Welp...looks like I jumped the gun and replied without seeing all the other helpful hints in-between the beginning of my post and the last one(to Garrette).
Anyway, THANKS to you all and have seen some introspective stuff such as...
"Check the tow bar\baseplate manu's first". This makes a lot of sense...if they don't bother to produce equip't for the VW, then guess what, right?
"Beware of Turbo's". That re-inforced what I've been reading re turbo's too and it doesn't sound too hopeful here ...have been eyeing a loaded, clean, lo mileage 2014 Super Bug RL turbo convertible but that has been invalidated now...darn,.,.,.,.,.,
"Check the Fiat's and they are fun to drive"...I've heard that too and have seen
many a Fiat toad(all set-up) within past dingy forums as posted by their proud
owners. THAT might be doable then...
Also, some of you have mentioned the venerable Jeep as a good choice and also saw the Ford Focus. Hmmmmmm... All good stuff. Plan to hit those manuals first too in case I get any other wild idea's but honestly I think you all set me straight!
I send a gracious THANK YOU to all of you and a BIG >>
