Ditto what freqs said.

If you want to see the photos, type the model(s) you are interested in into a search engine, Rigpix, or eBay, and you are sure to find photos.

I guess this is what you wanted. Here's one from my own collection. It's a Motorola Mocat. I bought it for $5 at a yard sale a while back and it even has its own carrying case that has "Motorola" engraved on the side.

The cm555 was the mobile version of the cb555 if that's what you meant?

Gewecke, that's a sharp-looking rig you posted. Wish I had one of those in my collection. I'm a sucker for old base stations.

roadranger, does 14.260 on the ham radio have some significance...like is that a freq ham-truckers use, or is it just where your VFO happened to be at the time?

I happend to be listening to a conversation and decided at that point, on a break, to snap a picture of this long thought out install. I wanted to save it for later. Now the Alinco has been removed. It sits in a box, in the truck, for when I really need it. The antennas are still mounted. All I need do is connect everything, if the need arises. I was unsure if this or the helping divice for the CB was frying nearby computers. So far, they haven't died on their own. I haven't wanted to risk operating the Alinco mobile. I think the wiring on the studs are even a smaller guage on the inside of the dash.

Wow... hard to believe there was/is enough demand to support all those models for all those years. They were fun toys, gotta admit.
