Were those NY prices? Gosh half that and you had the top of the line in eastern Nebraska in 69. BTW my sophomore year at Tekamah-Herman HS.
I remember my dad forgetting his glasses and I had to read the sales sticker on a car for him. He paid $6779 for a Brand new 1970 (early relase) Cadillac Eldorado. My mom had a fit that he spent that much money on as she called it "Damn useless piece of sh**" So my dad dutifully hauled chicken feed home in the trunk when he had to. I got to vacuum the trunk.
