Now all you need to do is strip the motor out on it and VR it. ;-)

That would be really sweet. I think I'm going to be leaving it original g60 though. Through in a new supercharger and some other stuff and it will be one mean Rado. Right now I'm trying to find an original Rieger Corrado GTO widebody kit.

Whaaaa? Don't like the widebody? I don't really feel strongly about the front bumper but I like the rest.

Dont bother with spencer's opinion, to each their own, not my ball of wax either, but cool none the less. At least you work on your corrado! Keep it up, be leery of those chargers, they need to be healthy!

BBM apparently rebuilt the engine and supercharger 25k miles ago. Don't know the extent of the rebuild but I have some receipts for an engine etc. which was included with purchase.
I think I'm going to go suspension. Bag it and replace all bushings, tie rods, ball joints, control arms, rack and pinion, and anything else that needs an ass kicking while I'm in there.
Suggestions are welcomed...

its gone already! thats sweet bbm rebuilt it! just a rebuild or did they spruce up the g charger? not many g60's on the road anymore, very cult status engine, i ran one in europe but with a mercedes roots blower on it. killer reliability. and 250 hp. the charger could outflow the cylinder head by a long shot. strong motors for sure, and a healthy G charger makes an intoxicating sound, i would run a boost guage if it doesnt have one, the last G60 i seen made 1 psi of boost haha. i would start with the suspension, make sure its all tight and good to go. watching!
