Comments made in the year 1955!


That's only 54 years ago!


'I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $10.00.


'Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $1, 000.00 will only buy a used one.


'If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. 20 cents a pack is ridiculous.


'Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter


'If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.


'When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.


'I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.


'I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas .


'Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.


'I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.

25 Cents a gallon! I would even be happy if it would go down 25 cents a gallon. Love the photo, had a buddy in high school who had one him and his dad restored in to one heck of a hot rod. Might have to dig through some photos and see if I can find an old photo of it.
