Corrado 1.8 G60

Manufacture Date: 1990
Owner: nugget_90g60 from U.S.A., Pennsylvania
Colorcode: LK1B (Nugget yellow was delivered from 1988 till 1991)
Bought on date: Aug. 10, 1992




Information / Adjustments :
My car (#15151 built in Jan. 1990) is mostly all original; I've been the 2nd owner since Aug of 1992; (yes, I'm probably the oldest guy on here!). Anyways, the car appears stock, but has pretty much everything done to it that I could possibly do to a g60 (US car) without swapping the motor or breaking the bottom end open. It has a bored out and polished internally Bahn Brenner S.C. with all the works, such as aluminum fuel rail etc. I still have the original Neuspeed H.P. kit from 1992 on the car with the Gillet mid-muffler; the rear muffler is the original 1990 VW unit w/ the factory S.S. tip polished. The wheels, you ask? They are vintage 16" OZ/MSW Saturns restored in a gun metal color w/ Yokahama tires. Even though It turned over to 100k miles recently, the car still looks new and people always ask what it is etc when I'm pumping gas; I like that. -Thanks for looking... I'll take some more pics soon.
