A Nigerian man, Ayo Ojeniyi, has taken people on a trip down memory lane after sharing a photo of a Beetle car that was sold for N3,908.40 in 1982. Ojeniyi also shared the receipt of the car purchase and had a question for people, what can one buy with such an amount of money today.


Reacting to the photo, a Facebook user identified as Aliyu Hamagam said the minimum wage in 1982 was N120, suggesting that a Beetle car was expensive back in the day. In his words: "In 1982, the national minimum wage was only N120. So you can understand what it means for one to raise about N4000 for a Beetle car.

I Wale Keshinro wrote: "Despite the fact VW beatles was N3908, how many family members owned cars in that era unlike now. 6 out of 10 extended families produce multiple car owners." James Omeiza "How many people could afford the volkswagen in 1982? But today, thats what an average labourer earns at a construction site per day. "There are more rich people today than we had in 1982."
