Re: Did Crazy-Legs Corrado get stolen? (Corrado4Life)
Ya my car was stolen a couple weeks ago but was recently recovered.
I went with Snipun today and we picked it up and it was a mess. The door is messed up a bit on the inside, as well as ALL the stereo gone. The alarm has been all hacked up, and the motor has been punished as well as the brakes, but hey that is how it goes.
I guess they wanted it more then I did, and found a way into the car eventhough I had shaved handles.
Re: Did Crazy-Legs Corrado get stolen? (crazy-legs)
Sounds like someone with a tow truck jacked the car. No one questions them when they are near a car. I have a folding slim jim, I use it when I go to the scrappers. It really is easy and in under 1 min. your in a dub. I didn't shave my doors, I just added rear door handle covers to the fronts. I do worry about theft, and will do something about the internal rods, to prevent a slim jim from gripping it.
What are you plans for the Rado now?

Dang Crazy-Legs, sorry to hear of your car being stolen! Maybe I should keep mine dirty this winter to make it look undesirable! Hope you can put it all back together soon!
Good luck to you,
PS "Street School" at Thunder Hill was a blast, hope you can catch the next one.

They shoved a huge breaker bar between the body and the top corner of the door and just pried it open.
It just goes to show that people can get ANYTHING they want if they really want it.
Thanks for the kind words Kevin....atleast the 5 series lights were not installed.
I have a close friend that is going to respray the car for me, and I am going to put in a new motor and hopefully it will be alright when all is said and done.
I am just gonna have to save for a new stereo and all becuase the damage was not really enough to report to the insurance, so this one stays off my record.

Hey that would be a fun day, I have tons of stories on my door handles and all. I finally got a hold on how they work and all, and needless to say I am the worlds fastest Corrado door panel puller!
I wish I could have bought Nicks Jetta Coupe. That car is so freaking clean and beautiful. I was in the process of getting a cashiers check ready for it when my car was found.
It may sound kinda funny but I was stoaked about a change in cars.
Actually Todd, the motor is still at Matrix Motorsports just waiting for the head to be completed....Thank heavens.
I also had a set of 5 series BMW headlights I was getting ready to install as well, I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo glad they are all safe at home!
I was looking at a bad ass Jetta II coupe with VR6 and corrado subframes, as well as ralley headlights, this car was so freaking nice, and just as I was getting myself use to the idea of it, they found my car.
Hey Branden, that would be great, I sure could use them, they are the SLC turnsignals?
Paul, you and me both.......I hooked up with Abe (Silverrado) and picked up an oil cooler from him when I was in So. Cali last week and am stoaked to see how it all comes together. Now I just need my transmission stuff and the head and I am set to go!
Re: Did Crazy-Legs Corrado get stolen? (need_a_VR6)
Actually I did, they make a torque converter that has a 2,500rpm stall and they sell a rebuild kit that allows the automatic to handle double the cars stock hp, so that will work great for me.
I am so stoaked to get it all done!
