Default 81 Accord Help Please!?

I bought a 1981 Accord LX hatchback with 62000 original miles for $500 from the original owner a couple moths ago. It is my first car. It runs great as is and looks great with a fresh coat of wax. That being said, I would like to upgrade it somehow. Ive searched the web for other projects along these lines and have found close to nothing other than restoration projects( Upholstery, exterior, rust ect.) My car has very little problems in these areas. Questions of engines swaps seem to be excessive. It has an 1.8 liter anyway which isnt too bad for 1st generation. My question is; What can a novice mechanic do with reasonable funds to make this car stand out a bit more?? Other than it being 30 years old haha P.S Im thinking exhaust system maybe?

You have a gem there! I think you should keep it as stock as possible.

Because it is a 1981 with 62k miles, it should already stand out enough! (In a good way!)
