may I be the first to say that I kinda like the hood? I guess the Spider Man association gets annoying, but it's pretty cool looking
Here's a few pics of my 1990 Fox. The hood came that way I guess there was a story behind it from the previous owners daughter but he wouldn't tell me what it was lol. Probably gonna spray over it this summer. For now everyone still calls me Spiderman haha.
Fox Wagon 1988 at Parati Clube's meeting last Sunday:
It's running carburetor.
The owner bought it about 12 years ago, but he told me that the previous owner did the conversion in the early 90's, because at that time we had here like two or three models with electronic injection, none with Digifant or KE Jetronic (Gol GTi had LE Jetronic), so it was hard for the first owner to do maintenance here in third world. The carb is probably the Weber TLDZ.

I think it looks pretty good...but it would look better about an inch lower (if you have photochopping skills, feel free!, I'd love to see what Im aiming for)
wheels are old Vial (not Rial) 15x5.5 et37 with 195/50-15s all around. hubcentric oldschool VW wheels. they have quite a few minor dents and whatnot, but they hold air and only cost $100 so I'm not complaining.
In related news, Im in the market for a set of scirocco caliper carriers if anyone knows of a good source. I'll miss my 13s but the better grip has my brakes feeling a little inadequate on spirited drives, now that I can fit 10.1s I think it is pretty high on the list.
I also just ordered blackforestindustries.com's rear stabilizer. That should be here Thursday, just in time for the weekend.

Hey it's a pretty rough photoshop edit but here's what it would roughly look like lowered a little bit.
Good lookin car, I like those wheels.
I love Coco floor mats. These came from my Ford Focus; I swiped them before I sold it. Not a perfect fit for a Fox, but not bad at all. You should be able order exact fit mats for a Fox as they make them to fit just about any vehicle.

Just another day...
PO gave me a roof rack that he forgot about. It's kinda cool, a yakima, but really the rear is all I need as far as hauling stuff goes, so I might take it off for now. It'd be nice for trips though.
And for good measure, heres a picture of my dad's '67 chevelle ss. I know Alain wanted to see it!
Thanks Alain! The chevelle came out out pretty damn good IMO, and yup, you guessed it, black vinyl top, just like it was when my Dad first bought it back when he was my age.
It was originally teal with a gold/brown interior. We've been slowly transforming the interior black. He refurbished the original seats with new springs, cushions, and leather recently. He says it used to do high 11's with the 396, so maybe he'll break into the 10's with the new 402. We wont find out til next summer though. Still a lot to get done mechanically.
