1990 Volkswagen Corrado G60

You might not like this Corrado when it’s angry. In fact, you may not like it ever. With a face only its builder could love, this G60 has had enough modifications under the hood that the new front-mounted intercooler got pushed outside, like a child reluctantly spitting out chewed metal. I think the seller probably envisions the FMIC as an ersatz lower grille, but it mostly looks like a fragile and expensive snow plow. God help the buyer if they ever see a speed bump – say bye-bye to all that expensive plumbing.

This little Hulkorrado actually has received some good attention to make this a strong runner. Yet while the seller has updated and redone a lot of parts, I’d be wary of all the relocating causing headaches down the line. That’s if you don’t have a headache already from the proboscis, super-Green pearl, O’Reilly tail lights (both fake AND real!) or hood louvers. However, if you are blind or really good at dissociating form and function, it’s actually a decent G60 deal.

Maybe I’m just ignorant and this is actually the preferred style of Idaho tuners. It wouldn’t be the first time my neighboring state harbored an offensive community… Anyway, I think my point has been made regarding the confounding intercooler and aesthetic choices. At $5k, a low-mileage and mechanically reinforced G60 with a good interior is a good value. Perhaps it could be rearranged and the cooling wall relocated back under the hood. Maybe it’s primed to be a fun VW track car. No matter its future use, it will probably take a while to find a seller willing to take in this ugly duckling.

  1. It’s not April fools is it??

  2. For $5000, I’d drive it. At the very least it upsets the Corrado purists. Plus, you can make some extra money in the winter with the included snow plow.

  3. With that intercooler, it may not be the best car for someone who has to park on the streets of San Francisco

    LOL.
    Long live the funky. Long live the diy. Long live the homemade fire box. Good luck, Idaho jalapeño.
