I did as Roger wrote, glued the vent windows shut on my '81 Rabbit 
Truck.  Did this a number of years ago and it is still holding strong.  
Used a clear windshield sealer from local Pep Boys store.  In over 
twenty years driving that truck I have never needed to open the vent 
windows anyway.

By the way, in the last few days I have seen VW Rabbit trucks on EBay 
with bids topping over $6000.  Are they really appreciating that much?
