  20. Sign in front of a service statin in 1955 that breaks down the price of gas. I worked at a filling station in 1956 and we did NOT make 4-cents per gallon profit at that time. It was more like 2-1/2-cents per gallon.
    Notice how much the government was making....and this was in 1955!!

    That was a pretty serious body shop. I grew up in a body shop & in todays world cars that were rebuilt there would be scraped today. Frame racks,porta power,& so much lead that most body men didn't last into retirement very long. Most shops didn't have a paint booth so paint was done last thing of the day & rubbed out in the morning. We teenagers rubbed out paint on Saturday morning & at noon got to go with the grown ups to lunch & have a burger& bowl of chilie. That was growing up in the 40s& 50s.

    My first job was in a body shop in 1960. Cars had rust holes 2 years from new. A lot of our jobs were rust repairs. Rocker panels, patch panels, bondo and black magic. The boss would shoot the complete repaints at closing time, then shut the exhaust fans down and lock the spray booth until morning. The old alkyd enamel was terrible stuff, and he'd come out of the booth with his teeth the color of whatever he shot. Never wore a respirator.
