VW has finally announced that the beloved Citi Golf is to be discontinued.
This is possibly even more sad than the demise of the ubiquitous Nissan (Datsun) 1200 bakkie that bit the dust last year.
The practise of manufacturing "South Africa only" models was pioneered by Leyland back in the 1970s, and some classics like the Austin Apache and the Triumph Chicane emerged.
In the 1980s, many carmakers just didn't bother to update their old models to keep costs down, with the result that cars like the old '92 Corolla became the Tazz and the Mk1 Golf just stayed the same.
Sadly, competition from crap Chinese efforts like GWM and pathetic Indian tack like the TATA has rendered them obsolete.
No doubt the Citi, like the lekker Nissan Bakkie, will be a feature of South African roads for many years to come, if the Mk3 V6 Cortina bakkie is anything to go by....
