Sometimes you can find some interesting snapshots of history hiding inside the covers we like to collect.

I found this four page 1927 'Chevrolet Service Bulletin' (actually an advertisement for 'Gene's Auto Place). Being an old car kind of guy, I found it interesting. I especially like the image of the 'auto rotisserie'. These are commonly seen today in restoration shops after the car body is removed from the chassis for body and paint work. Finding the center of gravity of a auto body shell is one thing, I cannot imagine trying to find the center of gravity of a fully functional automobile.

Very cool. And very expensive.
If you want to compare the value of a $1.00 Commodity in 1927 there are four choices. In 2019 the relative:
real price of that commodity is $14.70
real value in consumption of that commodity is $32.40
labor value of that commodity is $53.50 (using the unskilled wage) or $62.70 (using production worker compensation)
income value of that commodity is $80.50
economic share of that commodity is $222.00

Great piece of ephemera. Thanks for posting.
I am a big fan of the TV series "Graveyard Cars" and the Mopar workshop,
They use a modern version of that.
