We didn't own a vehicle during our first year in Austria, but in September 1965, we bought the first of eleven Volkswagens, nine of which were transporters. If we had kept and stored our first two vehicles (pictured below), they would fetch over $300,000 at auctions today!

When we retired to America in October,2002, we purchased a ten-year-old Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon. We both loved it, so when it wore out, we bought another Roadmaster wagon, and then two more! Because these behemouths of the highway were becoming collector cars, we decided to look for a cheap daily driver to save wear and tear on our prized "woodie." That took us on a Retirement Car Odyssey of 14 vehicles in just 20 years!

If you thank that is a lot of retirement vehicles, allow me to add that I have also owned over thirty sailboats and a bunch of trailers since retiring. I enjoy repairing and restoring them and people just give me their boats. You can see pictures of these on my other website, https://www.rvharvey.com/
