A friend commented yesterday about “Volkswagen” being literally (German) “People’s Car”.
Well, one of the “People’s Cars” has grown up, and in fact, turns 35 this year. You could call the Golf GTI the “Sporty People’s Car”, and you could say you think of it when you think about hatchbacks.
There’s a party this weekend at the Old Kallang Airport (Stadium Link) where there’ll be food and fun and even a beauty pageant (Miss Golf GTI – you can check out her hatchback or her boot). Free food vouchers for the first 10,000 registrants too, so you might want to hurry and register here.
There’s a map in case you’re driving and don’t want to end up at the National Stadium demolition site, and information about the programme as well. Better yet, there are shuttle services to and from the event from various locations around town.
I’ll be checking out the event at a preview this Friday evening, and I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out.
