A blast From the Past

I just purchased this 1979 1/2 and yes this is a real year for this LTD Ranchero.

Talk about a Sticker Shock.. Do you rememeber when Car manufactures Offered Infant carriers and Tot-Guards?

Infant carriers were only $21.00 and Tot Guards ( a device that encompassed the the child around there legs and kept them seated (would be nice for extremely unruly kids in the car) for $36.00.
Now todays car seats range from $60- $130.
How is that for costs of todays economy? Since 1979 things have went up dramatically.

"Since 1979 things have went up dramatically." And just now you're finding this out? Wow, guess school didn't do much good did it?
