UPDATE Proud new owner of the 2 rarest Corrado (Magnums) ever made

The 2 rarest Corrados ever built will be coming to America!
I recently completed negotiating the purchase of both of the Corrado Magnum - Sport Kombi's from Germany. These 2 VW Prototypes were both built by Marold Automobil GmbH for VW so that VW could determine if they were going to put them into production. VW ultimately decided against producing them and Marold tried selling the 2 cars and all technical data for 3.2 Million DM's. Since then the cars have been in storage at Marold.
VW has expressed interest in having one car in the VW museum so I may only bring one car to the US for now.
Many thanks to Vortex Member Torsten for posting the FS link on vortex.
Enjoy the pics:





Fixed image links.

Thanks so much for your intial post. I owe you a beer.
Are you in Holland? These cars may be in Holland soon prior to the trip to the US. My father is from Alkmaar, and I have family in the area.

I will probably just have them shipped, but I may bring them to Holland first. If I do I will visit them in Holland.

Congrats! And you realize you are obligated to bring those to every major Corrado gtg in the USA, once you have them here, right?

Re: Proud new owner of the 2 rarest Corrado (vdubjb)

how is customs letting you get those through?
they took down two of my friends imported skylines... and he had them in pieces the way they are needed to get through. and they still kept them and shipped them back and lost his money.
hopefully you have better luck.
