    We all know that cars are expensive, but how does that compare to 1971? I ran some figures and the results are very surprising!

    2018 Median Income=$59,055
    Cost of 2018 Challenger SRT= $49,495
    Percentage of Annual Income= 84%

    1971 Median Income= $10,430
    Cost of 1971 Hemi Challenger= $4,500
    Percentage of Annual Income= 43%

    yep, they were pretty cheap back in the day. expensive as hell now and I would have never imagined me paying $500 a month for a vehicle.
