You know when your grandfather or uncle or even father tells you while looking at the car to buy “Wow! Car became so expensive. When I was your age, I bought **** (put whatever car name) for $**** (whatever amount)!”
Well, Jalopnik did another interesting article about inflation and car. Is current cars is price as back then?
I’m surprised to see several cars in that lists that were under the inflation & over the inflation.
Under inflation: BMW 3-series – Current 3 series (335i) is near $4k under ’84 325e. Way to go BMW!
Over inflation: Mustang – Mustang, the American cheap sports car that everyone love (maybe not everyone)… & Ford is abusing that love and inflation as an excuse to bump the price $5k MORE (since ‘64.5).
