Submission + - Kit Radio with Digital Display? 2

JabrTheHut writes: I'm driving around a 30 year old car with a broken radio — it only plays AM, and even then not very well (fades in and out, static, etc). As it's such an old car, the radio fits into a non-standard enclosure. Finding a replacement radio is next to impossible. I've tried, and most wreckers don't even stock parts for such an old car any more. I started thinking of buying a kit and doing it myself — but I can't seem to find nearly as many kits now as when I was growing up. The few kits that I've found seem to have been designed before the 80s — no display, only blind tuning, mono sound, etc. Ideally I'd like a kit that did everything — digital display, USB or other input for MP3 players, AM and FM stereo. There seems to be nothing even remotely approaching that on the market. Am I missing something or someone? Or has the kit market stagnated for the last 30 years?
