Cheap Mail

This press photo was taken on May 1, 1965, back  in the time before text messaging and emails, when the US Post Office had large quantities of mail to deliver. The caption with the photo, which was taken in Michigan, states that the VWs were leased from Wolverine Car Lease Co., of Ypsilanti. The cars were chosen because they were leased for 55 cents an hour when the cheapest lease on an American car at the time was 80 cents an hour. The Old Motor photo.
