Celebrate Wookie Day with these Fine Wookies Share Comments As you may or not be aware today is the fourth day of May, a date which bears a phonetic resemblance to something once uttered, a long time ago, by the Jedi. To celebrate that pun, because we too rarely do celebrate puns, VW Vortex has assembled a collection of fine videos that feature the Volkswagen Golf R32, or Wookie. Please enjoy and may the force be with you. Why’s it called a Wookie, you ask? And what does Tiff Needell have to say? And what if you want a bit more power? But how does it handle some snow?
