Ena rola filma - no. 1 Golf II (call for entries)
Wikipedia: “The Volkswagen Golf Mk2 succeeded the Mk1 as Volkswagen’s volume seller from 1983 and remained in (German) production until late 1992. In comparison to its predecessor, its wheelbase grew slightly (+ 75 mm (3.0 in)), as did exterior dimensions (length + 180 mm (7.1 in), width + 55 mm (2.2 in), height + 5 mm (0.2 in)). Weight was up accordingly by about 120 kg (264.6 lb). Exterior design, developed in-house by VW design director Schäfer, kept the general lines of its Giugiaro-designed predecessor, but was slightly more rounded. All told, about 6.3 million second-generation Golfs were built.”
Golf II is an icon of road culture in Europe, and especially on Balkan peninsula. In Slovenia it has effected the look of countryside over the past 30 years and the understanding, what quality made car can do.
Nowadays golf II is symbol of rural areas trough whole Slovenia, although in last years golf has gained the look of a rebel. For some it is a piece o junk, a box on the road, while for the others it is the finest car ever made. Das auto.
What are your experiences with the car? How we understand golf’s cult today? What will happen to all of the cars? How can our imagination change the iconic look? How to by one? Where to look for it? Who is the driver?
