I saw my first corrado last thursday. Every since that day I've been trying to find as much information as possible on this lil gem.... I HAVE TO buy a car by JAN (I have a cracked piston on my current ride) Any advice on what WILL go wrong with a corrado.....If I buy one it will be a used G90/ high miler.....What should I repair first???? Would a complete engine overhaul make since then move to the supercharger??? Thats the only down point to this dream is maintaining it, but I have a great mechanic..... Cant wait until JAN.....

The only thing you really have to worry about is the condition of the supercharger which can be pricey depending on the condition of it. If the charger has not been rebuilt and it has a lot of miles on it a rebuild is a good insurance policy. Expect to pay over a grand for a rebuild.

Hate to say it, but wait till you get to college...Money management in HS doesn't mean too much since most people are living at home off their parents. College is a whole different story- not nearly as much time for doing other things (working mainly)
