    The Big Surprise with Errol!
    Question is – did he win the second part too, the $100.000?

    Errol’s winnings of $30.000 has the value today of $263,833.70, as per the inflation calculator.
    But the inflation calculator is in a way out for lunch!
    The facts are, that in 1955 one could have purchased 3 houses for $30.000 versus today with $264.000 one couldn’t buy much of a house in a town!

    Here are some interesting statistics of the value of $30.000 in 1955.
    Average Cost of a new house $10.950.00
    Average Yearly Wages $4.130.00
    Minimum Hourly Rate $1.00
    Average Cost of a new car $1,900.00
    Cost of a gallon of Gas 23 cents
    One would say Errol’s winnings were quite substantial!
