My first VW
When it comes to driving I was definitely a late starter, whilst all my friends were driving around I was still relying on them for lifts or the good old public transport to get me around. Driving was one of those things that never really interested me. But, after I got my first job learning to drive became a priority – public transport was just too unreliable.
I passed my driving test on my 3rd attempt at the ripe old age of 25! My first car was a VW Polo that my dad sourced out for me from a used VW dealer. It was my first love, a light blue 1995 Polo Match with a dent in the boot. It was a good car to me, never let me down, never needed big repairs and gave me the freedom I never knew I was missing out on!

Classic Cars – Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
The Karmann Ghia was essentially a VW Beetle with a different body shell attached, yet it is considered an elegant sports car. So what constitutes a sports car? For the Karmann Ghia it was all about styling.

This was achieved because VW chose to stick to its reliable Beetle chassis, yet covered that Chassis

Volkswagen Scirocco The Energetic Form Of Golf
Golf coupes were by no means a new idea when this Volkswagen Scirocco was launched in 2008. The first car to carry the Scirocco name (derived from Sirocco, the Italian for wind, if you\’re interested) was launched in 1974 and based around mk1 Golf mechanicals. It was superseded in 1982 by a heavily revamped Scirocco mk2 which shared the same platform. The Scirocco didn\’t disappear from the Volkswagen range until 1988 when the Corrado arrived on the mk2 Golf platform to replace it but when production of that car ceased in 1996, so did the burgeoning dynasty of cars combining Golf basics with coupe bodywork.
Though the Golf GTI models were on hand to satisfy Volkswagen customers looking for something sporty, they have never been cars with the power to transform pedestrians into gawping fools with a simple drive past. Volkswagen went without
