"I have never seen this VW picture before, I cannot remember taking it. It is of a 1961 Yellowish-creamy-green colour car that dad bought in Toronto. It was a great leap forward for us because Dad had been driving a 1955 Ford Mainline that he had bought for $25. But VW this was a real car. But you have to realise that I had only been living in North America for a short time and American cars were very strange to me."
