Hello, There is another thread going on discussing the value of the one piece fan shrouds for 1970 L34 cars (which I think are the same for the LS3 cars). I didn’t want to hijack the other thread, but wanted to get some information on inflation, which I don’t completely understand. I googled the definition which says “a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money”. That was more or less my understanding of the concept before I looked it up. During the above mentioned forum discussion on the value of this hard to find part, one of the members mentioned that he bought one for $400 from D&R classic automotive. I’m waiting to hear back from him to see what year he bought that fan shroud for $400. I’m just curious how much the price would go up in say 20 years, only taking inflation into consideration. (I’m not sure that it was 20 years. Could have been a lot less). I’m only asking because I tend to overpay for older/rare parts, because in the back of my mind, I know I was making $28 an hour in 2001. I’m still doing the same job today and making $57 an hour. I’m just reaching out to the guys that understand economics and seeing if they can tell me roughly what $400 from 20 years ago would be today. I’m not sure that the other member bought that fan shroud 20 years ago, i’m Just putting a round number on it. Thanks for any info or input!
