"Pokal Jäger" - 2009
The last change came somewhere in the 2009 season. The exact timing is unknown, since we see the Taxi in the pictures of the VW Speed Midwintermeet but on our own event in the summer, we see the Pokal Jäger. The idea came from visiting German meetings and some guys called their car Pokal Jäger, which basically means Prize Hunter. Of course it was meant in a funny way and we spun the 'Jäger" part by adding a gigantic Jägermeister logo on the hood. The lighted taxi sign stayed on top as a reminder it was once the famous VW Team Club Taxi. This is the last design change and to date the car stayed the same. Unfortunately (December 2021) some dude smashed his beamer in the back of the car. It remains to be seen if it will be a write off or it will be fixable. Over the about 20 years this car has been with us, it has seen so much abuse. This is why we think the Volkswagen Golf MK2 is the best model VW ever put to the market. If it can survive all that and pass the yearly technical check (with flying colors) it would be a shame if it will be a write off after this year. Lets hope we can save it and maybe, at some point it will get a new shape again.
