Ranger429, thanks for the numbers. I was 16 years old in '79, flipping burgers after school at a Carl's Jr.

That was good money for me then, I was 17 and a 1/2 then and went to the Ford dealer with my dad and put a deposit on my new truck. I would not of been able to do it without him as he was the co-signer for me. The truck sat parked in the driveway till my 18th birthday when I went to the DMV and finally got my drivers lisence.

No problem Andy. When I worked at the gas station it was more than just putting in the gas. We did windows and checked the oil in all cars unless they didn't want it done. Once in a while a customer would give a dollar tip for doing that.

OK, I Have Gathered The Following Information.

What cost $15,000 in 1979 would cost $43,753.83 in 2009.

What cost $15,000 in 1973 would cost $71,628.57 in 2009.

What cost $15,000 in 1976 would cost $55,905.28 in 2009.

(I Read Somewhere, Can't Remember Where, That Super Camper Special's Cost $15,000 in '75/'76, Due to The American Road Camper...) Sound's Like it's Possible. Although, I wasn't Born for another 18 Year's, So I couldn't say...Do you Have any Idea Ranger-429...?
