      That's great. My daughter (2.5 years old) already likes to sit in the MG of the Fox and mess around with the steering wheel and shifter. We JUST found out today that our second child is a boy, and hope to do the same with him too.
      (sheriff)Early, I though you said this was a drug possum.
      (Early) Sure, I drug him from the ditch.
      (sheriff) I wish you told me that before you sold him to me.

      I'll try to get some pictures of the Fox in the snow to complement SourKandi b/c of the same storm.

      We got almost a whole inch overnight! Unfortunately, I didn't get better pics today bc we drove around in the snow instead!

      That being said, I really need to figure out the hot start issue. She loves the cold. Starts like amazing when she's cold. Good time to drive her as long as she can sit and cool down enough. Aren't old cars supposed to act up in the cold? Silly fox. I luv it.

      We got only a few inches, but it's below freezing now.

      I don't have any snowy pictures to share, but with the uncharacteristically cold start to this winter I did finally put the snow tires on. I also gave up on keeping the back seat since it was holding water in the car from a leak I can't seem to fix.
      I'm finally going back to the Fox for driving to school, since it was sitting a while after the alternator bracket broke. But a better one is on now and that is also fixed, thanks to this awesome community.

      Hey RattyFox, you might want to check the rear driverside suspension tower, well known place for rusting out and leaking into the backseat well... For myself, I spent ten minutes sanding on the Fox but I might hold off till warmer weather brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

      I'll check that out! I'm stuck thinking it's the passenger side vent window, and no matter what I "fix" on the window water still gets in - thanks for the tip!

      Still looking forward to seeing the progress on the build though

      EDIT: finally took the Fox out to have a nice little drive. In 8" of snow, the trip was nothing but fun. I forget how well this car handles itself in the snow.

      Finally got to the junkyard today and put another one on. The rubber cap on the weep hole apparently shot off mine after a trip through the mountains and started leaking through there. Pulled the other one off a 1990 wagon and set the adjuster to the default one on mine. Have to go back tomorrow for the driver side headlight bracket.
