Andrew Goldstein saw the first Volkswagen Beetle roll onto his school's parking lot in 1958. He was in sixth grade, and his family's dealership was the town's main gateway for foreign cars. As Andrew grew, so did his love of the car industry. During high school, he took a job in a used car lot to gain experience before going to college, where he majored in automotive marketing. With a freshly printed degree in hand, he set to work at Riverbank Volkswagen under the watchful eye of his father, Seymour. According to Kara O'Connor of the Hour Online, Goldstein admitted that, though working for his father was difficult, "In the end it was better because now I run the business and I learned to do everything the right way."
Today, Andrew is president of Riverbank Volkswagen, and two of his sons—Seth and Eric—work by his side. Much like his father, Seth started out at a young age, cleaning up grease and eventually landing a job as a technician before ascending the ladder to service manager. Eric, the Internet manager, learned the value of hard work by cleaning gutters and cars before finding his niche online. Both sons strive, along with their father, to maintain the reputation earned by their grandfather. For an auto dealership, surviving the past 50 years is either a sign that what they're doing is right or just the result of making three left turns.
