I think this is one of the most popular golfs ever: the Series 1 Cabriolet, late 70s-early 80s.

There are still many of them here in Italy circulating

I think Cabrio versions were made from 1979.

I am almost 28.
In Romania you didn't see many foreign cars, other then Russian I guess. And the ones you see now, are not so old, maybe except some Merc Cobras, Trabant, Mini or VW Beetle.

I saw a lot of YUGOs in Serbia, old and really small cars .

VW Golf I was very popular here, in Hungary, too, lots of them came in the country in the 90's as second hand cares. However you can hardly see any now, perhaps in the countryside.
They were very good cars some 30 years ago.

And production of Golf 1 Cabrio continued long after Golf 2 (1983-1992) was introduced and all other versions of Golf 1 was stopped from production (1974-1983). Actually the Golf 1 Cabrio was introduced in 1980.

There was no Mk2-based Cabriolet model; instead, the Mk1 Cabriolet was continued over the Mk2's entire production run.

In Italy too, but I meant like this in the pic below. Maybe I wrong the word "sedan"... in Italy we call both "berlina"; for to distinguish we say "berlina 2 volumi" for the Golf and "berlina 3 volumi" for the Jetta

We might distinguish them into "hatchback" for a 2 v. car (also a "berlina compatta" in italian) and "sedan" for 3 v. cars, which usually -in C segment- are hatchbacks with a boot
But I'm not 100% sure if the term "hatchback" is correct to define a car without a boot (Golf, Giulietta, C30) or if it includes any car with 3/5 doors, where the third/fifth one is the baggage compartment door, including the rear glass and usually its wiper, thus excluding 2/4 doors cars.

Small sedans are pretty rare in Italy, in fact. In the Italian market carmakers don't import anymore any seg.B (Fiat Linea) or C (VW Jetta) sedans, as well as no one is selling any seg. D hatchback (I mean 5 doors Mondeo/Insignia), and I think it's a pity: those are the best way to still have the style of a sedan and the functionality of a well accessible boot.

But, let me say, the Italian car market does not follow a rational use of the car...

While I see many B or C sedans are sold in Eastern Europe (many Romanian Renault Symbol/Thalia) or Spain (Focus sedan), as well as seg.D 5 doors still have their market share in Northern Europe.

I'd be interested to know the situation of your countries, which kind of design is successful and which has disappeared

I Central and Eastern Europe many people need a car for the family, with a boot, but have no money for a large car. That's why sedan and even combi versions of small cars (that you call seg. B, Renault Thalia, Peugeot 206, etc.) are so popular here.

Besides people who own just one small car, there are also increasingly many households with a second car, which is often a small car too, so it's not very surprising small cars dominate the lists in Europe.

Is market of used cars big in Hungary? Do you bring them from Western Europe?

I'm asking, because in Poland we may bring from western countries even one million cars per year.

Sure but second cars are usually simple hatch backs.
