If this was over here, someone would have long ago snapped it up and brought it back to its former glory. The Squire was as much a part of middle-class suburbia then as minivans & SUVs are now. The amount of poor taste applied over 19 feet is astronomical. Don’t know if I could afford it though. I remember riding with him all over town sitting on the front seat arm rests (these are the days before car seat rules) as a 3 year old..eating cookies while he smoked cigars…ahh the 70’s! You do not acquire Vancouver is a different place; our pollution tests and class consciousness mean old cars are very rare indeed.
