Boy, that babysitting story reminded me:

The summer I was eleven, I babysat five kids all day while their folks were at work, for the magnificant wage of thirty-five cents an hour! Seemed like riches to me...

I was saving for the Anne of Green Gables book series and by jingo I got every one. And I still have them, too!

On the other hand, some things get cheaper. In 1989 I purchased a "huge" 91MB hard drive to use with our brand new Digidesign Sound Tools recording system. $1500.00 for the drive (and it was used!)

In 1975 i bought a slighty used 1971 Honda 600 Coupe for $350.00
It comfortably sat 2 adults in front and 2 kids in the back.
It averaged just over 50 mpg. Easily ran at 65mph all day long when needed.

Nowadays you would pay $XX,XXX for a car anywhere near the same capabilities and, really? Not near as cute!

Mine was the model in blue. : )

Oh how i miss that car!

Really sounds like you are talking about my poop fly. $400 great fuel economy and fun to drive. When I bought it, a year and a half ago, I figured if it got me through the winter, I would have got my moneys worth out of it. Now I am on my second winter, and just keeps going, and getting uglier. I used it to pick-up trailer parts in Seattle. The combined cost of the car, and the gas was about the same price as the shipping on the parts would have been. I have posted this picture before, but it seems apropos. Besides the front and back shelves that you can see, there are also a set of 1300 dinette cushions in there.
Mine is pop bottle green, hence the name.

Your sure right about technology...so why are cars so expensive???
