All My Cars, Continued

On Kauai in 1973, $600 got me a sweet 1966 VW squareback, just like the one above, but in forest green.  The floorboards had rusted out in spots, so when the roads were wet there was a lot of sloshing between the front and back seats, but a great little car.

Back on the mainland in 1975, and the owner of a 1965 Volvo 122S, also one of my favorite cars of all time.  Would still be driving it if it hadn't dropped so much of the transmission on the road.  In 1977 it was replaced by another forest green VW squareback, this time a 1968, which seemed awfully boring compared to the Volvo sedan.
