When I was a teenager working at a certain Italian grocery store chain, my (male) coworkers would drool over issues of Auto Trader and plan their next ride. No one was spending a ton on these (very) used cars, and I would suggest that their cost wasn't too much above the $2000-3000 that some young folks spend on their computers and phones.

I can believe that.

Partly because I was working at probably the same certain Italian grocery store chain, and that memory holds true for me too. :-)

Other than stereos and the game consoles and cheap computers of the day (and my "day" would be the mid-to-late-1980s) there was not a whole lot of techie stuff on which to spend part-time and summer wages.
