      If that were true, Id be featured by now.

      Shame the Fender flares just don't quite make it all the way to the skirt.

      I don't think the autobiographies are to showcase the best of the best for there are already the showgrounds and mags for that. Rather, I believe their purpose is to exemplify the spirit of the vw enthusiast and the love of tuning, modifying and driving our cars. I don't particularly care for them all myself, either, but that's what makes all of this great: that we're all doing things differently.

      Congrats, is in order. Obviously it's something different and not for everyone, of course that is exactly how the cars was built. For the Owners own preference. It still is a relatively clean corrado.

      Not a perfect car, but as said it's to showcase the VW enthusist car.

      The only thing that gets me, as some mods are not to my taste.

      Was the Core support a replacement to a fubr'd one that was after some paint or just never got painted? Needs paint.
      And the Blue samco hoses. Were they bought blue on purpose, or was a good $$ deal had on them?
      Not too keen on the Camo paint, but that goes for any car.
      I understand the flares to squeeze the 9.5" wide rims under. And it looks like you worked on those quite a bit.

      In all though nice job, it is still a clean Rado at least cleaner than most. i.e. you won't see my 1991 Tornado pink Corrado on here.
      We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

      I don't get why they'd feature a car that has a new owner?

      Too many of you brainwashed to thinking everyone's car should be a PVW entry!

      omg. those offsets make baby jesus cry.

      I'm actually the one who purchased the car back in July, although everyone seems to be hating on it, I agree with the minority of the people on here that it's about individual taste and obviously this car's mods are not for everybody. Car is now in Massachusetts and I am unfortunately forced to sell due to the difficulty in making it US road legal (is a CAN car). Figured I'd throw it out there to see if anyone was interested, will be probably making a FS thread relatively soon but the original one should pretty much suffice until then. PM with any offers, questions etc.

      This feature tainted the feelings I had about mine being featured shortly before it.

      GL with the sale. Gonna take one special person with bad taste and willing to deal with legalizing it to buy this one!
