I agree with you. Although, I feel the same way about salaries as well. However, I think the VW magazines do include purchase price, at least for the ones that were junk before being revitalized or for one-owners. My parents helped out my sister in the purchase of a horse with $500. To keep things "fair" (heck, I could've cared less) my parents wanted to help me with something as well for roughly an equal amount. Since I knew they couldn't really afford helping me with my computer obsession and my Dad kept looking for excuses to rid himself of the VW (which they bought brand new in '72) and my mom saw how I took such good care of it and I did need a car they decided to give me the Squareback (and I hope there are no English teachers out there cringing on this run-on sentence :) So, I guess you could say I paid $500 for my VW (HA! if that were only true) in 1985 and she was bone stock, in excellent condition, very well maintained, and literally full of a lifetime of memories. Oh, and lots of hay before my parents bought a truck (a Squareback can hold two bales of hay nicely).
