12 April 2006CNN.com - VW to start using Rabbit name for compact once again - Apr 12, 2006:
"The Volkswagen Golf is going back to its Rabbit roots.
The company announced at the New York Auto Show Wednesday that it will start using the Rabbit name on the car that it has been selling as the Golf since 1984, when the company dropped the Rabbit name in favor a global name plate. The vehicle will still be sold as the Golf outside of North America."
alice, my little '84 vdub rabbit (in white, natch), will be so excited. she's OG now.
here she is last summer, happy to be alive after the crap she went through before she got to me, three weeks in the shop and threats from cranky old italians that said they were going to fill her with cement and drop her in the lake. eek!
