On a semi-slow day where everyone's not at work, I thought we'd have a contest! First person to correctly answer the following wins choice of a set of wheel locks or a cargo net for their Pilot, courtesy of me! :)

1. What does the first digit of your VIN mean?

2. Honda part number and list price of a rear wiper arm for a Pilot

3. In my avatar is a picture of a stereo receiver. What model is it?

4. What honda-pilot.org member lives in the same area as me?

5. Who is credited with the invention of modern electronic television?

First correct post wins! :D

1) First number of VIN is the country of origin.

2) Who knows, I'd call Tim but I'm in California on vacation right now.

3) Hmmmm....couldn't zoom in on the avatar....what's the resolution of that pic....40x20? I'll take a wild guess and say it's a Marantz.

4) Some dork named WNYPilotGuy.....hey wait...that's me!!!!

5) Some dork named Philo Taylor Farnsworth invented the TV. And that's NOT me.

Well....that's the best I could do. But if anyone knows the answer to 2 and 3, they can always borrow my answers to 1, 4, and 5. But if you borrow my answers, I get to borrow your Pilot for a week. Only fair.....right?

So I guess the person that gets the receiver name is the winner at this point.........

Clue: It's not a Marantz, McIntosh, Fisher, or Pioneer. 900 watts true RMS, sold for about $2,000 new in 1978. And yes, I have one :)

Wild guess time

How about Technics, Denon or Audiovox?

It is either Sansui G-8000 or G-9000...

Sansui G-8000 provides 120watts per channel into 8ohms and
Sansui G-9000 provides 150watts per channel...

Based on your description 900watts... I will say it is G-9000...
Since 900 divide by 150watts = 5 channels...


Hope I win...

We have a winner!

Some good work, PeterF! Send me a PM with your desired item and address.

That receiver is a screamer for sure.....just the thing to go with my Altecs (the Altecs are very efficient, but the size matches nicely :) )

5 channels, SanDave? ;) That thing was thought of long before a center channel was contemplated :D. Incidentally, I've got a G-901 (the European/Japanese version of the G-9000) in the living room powering my "home theater", for lack of better words.
