The late bus ignition you refer to is my favorite system. I believe this only came stock in California. Luckily I live there and raid Wrecking yards for them. All of them are over 20 years old and they usually work perfectly.
From what I can tell, it was a California thing for the aircooleds, but 50-state for the WBX Vanagons. But watch out with the WBX's; the post-'85 models with Digi*fant* (instead of Digi*jet*) injection don't have an advance mechanism in the distributor.
How many people do you know who have run an aftermarket electronic igition for 20+ years? Another bonus is that many spare parts can be found on jettas, golfs ect.
Another bonus is that if something *does* crap out, it's probably easier to get a Jetta/Rabbit/whatever part in Bumfark Nowhere than an aftermarket system. =)
