1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD and The Comments That Went With It!

Comments made in the year 
1955!
(That's 61 years ago!) 

'I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way 
they are, it's going to be impossible
 
To buy a week's groceries for $20.00.

'Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?
It won't be long before $2,000.00 will only buy a 
used one.

'If cigarettes keep going up in price, 

I'm going to quit.
A quarter a pack is ridiculous.

'Did you hear the post office is thinking about 
charging a dime just to mail a letter
? 

'If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, 

Nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.
 ' 

'When I first started driving, 

Who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon.. 
Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

'I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more..
Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying 
DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, 
 
It seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.

'I read the other day where some scientist thinks 
it's possible to put a man on the moon by the 
end of the century. 

They even have some fellows they call astronauts 
preparing for it down in   Texas   .

'Did you see where some baseball player just signed a 
contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? 

It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be 
making more than the President.

'I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen 
appliances would be electric. 
 
They are even making electric typewriters now.

'It's too bad things are so tough nowadays.. 

I see where a few married women are having to work 
to make ends meet.

'It won't be long before young couples are going to 
have to hire someone 

To watch their kids so they can both work.

'I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the 
door to a whole lot of foreign business.

'Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the 
Government takes half our income in taxes. 

I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best 
people to congress.

'The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, 

But I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

'There is no sense going to Lincoln 
or
  Omaha anymore for a weekend, 
It costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

'No one can afford to be sick anymore, 

At $35.00 a day in the hospital it's too rich for 
my blood.'

'If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it.
'
