    Legal delivery to: BMW of North America (Montvale, NJ) on April 26, 1976

     

    Port of Entry: Elizabeth, NJ

     

    Delivering dealer: Dick Horrigan Volkswagen, 1211 Lancaster Avenue, Reading, PA

     

    Initial delivery: July 30, 1976

     

    The car arrived at the dealer in June 1976 ( probably 6 to 8 weeks after its manufacturing date): I know I looked at the car more than a month before I purchased it. I purchased the car new on July 30, 1976. As of January 15, 2019, I still own the car. This was not part of a plan!

     

    The first photo below, taken in February 1977, is the earliest photo of the car I’ve been able to locate. It was taken at my parents’ home in Wyomissing, PA. At the time, it was still wearing its Pennsylvania Bicentennial (1976-only) license plate, all of which were retired by the state in February and March 1977. The car has snow tires on the rear in this photo and there is a small whip antenna for my CB radio. Cool? Or what?
