As a Passat guy, I've always thought it would be really cool to have an old model such as a Dasher, Quantum, or even B3 or B4 to put in VW shows. Once in a while, I'll find some of the above on either The Samba, Craigslist, or even sites like Autotrader.com. However, there are two big issues that concern me and make me apprehensive to buy one: A) There are very few of these cars around, and most are hundreds of miles away. It would really suck to buy a one-way airline ticket only to find the potential purchase is a piece of junk, and B) far more bothersome to me, while you can get just about any needed parts you desire for an old air-cooled Bug, Bus, Ghia, etc, I question whether parts for Passats anywhere from 25-40 years old would even be available. As an example, I recently learned you can no longer get an instrument cluster for a much younger 2000 New Beetle! B5s, B6's, and B7s are obviously plentiful, but sadly not old enough for most to care about in a VW show, so does anyone know how easy (or hard) it would be to find parts for the earlier models? I want to be different, you know? Imagine seeing a mint 1977 Dasher or 1982 Quantum or 1991 Passat as opposed to your usual sea of air-cooleds or modified GTIs/Golf Rs, etc..... but would it be too hard?
