Fremont Nebraska is located about 60 miles north of Lincoln, or just west of Omaha in eastern Nebraska.
This may be the Ford owner. If so, he's almost seventy years old when he registers his T:
Registration fee of$2 in 1911 is equal to $49.36 in 2016.
Here's the inflation calculator I used.
Thank you Jay. I use 25 times every 1 dollar as a rule of thumb for my calculations, usually in the 1900-1910 time frame.
I played with the calculator you linked. Look at the inflation jump between our war years of 1917-1919. I had not thought of this before, the Model T dropping in price throughout it's production, and it dropped more significantly in price during these years (1917-1919) when the big inflation factor is added.
Thanks again for the thread and calculator link.
