Here's my Fox:
All I've done to it so far is put in a 10-year old clarion radio since it came with no radio, some Passat 14's with caps, and an mk2 GTI wheel.

This is my VW Fox. I bought it 5 years ago for 400 bucks. It has over 300k miles and counting. Really hard car and engine. The biggest thing that had to be changed was the clutch, when the old clutch was out I found out that it was the one that the car had from the factory 19 years ago. I just moved, so I haven't been able to keep modding the car, but the car is still a work in progress. I'll try to keep the page up to date with the mods of the car.
This is how it looked when I bought it:
After some mods:
Here it has smoked tail lights and same color mirors and bumpers :
Smoked front with blue "FOX" badge on the grill:
Smoked tails with blue stripe on the bumper:
'94 Ford Escort rims:
Blue trim on the interior with no stereo:
As it looks now (still in progress):
VW mk3 front lip, VW mk3 lowering suspension, Hyundai Scoupe side skirt, VW Corrado G60 rear disc brakes, 40% window tint, black hood, and Michelin 185/60/14 tires:
Black hood, smoked lights, eyelids and European plate:
Rear smoked lights, exhaust, although here it doesn't have it, now has rear window tint:
Exterior blue matched trim, Cabriolet Cluster with Tachometer that works, head unit, Clarion 6 1/2 door panel mounted speakers, and pre-amp:
I paid 20 bucks for the used head unit almost 2 years ago and still works like new:
When I take new pics I'll post them.
I already bought a BMW E30 rear spoiler, I'll put pics of it when mounted.
The drop that I want:
Some fun in paint (I ain't good):
Any suggestions or comments for future mods will be appreciated. fox_pr

OK well here are some pics.. ill get more as i do stuff to the car.. right now im getting to know her... btw her name is vivian (came with the car from at least 2 previous owners)
low miles in my opinion for a car built in 1989 im guessing.. it still has a 0 in the last part of the vin..
Why yes virginia, that is a WORKING FACTORY TAPE DECK at the bottom of the pic
and the inside is pretty much the way it rolled of the assy line... lol not perfect.. but in decent shape...
she is not the prettest Fox on the road.. but she is definitly a good starting point... im amazed at how straight the body is..
I would like to find out the story of this Fox
