Sorry, no time to do an update. Look
for me at the Columbus, OH show on August 11, and the Great
Canadian Bug Show in Toronto on August 18.

New: I just started a new
page in the Modifications section, showing some possible "body kits"
and accessories, using parts from other cars.

I was hoping to do a big update all at once,
but once again Real Life has gotten in the way, and I don't know when I'll
have time to finish my redesign. I have uploaded the pages I have
re-worked for now, and will update the rest as time. The pages that
are updated are:
In other news, I am contemplating a TDI swap
into my Dasher. If anyone has info on a longitudinal TDI swap, please
talk to me!! Don't hold your breath, though, as my priority is my
Working on an update to the site, should be
up in a week or two. (This will include a slight redesign to make
the info available easier to get at).
detailed Fox 4-speed gear ratios,
I receive a lot of e-mail asking for info
and advice and other e-mails thanking me for the web site. Other
times I receive e-mails like this:

Hey I remember you. Waterfest
'00. You have that lame ass sedan that took fisrst place over me
and a late model Audi that was worth more than all the Foxes there.
I had the wagon on the left side with the GTi grille coversion, bi-colour
paint, !6 inch wheels, full Clarion system, Audi 5-speed conversion, all
the TT, and on and on. So tell me, was there cash in the ashtray
or do you just suck a good dick?"

New: Info on the VW
Voyage that's been on the front page here since April.
April 27, 2001
What is this thing called "free time" that
everyone else seems to have? :)
I really want to revive these pages, but don't
know when I'll be able to. I will put the Registry on hold (like
it hasn't been for the past 18 months), get the other content up to date,
and then possibly revive the Registry.
My current cars: 1992 Fox, 1988 Fox
wagon, 1980 Dasher wagon diesel. There's some info here.
April 23, 2001
More updates coming relatively soon.
And for everyone's amusement, here is an e-mail
I received a few days ago:
I have visited your site and was appalled
to see the lack of reserarch that went into it. I would like to inform
you the Golf (known as the Fox to you Yanks) was concieved by Giorgetto
Guiguaro in 1974. You can view details of this design and other projects
by Mr. Guiguaro at his company's site, italdesign.it. I hope you review
your site, and make the necessary adjustments. I will be monitoring the
internet, and your site in particular as it is misleading. I have also
notified the relevent authoities. You will be hearing from me.
The text is pretty good for an Internet heckler.
If I get a response to my reply, I will post it here.

My '92 Fox is back on the road after the winter.
The picture on the front page will be explained
March 28, 2001
I'm finally getting caught up with everything.
Website updates should resume by the end of April.
on grille/light swaps!
A few more weeks.
In quick news, I have noticed that just in
case my web site goes down, someone
out there was kind enough to post pictures from my site on theirs,
without even changing the filenames. End sarcasm.

Still no update. And I can't even forecast
when I will have time. I'm so busy that I've been driving without
an Oxygen Sensor for 2 weeks now... no time to replace it.
The only update is a correction on my links
page -- Volkswagen Canada does exist, and I got an e-mail from VWoA asking
to make that correction.
July 9, 2000
Update coming after I get back from Waterfest.
I thought I'd have time to plow through the backlog of updates, but they
won't come until early August.
Part of the reason is getting my car ready
for Waterfest. If you're attending,
please drop by and say "whatup?"; I'll be in the show car area.
Hopefully in the Dasher/Quantum/Fox/Pickup/MiscWatercooled area (or whatever
the class will be this year), but I won't put it past the parking crew
to be directed to the A1 Jetta area, like I was last year at first.
I have some interesting updates in the works
regarding usefull, cool and easy upgrades. So please check back in

Oy again, no updates in a long time.
I haven't forgotten about this web site, I've just been busy (and
lazy). Please be patient with me for a while longer.
I'll get the web site up-to-date somewhat soon.
Here's some info on a new
engine option in the current models of BX-platform cars in Brazil

I am caught up with e-mails to the end of
1999. If you sent me an e-mail in 1999 and haven't gotten a response,
please e-mail me again.
I am looking for information on the various

Finally open for business
I should be caught up with Registry updates
by the end of next week...
The pages would have been completed about
a week earlier, but a funny little computer game called Quake
3 Arena has been taking up my spare time...
After much too much
laziness, I have finally uploaded my pages to the new server.
Look for more regular
updates starting in a few weeks
to VW Fox Home Page
