Cool The Rabbit!

The original Golf was named the Rabbit in North America to give it a cute, cuddly image. (The Golf name is short for Golf-Strom, the German word for Gulf Stream.) Here is a 1980 model with its proud owner.



The Rabbit GTI was introduced as a 1983 model and was available for only two years before the all-new second-generation GTI was introduced. Here is a classic 1984 Rabbit GTI.
