The Palotay Family's Squarebacks
The story of The Palotay family's Squarebacks:Here's proof that we are a strange family. Front to back: Dad's '71. He's the original owner and only driver--the rest of us only drive automatics. He bought it straight off the assembly line in Wolfsburg in 1970. Julia's '71. It's an automatic, bought in 1996 from the original owner. Martha's '69, also automatic, bought from a friend (the original owner) in 1976 with 27,692 miles on it. It just passed 200,000 this month. All of these are daily drivers, more or less. The '69 survived four years of college (3 hours one way) with one major breakdown (the transmission died coming home from a Renaissance Faire, which meant pushing the car to the nearest gas station--dressed in full Elizabethan). The blue '71 is getting very close to 300,000 miles, and the yellow passed 100,000 two years ago. They've all had their engines rebuilt, naturally. Enjoy! The Palotay family
