I’m an complete fiend for a tidy Mk1 Volkswagen Golf. I can spot just one from a mile absent, can inform you the probable calendar year from the rear slam panel, and still try to very own a thoroughly clean example one day.

Component of the Mk1’s attraction is its desirable minor shape the straightforward Guigaro-penned strains lend themselves nicely to all types of kinds.
