DRIVER SEAT> 40 Years of Volkswagen Golf GTI

This year, Volkswagen is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the popular VW Golf - the best selling European car of all time! More than 30 million Golf models have been sold since the Golf Mk1 went on sale in May 1974 in Europe (the car made its debut in the United States as the Volkswagen Rabbit in December of the same year). Seven generations later, the successful formula remains the same: compact, yet elegant styling; space-efficient interior design; small displacement yet powerful engines; and responsive front-wheel-drive handling.

While on a short trip to San Francisco, I had the unique opportunity to test drive both the all new 2015 Volkswagen Golf Mark 7 and a 1984 Golf GTI Mark1. What an awesome experience that was!   Read more...

Official Wörthersee 2010 Video of the Low-Familia from Thomas Diewald on Vimeo.

Every year, droves of Euro-inspired enthusiasts come out to a little city in Austria for a fun-filled weekend of girls, beer, cars (and more beer). This year there were some amazing cars –  from a first gen Volkswagen rabbit (Mk1) swapped with a 1.8t to sick Audis sitting just right on big wheels riding on Air.

I have to hand it to the Europeans, they sure know how to do up their rides – everything from getting the stance of the car just perfect to even the minute details in chrome and the polishing of every single nut and bolt. That’s just pure dedication. The theme that seems to be running all throughout Europe is Air-ride. I saw it much more this year than ever before. The versatility and ride quality were just amazing – it just makes sense.

Here’s a video from the guys at LOW-FAMILIA as I just happened to come across their video and thought I might share it amongst you guys to give you a sneak peek at how the Europeans do up their rides.

Big -ups to Thomas Dieweld for putting together such a sick video of the show.
