I full well know what you're talking about! And once you have been bitten by the BUG there is no known cure;it's terminal! I just wish it wasn't so tough finding tires for the older bugs;and once you do find some-they are either cheap but no longer available;or available but they want $80+! I'm hoping I can reveal more info about the car & the P.O. soon;he is well known & respected on many VW sites & clubs & has an excellent reputation,including being known on this site.
I just booked the car transport company;wish me luck! Lol! I wish someone here on the Org lived close by to either pick up location to give me a little more peace of mind..
