Do you remember when. . .

4 Apr

I remember riding in the new red ’60 Ford convertible that Bob Jergens brought to school just after his parents had bought the new model. It was a major model change from ’59 so it attracted a lot of attention. Here are a few other things about the price of things.  

If you have $100 Converted from 1960 to 2005 it would be equivalent to $679.09 today

In 1960 a new house cost $12,700.00 and by 1969 was $15,500.00

In 1960 the average income per year was $5,315.00 and by 1969 was $8,540.00

In 1960 a gallon of gas was 25 cents and by 1969 was 35 cents

In 1960 the average cost of new car was $2,600.00 and by 1969 was $3,270.00

    With saddness we learned that George “Bob” Jergens passed away this week. With fond memories we link to his obituary w/ lots of pictures of Bob & his family- including his Southeast Class of ’60 yearbook pic. http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=George-Jergens&lc=2373&pid=175079028&mid=6482280
