginning in the late 1950s.
