I have a 79 Audi Fox wagon that I am currently dismantling.  There is a lot
of Rabbit stuff mixed in there.  It seems like a simple car to maintain.
One word of caution is to check for RUST.  My Audi Wagon ran perfectly
except for the rear passanger wheel.  The trailing arm rusted completely
off the body and the only thing that held it on was the anti-sway bar.  Too
dad, because it does look like a nice car!
