Re: Rallye Golf?

<< As near as I recall the Rallye Golf came out in 1988.......I may be one
 year off but I don't think so.  I am referring to when they were going to
 be brought to the U.S., which as it turned out, they didn't except for
 maybe 3 or 4 to be used for Pro Rally........they may not have brought even
 that many in.  At that time I was working for a VW dealer in Arizona and
 talked with the factory reps many times about when the Rallye would be in
 this country for sale.  They were always very evasive, and finally they
 decided to not bring them in............but to answer your question, the
 factory Golf Rallye was definitely a Golf body and not a Rabbit

I believe 2 of the Rallye Golfs were imported for raced purposes only.  Have
a great picture on one, riddled with VW motorsports stickers, power sliding.
 They had box flared fenders and looked slightly like a sport Quattro (S1).
 Extremely quick cars.    Interesting GTI fact....In europe, there are old
(83-84) Diesel GTI's.  Figure that one out.  
Any sightings of one of these, Phil?
