Well, I wasn't born just yet in 1950. But I can tell you that we bought a new Chevy Impala in 1971 that cost $2300. Guess there wasn't much inflation back then. But then I was making $1.69 an hour and he made $3.25.$50 a week for groceries including meat on the table 5 nights a week, 2 cartons of cigarettes and enough dog food to feed 2 German Shepherds.Man. Did I mention that gas was 20 cents a gallon.
