After over two years and six grand, I've lost patience with the repair shop working on my '92 Corrado SLC. The guy bored out my engine to 3.0L, added new racing pistons and rods, put the engine back in the car, and then lost interest. Then he moved his shop and didn't tell me, leaving my baby out in the weather with the driver's window down. I've spent $2,400 adding stainless steel headers and 3" diameter stainless steel flow through exhaust system. Discovered a neat seven part series "Project Corrado" on It gave me a number of ideas. Here's my dream list...

Hello everyone, Due to a complete failure of the database server, we went down yesterday at about 4PM Pacific Time. With a bit of ingenuity and a bit of luck, I was able to recover all data and provisioned a new server overnight. Everything should be working normally now, with no posts or other data lost. Ironically, it happened while I was working on a better system to back up the database. Thank you for your patience. Skye Nott Webmaster


Hello everyone, Now that the database upgrade is nearing completion, and I finally have the ability to do "hot backups" without taking the website offline for maintenance, I'd like to give everyone a little bonus. Effective immediately, all Private Message (PM) storage limits are now doubled Free Members: 500 -> 1,000 Silver Members: 750 -> 1,500 Gold Members: 1,000 -> 2,000 Platinum Members: 1,500 -> 3,000 Hope this makes everyone's life a little easier, especially for you vendors out there that use PMs a lot! Thanks for your support, Skye Nott Webmaster


The new database servers are performing well under load, so I'll be continuing the database conversion process to the new layout for all websites, which will pave the way for better replication and backup systems. Please expect to see the "Scheduled maintenance" message on Friday night, February 17, 2017 starting at 9:00 PM Pacific time. I expect the work to take 4-6 hours as I want to take a full backup of the system for safety before making any changes. Once the websites are back up, there should be no visible difference in the operation or performance of the website. Schedule: Jan...


Hello everyone, You've probably noticed that this website has had some unplanned downtime lately. I'm not sure about the exact cause, it's probably an intermittent hardware failure as the techs keep finding the main server powered off at the console. I've been rebooting and repairing the database as needed to keep things running, while making plans to transition to brand new servers with updated database, webserver, and firewall software. The good news is I've already run the migration plan on some of my smaller websites, and it's working brilliantly. The bad news is that the frequenc...


Looking for a pair of repair sills for 92 corrado vr6 as anyone any ideas

It's a real blast cruising around town in a classic automobile, especially a Volkswagen, there's nothing quite like it, but to do so you must first find and obtain your classic automotive dream machine. As this website is all about Corrado's, let me share the story of how my Corrado came to be in my care. To start with, I wasn't actually looking to buy a new car at the time, it just so happened that I was facing a thousand dollars in repairs on my 1995 Pontiac Firebird V6 and was feeling very uncertain as to whether or not I really wanted to put that much money in to it at that point. I loved ...

I am a Volksaholic to the highest degree and though I am not a mechanic, I can honestly say that there isn't a make of vehicle that has ever been or ever will be on the road that I could appreciate more than a Volkswagen. All Volkswagen enthusiasts know that they are unique and of extraordinary design, though that isn't to say that there weren't vehicles produced that had some issues, but they are still something special none the less. One of the things I find of particular interest, is that at the end of the 70's when Volkswagen changed from being a rear to front engine offering, it was more ...
