    Damn! ...and I still remember 19.9 ¢/gal gas at a Hess station in
    Upstate NY in 1971. :-(

    Gas prices have exceeded the hot dog index, as have car prices. :-(

    In 1969 You could have had a Shelby 427 Cobra for $4200. Today the same
    car if intact, would start at $200K+. With a good provenance you will
    be looking at $1M+.

    See what your $4200 buys you today!

    Heck my '37 Cord only cost $1,000. Sure wish I still had it today.

    In 1970 I was in the Army and through the PX purchased a Pentax with a
    50mm lens for $147 I am pretty sure that was a discounted price
    but considering I made $249 it was a lot of money.

    Still have the camera

    Sounds like a familiar story. Could it have been one of these?

  11. Yep --- and if there's then any sort of pattern in the LSB, your
    hiding there has failed. Note: Often an encryption or compression
    output contains something like a header ...

    You really had to remind me?

    the difference between you and a vulture:
    A vulture would wait until I die, before it eats my heart out.

    Just to twist the blade a little bit more.

  15. I don't know how you come up with $1000. As far as I know, a new Cord,
    in 1937, cost $2600 in dollars of the time and this would be about
    $40,000 in present day dollars. I wish people would adjust historic
    prices for changes in the CPI.

    In 1961 I bought my first slr - a Miranda D with interchangable
    viewfinders and a 50mm 2,8 preset lens ( got a Miranda 250mm tele a
    month later) the cost was ?69 and the lens quality was superb - shutter
    speeds only went to 1/500 sec. The focusing screen was user
    interchangable but took quite a while and was fiddly. I also purchased
    the magnifying viefinder which (if I am right was 1x and 5x depending
    on which way your eye piece was). The lens mount was a dual one with
    preset lenses using the inner mount and auto lenses using the outer
    mount.

    Hi,

    I must be older than you guys. I remember, "fill your tank for $1.-".

    Hi,

    In 1938, when a friend opened a new car dealership, the mechanics earned
    $12.- per week, and the Service Manager got $25.- per week. The subway
    was 10 cents, as were the neighborhood movies, and for $1.50 one could
    buy a steak dinner. That was all before Washington started printing
    funny money.
