I wonder why they skipped 4 years and went right to 5...

There were over 8 million Model-T Fords in service in 1929.

Imagine that, a car that would run for 5 years! Wow, times have certainly changed.

Hard to get an exact hourly earnings for the era as there was no "minimum" wage. Seems to range from 33 cents to 56 cents an hour, depending on location. Those numbers actually declined until 1937, due to the great depression. It's interesting to note that this solicitation was sent out in June, and the crash happened in October, so at this time, things where still rosy.

I would love to have someone rebuild my engine and transmission now for $20-$25 labor.
