Does anyone know whether you can tow a 73 VW SuperBeetle (manual trans) in neutral without damaging anything?  We are changing dinghys due to weight and other issues.

Hi,
Manual Trans VW Bugs are one of the easiest Vehicles to  tow.
Bugs & Dune Buggies can & are towed in Neutral all the time. Most are towed without any added breaking system because they are so light.
Plus you can tow with a VW Super Beetle tow bar that cost around $80 plus shipping if bought online.
It is also recommended that you add safety chains to the VW tow bar.
Here is one place online to get the tow bar.  http://www.jbugs.com
This link will take you to the TOW BAR, FOR SUPER BEETLES, 2 INCH BALL they also have  it for a 1 7/8 ball.

I am restoring a 1973 VW Thing & plan to use it as our Toad.
