I was a junior in high school. Dad bought my mother a bright red 1955 Chevy convertible with a continental kit on the rear and the power pack engine (180 hp) It actually was a dog when it came to pickup, but really looked sharp when polished.
I actually remember hearing most of the comments below. They really were spoken .
For many folks, 1955 was another one of those difficult years. As the good book says, there is nothing new under the sun. So what else is different.
Susan Lipka, wife of Bishop Lipka, MDAS, passed this along. Thank you, Susan.
Comments made in the year 1955!
I’ll tell you one thing, if things
keep going the way they are,
its going to be impossible to
buy a weeks groceries for $10.00.
coming out next year? It won’t be long before $1,000.00 will
only buy a used one.
price, I’m going to quit; 20 cents
a pack is ridiculous.
thinking about charging 7 cents
just to mail a letter.
to $1.00, nobody will be able to
hire outside help at the store.
would have thought gas would
someday cost 25 cents a gallon.
Guess we would be better off leaving
the car in the garage.
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.
scientist thinks its 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 .
