Re: WHY IS IT CALLED A CADDY??? (SilberGTi)

Think golfing. When you golf, you have a Caddy. The Caddy hauls your stuff around. Trucks haul stuff...and it is a VW Golf "over there". It's the Golf that hauls stuff. Wollah!

Just leave it to the wonderful marketing VWoA folks that just had to rename the Golf a Rabbit here in America.

<Also responsible for naming the German Passat a freak'n Dasher.>

Also, the Scirocco was not the first watercooled VW in America. The 1974 Dasher was.

True that. I still regret passing up a mint '75 Rocco years ago. Bright orange with orange plaid interior. Oh well...I got a '75 Rabbit instead. Already did the '74 Dasher thing too.

i'm still waiting on the right rocco1 to come along. had a few rocco2's.

Re: WHY IS IT CALLED A CADDY??? (LubsDaDubs)

My theory is that VWoA wanted a youthful, sporty image, and let's face it, no one realizes "Golf" is the name of a wind rather than a game played by (70's mind you) old men in plaid pants.
Plus, I realized something sitting in a Chinese restaurant one day, looking at the Chinese Zodiac Calender....
1975 is the YEAR OF THE RABBIT!!!!!!! (I am too, which is how I figured it out)

Re: WHY IS IT CALLED A CADDY??? (SilberGTi)

now it all make sence....
I dont know about the s-rocket growing on my.

I owned a 92 Corrado SLC which I know is the grandchild of the s-rocket. But even though it was sexy and only had 56k miles on it, was far to nose heavy and heavy overall. 3,500 lbs in a car that small is rediculus, my bunny weighs 1810 without me in it.
I like the caddy thing now that I know what you are all talking about...heh...

Were you hauling cement blocks in the trunk? Corrado SLC curb weight is only around 2800 lbs
