      Well a few weeks ago figured out why car is running crappy. #1 cylinder is at 20 psi. So its not a car you can get in and go. It will need some motor work. With that said I would rather sell the complete car than part it out. I have done a lot to it over the last few years, but its time for it to go. I will NOT part it out at this time, but if there is no interest then I will list it in the parts section. I would like $1,500 for it.

      Auto raddo with aprox. 145,000 miles on it. I have no idea what has been done to the charger, it works and boosts fine. I was told belts were replaced when complete motor got all new seals and rebuild from 2 owners ago. It has dings and some surface rust, par for the course for a car that old, nothing larger than a quarter, no holes. Rear wing works fine. It has a home made intake an aftermarket cone filter. Still has AC, but does not get cold. It has a CD player. Sun roof works fine and does not leak. It has SLC hood. It has a black front bumper now, but I have the color matched one for it as well.

      Bad - besides that its an Auto (Everyone hates on it)
      No compression in #1 cylinder
      Rear shelf cut for 6x9 speakers.

      This is what I have done with it while i have had over the last two years:
      New Fuel Pressure Regulator
      Brand new Heater core, its dang hot and does a great job
      (2) Bosch front wipers and rear wiper, rear wiper arm cap
      H&R 60/40 suspension - used, but good condition
      both rear wheel bearings
      front strut bearings
      rear strut bushing kit
      both front tie rod ends
      New cross drilled, vented front rotors, powder coated, front brake pads
      turned rear rotors and new rear brake pads
      All Caliper sliders regressed and replaced with new rubber boots
      mk4 rear caliper conversion with new SS brake lines for conversion & banjo bolts (lighter, aluminum instead of cast iron, and better rear disk brakes)
      Brake fluid flush and all new fluid

      new brakes lines from MC to both rear brakes

      passenger window switch and hand full of other interior pieces.
      New defrost switch
      custom car mats from Volkssport for the Corrado
      New dust shields front and back
      Alignment and balance after suspension work
      All suspension parts painted to help keep away the rust
      new rear side shelf speakers

      I just had the timing, serp and PS belt replaced. 1 month ago

      I put brand new winter tires on the stock BBS rims that have under 2,000 miles on them. I made some BBS 5x100 center caps fit but they are not perfect. I also have another set of rims that are on the Raddo now. I can be flexible on what rims and tires go with the car.
