I know one.

I only have Murray. I sold our beautiful Ghia to someone who adored her and 
only wanted the one car and was going to use it as a daily driver. I have my 
hands full keeping Murray on the road and I don't see why I would keep more. I 
need all you other guys to keep all those vehicles and boneyards because I will 
need the parts.

        Snobs in the VW community?  Never!  Now there are some real (*%^(&(*^ 
heads, but have never met a snob in the VW community.

          when i sold hershey a 54 chevy 2 door post brased my finger tips, 
solid body, near perfect floors COMPLETE with motor, tranny, everythign was 
there, just needed to be rebuilt. straight 6's are cheap enough to rebuild, i 
looked into it, talked to a friend of mine that builds early iron for a living, 
and almost bought it. but something about vw's had me going back. since owning 
the 77, then the 69, now the 58 and 66 parts bus, i've learned, there are alot 
of great friends i have that share the vw hobby, in the early iron hobby they 
are all snobs. granted there are some snobs in the vw community as well, but i 
just don't see myself ever getting out of vw's.
          i vote keep one of each, sell the rest, and enjoy them. oh and you 
were bitching about the t3, a friend says it best, the factory made them a 
certain way for a reason, when you go and change that, you create problems. ;)
