My favorite small town in all the world. Wish I could afford to live there
rainhater, I agree, that was a lot of money in 1959 for a car radio. I was still in High School and working nights and weekends at a local ESSO gas station making $ 1.00 an hour, I thought at that time $ 1 an hour was good wages. Two years later I went into the U.S. Air Force for $ 95.00 a Month.
Russ, you are so right. Adjusting for inflation, your entry pay into the air force in 1959 would be near $750 in 2013.
Today, somebody in a combat zone may be making only a little over $1,100 -- in today's dollars.
