A run of the mill car was $500 (or 25 ounces of gold) that extrapolates to $40,000 today. Plenty of bare bones vehicles far better than those of yesteryear for half of that.
How would it compare with a more stable commodity such as a loaf of bread or a pound of sugar or a gallon of milk?
I have never researched gold to that extent but I did research silver and found that an ounce of silver would buy you the same amount of bread today as it would in 1950... but a dollar? Not even close. If I remember right it was about 15 loaves for a dollar in 1950, where as today you are lucky to get 1 loaf for under 2 dollars.
A 1200 sq foot home at that time sold for approx$4000 (200 oz of gold that's .17 ounces per square foot....today that would translate to nearly $260 per sq. foot) that would make an "average" 2000 sq ft house of today $520,000.
That's about right for So Cal.
In today's dollars, that's $4.74 for bread, $25.28 for milk, and $23.70 for eggs.

Honestly, where does the "Moochelle" nickname come from?
Hindsight is a ****..... If we could have simply raised enough funds to offer Moooochelle + Barry a role in a Movie or TV show I really think that we could have avoided this whole thing ... As it continues to seem more and more apparent that both of them are truly DESPERATE to see themselves as some sort of quasi-celebrities ... Ugh I cannot think of too many people that I have less respect for than them currently

Hey, did you know Border Patrol agents are fond of destroying the food and water caches left in the desert crossing so people don’t die of hunger and thirst? 179 people died crossing between Mexico and Arizona last year, where this happened.
Way to contribute to the deaths of innocent people, sworn officers of the American government!
