A recent post on the "Bring a Trailer" website for a 1980 Ford Fiesta garnered 154 comments. (Typical postings get 20-30.) I had a '79 model, and it was a hoot to drive. A big part of the fun was the fact that it weighed less that 2000 lbs. The current Fiesta weighs between 2575 and 2750, depending on configuration. I'm sure this Golf weighs more than a '78 model, but to actually have reduced the weight over the prior model is a wonderful reversal of the trend. Necessary, since they want to improve fuel economy, but it should serve to make the car more enjoyable to drive as well.
