    While there are lots of classic cars out there in shows that ceased production decades ago, I have a hard time getting other enthusiasts to see where I'm coming from when I say I would NOT in most cases. Here I go: Except for the time I was a teenager 40 years ago and appreciated any car I...

    Is there some reason why these older cars seem 'better'? I drove a brand new Passat rental (2013 or 2014) recently while my alternator was being replaced (mine is a 2001 V6 MT GLX). It seemed like a Japanese car to me. Of course it was likely the base model, being a rental. My B5 Passat is...

    Is there any difference between front seats between Passat B5 pre 1999 vs post 2000. I know the difference in the heating/air bag switch between B5 and B5.5.
