Gelsenkirchen, about 50 Kilometers northeast of Düsseldorf, on a mild autumn day: you turn the corner and it is suddenly as if you are back in 1990. Golf II ‘Function’ and Golf II ‘Madison’ are parked neatly behind one another. The first is a five-door model, the second a three-door model – and in this particular car is the child seat, cuddly toys and very well-known frog figure, which appears to look out of the rear right side window as a sticker.
The Golf family
Few other cars are so deeply rooted in the lives of their drivers as the Golf. In the series entitled ‘It’s my Life’, we present people who drive the Golf – and live for it. In part two, Anna Webelsiep and Christoph Dalchau talk about how their Golf II ‘Madison’ has become part of the family.
