Hope this hasn't already been posted. I'm sure folks will get a chuckle if you haven't already seen it.

Except 25 bucks were worth a lot more back then.
Think of what the average pay rates were during the great depression which started a year or two later.
If I remember the great depression started in 29. Anyone know the average amount people made in 28?
Still is a pretty cool piece of history.

And people still complained about the cost of quality repairs even back then.

Well, when people made $4.00 a day, $25.00 was 6 days work.

Even at only $11.00 an hour, that's $528.00 of today's money...
