I joined the type 34 registry years ago, like maybe around 1993 or there about. I found and purchased my type in 1978, prior to 99% of the VW dealerships knowing this model existed. I found one person in the Chico Dealership who took the time to examine old "Micro fishes" and located many NOS parts across the USA. I purchased a LOT of these NOS parts, including the LAST NOS PADDED DASH, which I had to drive from Lacy Washington to Chico to pick up because the dealership was afraid to ship it to me. I had my Type 34 looking really PRIMO by 1984. I quit working on it about that time, and drove it almost daily until 1987. From this date until now it hasn't been driven more than maybe 1500 miles. I am now interested in completing it's restoration, so am back into dressing her back up. I still have uninstalled NOS parts that I will be installing as soon as I get to them. I don't expect it to be 100% accurate ever, as I really can't afford that kind of completion, however, I expect it to be a good looker and a "Head turner". I believe there may be one other of these type 34's in the county I live in, as I've seen one on our highways on two different occasions, however, I am planning on driving it in our Local, annual "Kool April Nights" Cruise and Car show, here in Redding Calif. I would be interested in selling it, provided someone makes me an offer I can't pass up. And I don't believe this will happen as these cars CAN be purchased for much less than I would even consider.
