      smog technicians are being rated through a star program and not doing an evap test on a 90 corrado has not affected my score. i just sold a corrado not too long ago and i smogged it without an evap test.
      I want the name of this smog shop also. Working in the auto industry for the past 15 years. I'm always looking out for a smog shop that is blind to the laws.

      Congrats Christine. I'm glad to see her back on the road. I'm glad that you were able to keep the plates, also.
      Eventually a Corrado GTG needs to be planned. July and August are mostly open for me at this time. Any Ideas? Anyone??

      but i found that it is only for 90 vw's. starting in 91 they required an evap and i think it is because in 91 they have california certified corrados. mine doesn't even have a CEL because of the certification. lol.

      Depends on the tech I'd reckon, both of my '90 g60's got evap tested.

      It's a good day today. Fixed the autoseatbelt on the driverside. Replaced the motor . now it's time to fix the sunroof. It tilts but doesn't slide - motor seems fine because it's engaging.

      hi there,

      Just wanted to chime in and invite all of you Corrado enthusiasts to Dubfest on 9/16/2012 at Irwindale Speedway this year. We'd love to fill our specific Corrado class, even create 2 (g60/vr6). With enough pre-registrations this can happen.. besides, we want to have the early generation in good representation and prsence.

      thank you for the read and hope to have you all this year for the show!

      regards,
      Tom

      it does...for the most part, if you can see the canister, it gets evap'd. i always check the evap locator that is provided for we, smog techs.

      if you know your vw's then you know which line to pinch but at the same time, not being able to see the canister means you don't know which line to pinch.

      there's also certain vehicles like jag's that have the non removable gas cap. those don't get evap'd or have to test the gas cap. soooo simple.

      Hi Tom
      I should be coming down again this year. The 'rado has some new goodies on it. I think you and Dave may be pleased. Maybe I'll be able to convince some other rado owners to come down. 2 classes would be nice. IIRC, there were about 8-9 rados down last year.

      2500 miles down. So far so good. I got up 5500 rpm, got out of it then looked at my speedo as it was dropping below 115mph. I am going to have to be good, unless I'm on a Banzai run.

      Well both your cars should be on house arrest. They're extremely lethal!
