The Price of a '37 Studebaker

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the $665 price tag of a brand new car in this 1936 ad is equivalent to spending $10,467.91 today. Can anyone buy a new car for "only" ten grand today? Bring back the groovy good old days! And the 5 cent cigar, while you're at it.
