I actually enjoy the classified section on vwtype3.org -- seems like a
different group of people selling than The Samba/ebay. I've had several
great experiences and good pricing.

I'd vote that you keep it, especially since vwtype3.org is Type 3 centric.
The Samba and especially ebay are rather extensive, with anything and
everything VW related.

I think you could add this section in addition to the classifieds. Rather
than a listing, it would be useful to allow user experiences with vendors as
well. I'm not sure how it would work, but some sort of review perhaps,
similar to the way ebay allows users to offer feedback about their
experience with a vendor. It would be more useful if there was some sort of
mandatory information, not allowing someone to submit "They suck!".

I hope you reconsider this idea...

I'd be willing to work on this. It wouldn't take too much time.
