      Just turned 51. Bought my '93 VR6 Burgundy Pearl in '97 in Greensboro, NC. Moved back to Upstate NY in '01 so it gets stored when the salt hits the street. 133,000 miles. Had no problems until I hit 100,000 miles. Rebuilt the motor at 105,000. Running rough since it backfired X-mas eve. Otherwise I would be driving it right now. That's why I'm logged in. Searching for past threads with suggestion on the fix...I wish I had the chance to buy one off the showroom floor like some of you guys/girls. Too poor back then. I knew I had to have one when I saw a '93 Burgundy at a Watkins Glen sportscar race back in '95. Still puts a smile on my face when evn when it needs repair. Cheers everyone .

      I'll be 30 this year, I bought my first G60 when I was 17 years old (November of 2003), and I still have it. I have acquired three more, one of which was sold long ago. Don't plan on selling anymore of them.

      I am 26 from LA, Im on corrado number 2, First had a 92 SLC that was far from perfect, Last owner skimped heavy on the maintenance.

      Just recently bought a 90 G60 from a fellow corrado guy and saved it from being parted it out, It was far too nice.

      Got my first corrado back in 2012 I think, first VW when I was 20.
      Looking for Corrado parts... always need Corrado parts.....................

      I'm 31 and bought my Green 93 VR6 four years ago.

      Dad had a White 90 G60 for 10 years while I was growing up. He took me to Waterfest when I was 12 years old and brainwashed me into loving this car.

      Wow, a lot of us are old!! Haha, I'm 41, been away from this forum a while but recently traded my Volvo V70R to a guy named Daniel on here for his 1992 GTI 16V Turbo, that gave me the itch again so I'm buying Lee's/Chi's 1993 Corrado, after picking it up I'm gonna be taking it to 4 Seasons Tuning to have a Turbo kit installed and anything else fixed that needs fixing. I had owned a 1992 GTI 16v back in 1994, traded it for a '95 VR6 GTI (horrible decision), then my dream of Corrado ownership came true when I got my 1994 Dragon Green Corrado some of you may remember if you've been on here a while. Had a 1990 Corrado G60 project as well at the time. Sold the '94 to buy a Lotus Elise then sold the '90 to pay bills. Sold the Lotus because I got into motorcycles but the desire to own a '92 16V GTI and Corrado kept calling me. So anyway, I'm back and I'm old.
