Any body know of a rack that will fit on a '73 Beetle? I have had no luck finding one. Thanks

Both Yakima and Thule have towers that will fit onto your rain gutters and clear the roofline. Call around the dealers and I'm sure you'll find them.


Serotta, Campagnolo and Volkswagen, why doesn't my wife understand that that is why God gave us money.
Try ebay for Thule or Yakima gutter feetAlpedhuez55

Check ebay or even better, a local classifieds paper. There are always a few people selling their gutter feet or roof rack sets. They only fit older cars and as people buy newer racks. When they buy a new car the gutter feet will not work with them. I bougth a set of Thule Rain Gutter feet for my Geo Prizm for $20. That is a great deal considering they sell for $100 retail.

Good Luck,

I see a rack advertised in Bicycling mag all the time. I can't remember the name of the rack, but they always show it on a beetle. It's like a roof rack that fits on the back. Looks pretty cool. If I had a bug, that's defiately what I'd get. It's like the security of a roof rack, with the low height of a trunk rack. Look through the ad section of B-mag at your local Library. If I see the ad again, I'll respond to this post again. (I'm at work so I don't have access to my stack-o-magazines)
