interesting your comments Tim, regarding going from air cooled to something like your good ladies truck, but me i'm going the other way from my 52' chevy truck to a humble Beetle, i sold the truck in the summer and business is tough (sign maker) so although i really want a 'A' coupe it aint gonna happen, so i have just bought my sons 'sorn' for two years Beetle, its gonna get a subtle 2'' chop, stock wings, steels (stud pattern is 5 stud jag/chevy), stripped out interior, everything painted satin grey inside and out, oh and a quick motor, this will do me on a budget untill work picks up.............

yeah there Cragars, Kanes whole plan with this car is that it had have cragar five spokers, offsets being a nightmare hence the oversize wings, i think this is the only fully fendered bug i've seen with the cragars, Gonzo had them but that was fenderless as you know, as for Astro Supremes my favourite wheel..
