  1. Wheels for a 78 rabbit???

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I have a 78 rabbit that I just sand blasted and did body work to. I'm on the painting stage as of right now, I also extended the rear tire fenders by about an inch. Any suggestions for what rims I should put on that are 16X8 in the front and 16X10 in the back for a 4X100 bolt pattern? Thank you...

  20. Can anyone identify this Rabbit decal?

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I just got ahold of this nice little 1979 rabbit diesel. Has anyone ever seen this fender decal before? Is it original or something someone might have added? At closer look it seems like a hand painting or maybe stencil painting.
