Title: Miles, our memorable '66 Fastback
Where: This is Miles, a '66 Fastback my family purchased from the proverbial "little old lady" in the summer of 1971. We summered in Long Island, NY and lived in Puerto Rico during the school year; Miles was shipped each summer to Long Island to be our faithful family car. There he enjoyed all the summers with us, sometimes participating in childhood adventures, like when my 13 year old cousin quietly pushed him out of the garage and jump started him down the road to take us kids for rides through the neighborhood. In 1981 miles became my first car during my senior high school year in PR. Miles was a beloved & quirky member of the family and we still talk about him today. I just recently found this photo of Miles, parked outside my house in PR.
Story: My first car was a 66 fastback named Miles. I just purchased a 2011 Tiguan, also blue like Miles was. I am totally loving this car!
