  • Need an Antenna

    I am in the process of rebuilding an old VW Bug and I need an antenna for the car. VW had a big ugly side mounted stock FM antenna for the car but as you can tell I don't like it (I took it off and filled the holes). I need an antenna (eventually to go the nice piece of hardware Rando and friends are making) for an FM stereo. My question is does anyone know of a small reasonable looking antenna that works well. I don't know too much about how to pick one. I've seen ones as small as a couple inches to a couple feet but I would assume there is a reason most cars have larger ones. I also know that some cars have antennas built into (around) the windows or other hidden installs. This would also be acceptable if someone could point me to some info on it. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have this antenna on my '03 jetta and looks much better than the 10 foot stock antenna...and I haven't had a problem with radio reception or anything. Here's how mine looks:

    I can't wait to see the bug when it's finished...
