      i found a set of bbs wheels i like http://providence.craigslist.org/pts/2517518837.html

      the lug pattern is 4x100... can they bolt onto a 72 super? or do i need a conversion kit? (i'm going to try and stick with drum breaks until i can afford disc)

      Is this a real question?

      Your bolt pattern is 4x130, need adapters or conversion to run em.
      And IMO, thats too much for those 14" BBSs.

      i never thought i would see the day. i'm probably going to have to daily my bug ( if it ever gets running). i had a yukon my mom got for towing our camper around, otherwise it sits. so i was going to start driving it.... suddenly, NOPE. you need to get a cheap 4cylinder car. seeing every penny i get goes into the bug, i cant see myself buying a wc any time soon.

      i REALLY wish super beetles could be baja'd. I would have no problem with dailying it.

      Can be baja'd just as street bajas. They used to make super beetle baja kits lol
      I hate super bajas, but as a street baja daily, it'd be ok
