I am new to the forum and had a quick question. What is a sensible highway speed for a 1600cc stock motor? I have not purchased a beetle yet, but I would like to know if folks drive their cars just for fun or do they make good commuters at interstate speeds. It has been 15 years or so since I last owned one and have wanted another the day my last one drove away. I don't remember ever exceeding 55 mph, but it seems that 70 + should be fine. My hope is to trade off my MG project and find a decent car that could be driven to work occasionally. Any thoughts and comments are appreciated.
