      I picked up an 88 wagon for about 200$ from a friend who ended up with a new truck. Long story short, I have been saving up for a new car and using the fox as my driver. The fox has been strong only needing a valve gasket cover and is burning oil over so slowly.

      My epiphany came when I realized, I don't need a new car...or a car payment.

      What I'm wanting to do is turn my fox into my car to love for a long long time.

      What are some easy power mods or upgrades? I dont have any mechanical skills but I do have a few older VW mechanics that take care of me for a very good price.

      Also would it be possible to install a rabbit grill with the round lights? Or something similar?

      Once maintenance and repairs are done, these cars make excellent, reliable drivers with a few upgrades.

      Even if you dump a few grand into making it reliable and fun, you still come out ahead if you use it every day and hang on to it for a few years.

      Post pics when you get a chance.

      Edit: Check out the FAQ section near the top of the Fox Forum's main page for info about upgrades, etc.
