In 1958 I was earning $1/Hr. Never had any pocket money until the Marines. The cars in the pic would have been dream rides at the time. Unlike Marines of today, our barracks parking lot was full of junkers. Spending our disposable income on beer seemed like a bad idea at the time, but it saved many of us from the LeJeune water crud, which seemed to have hit the brown-baggers hardest.

I thought the burgers were better when they were 15 cents.
And about 4 times the size of the pittance you get today. The fries were cooked in lard and were 100 times better than the GMO potatoes and whatever passes for cooking oil and salt substitute.
