My first Alfa was an 85 Graduate. It came with no radio, and the dealer didn't install one. Unfortunately, the shop that installed my bent the delete plate, so I tossed it.
My second Alfa was an 87 Graduate. Same deal about the radio, except the shop didn't bend the plate, but of course I lost it.
As much as I agree with the "No Stinking Radio" at times, there are times you want one, whether it's a long trip, or bad weather with the top up, or to play at a picnic because your speakers are much better than the what is available otherwise.
As for "Listen to the Engine" crowd, there was a humor piece in one of the car mags years ago (I forget if it was C+D or R&T) that matched cars with certain accessories/road trip items. The answers were along the lines of:
Rolls Royce - Do you have any Grey Poupon?"
Porsche - "Don't Eat in the Car!"
56 Thunderbird: American Graffiti Soundtrack
Porsche: "Listen to the Engine, dammit!"
