It’s tough to shop for car enthusiasts; besides a subscription to a hot rod magazine, you might want to consider rocking their holidays with a new car audio system. Pantell’s Music Box in Antioch has the perfect gift for the car junkie on your holiday list.

The Pantell family has been installing audio systems since the mid 1960s. They began installing automobile record players and four- and eight-track systems, and now install state-of-the-art navigation, security systems and bluetooth- and iPod-integrated systems on cars, motorcycles and boats.

The business was originally a full-service Texaco gas station, started by George Pantell Sr. in 1950. In 1960, his son George Jr. took over the business and, by 1965, turned it into one of the first car-stereo shops in the area. George’s sons Keith, Mark and Ralph, and grandsons Tyler and Alex, now run the business.
