1965 - my very first car

Newer Older

I like this replica, because it helps me to activate some funny memories: as I helped my mother to learn car driving (we landed upside down in a small lake, deep in the forest)... read my blog article at flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/11/16/weekly-photo-chal...
comment by Julie Alicea: My father would only buy these cars and there were 5 of us who would have to stuff ourselves into that car. and to make matters worse he loved to travel, we travelled all over Europe in that little car and then he brought it to Puerto Rico and we travelled all over the island in it, then we moved to the USA and travelled in almost every state in the union stuffed like sardines in that car. My sister and I had an imaginary line in the back seat where she was not allowed to cross and vice versa, and if she put one finger on my side we would start fighting like cats and dogs in the back of the VW, imagine that with 5 people in it!
comment by "stumbleon": My father had a 1954 VW with a split rear window like yours. Then I had a 1971 VW which I loved. I even lived in it for a while.

    Genau - das war auch mein erster. Mit dem geteilten Rückfenster. Meiner hatte noch die Winke-Blinker, die ausklappten. Die mußten dann aber leider umgebaut werden.
    Glaub - den hatte ich so um 1963-64.

    Nice story. And a wonderful picture. I like the colors very much. The square format makes it perfect.
