I have just purchased an older car and it does not play MP3 files in it's stereo.  I have extensive MP3 files and would like to know if I can convert these files to AIFF which I believe can be played in this stereo.  Is this [possible?

You can use iTunes to create playlists consisting of various songs or an album and then burn the playlists to an audio CD which can be played in any CD player.

Frankly though I think if it can't play mp3 then it cannot play AIFF.  Do not confuse a file in AIFF format with the format that is used on an audio format CD which all players can play.  I suspect that what you really need to do is burn audio format CDs.  You can do this using your mp3 files.
