Very nice! It just seems weird to have wood on the interior of a Corrado. Any other pics of the rear seats and the hatch area? I'm curious how they finished those areas off. :cool:

Wood grain trim makes perfect sense for an estate car in Europe.

That said... still waiting to see pics of the interior *that is different from ours* - namely, the back seats, and the rear hatch & stowage area. :thumbup:

Looking great so far!!

the paint mostly is what I'm referring to.. . at least one was covered in scratches and they were poorly repaired with globs of touch up paint. I recall a long what looked like a key scratch down the whole side of one that had touch up all sloppily applied to it from end to end... . interior was a little shoddy as well.. . maybe I'm just nitpicking they are nice cars.. . don't get me wrong. I guess I was just expecting them to be mint examples.

They've been sitting around or being moved from place to place in storage for 20+ years without upkeep or restoration and very little driving. Scratches happen, especially if you're moving stuff in and out of a storage facility around these cars. I'm under the impression that the owner will be restoring them.

my mk3 jetta has been sitting around and being driven from place to place for about the same amount of time all over NYC and it's cleaner than that.. . I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that... I was just saying I was expecting them to be mint that's all.. . and a car like that I would have repaired better or not at all until the time was right.. . I get that the owner wants to show them off and I'm glad he does.. they're def nice to see and all that... I was just stating an observation.

You probably wash it/detail it on the regular, or at least a couple times a year. And I didn't mean driving from place to place, I meant being moved from place to place on trucks, in containers with other items, etc. Sometimes that kind of thing can cause more wear and tear than being driven under its own power. I'm just stating my thoughts/observations here as well.
