Like most of us....I've got waaaay too much $ wrapped up in this thing to even come close to breaking even if I sold it. So.....for now I'm stuck with the beeeauch.....but don't I love it.
1992 SLC (234K on body) 44K miles on full mechanical restoration 2.9 etc. I drive it 3K per year.. I'd never sell it for 2700 - 5300 like what I am seeing. In 2007 I could have gotten 12K.. Its not my daily obviously anyone else in the same boat ?.
Hmm.....let me think.....This is Every Corrado owners dilemma.
I bought a Corrado for $4,000 USD. Have put $18K into it over the last 6 Years. Hmm......Selling it is not an option.
For any fool looking at a Corrado as an investment, Do not put any money into a Corrado unless you want to loose money building them for others to buy off you later, or any older VW for that matter. Insurance will not pay you what you have into it if it gets wrecked and totaled. Be prepared for Heart Ache with this car....but the joy of ripping 3rd gear down a Highway or a closed road when the car is running great.......Priceless.

Well both of mine are sitting bone stock with a huge parts collection for the SLC. The G60 needs to be sold but I won't get a a quarter of what I have in it. I think its worth more than average being 100% stock besides the exhaust and its never been wrecked. I had it repainted because the paint was completely faded on the nonmetal parts. I would probably get offered $2k for it and I'd laugh in their face. I'll just have them attach handles to the sides and get buried in it when I kick the bucket.

I owned my g60 for 12 years and it sat for the last 5-6 of ownership. I told my self I would never ever sell it. But then I had this light bulb go off in my head I started thinking if I sold it and all the parts I had for it and put that towards all the money I have been also saving for the project that I could find a even better one with a vr6 instead
So I did it and I don't regret it at all now I can never replace all of the old memories from the g60 that we shared but Its a new beginning for the vr6 and I and along with that comes many more new memories
I never think of selling...I dont wish this s*it on anyone... corrados build character..if you cant hang...sell your stuff to me... I havent had one long enough to complain really....but my life is kinda like a corrado, never right but just enough to keep you going..

The interior is just ugly eurospec cloth seats and the drivers seat is pretty worn. If you actually wont pics i will grab some cell phone pics.
I'd never sell my car simply because it wouldn't help me out finically so what's the point, I live in the land of $500,000-1,000,000 homes what's $5,000 dollars gonna do? buy me a door and a some carpet lol. Basically i'm saying it would need to be enough money to make a difference or what's the point.
