VW started the hot hatch game back in the 70's with the original GTi, but the original Golf was the first big home run for the German automaker. Now on it's sixth iteration, the Golf platform doesn't seem to be going anywhere for a while. I have a particular affinity to the Golf/GTI, it was my first car after all and one that still runs to this day. Rick, I know you would at least agree with me on this one!
