Rustbelt Craigslist Find: 1990 VW Corrado G60

This isn't a "NP or CP?" post because there's no question. I was actually considering texting the person who posted this Craigslist ad to say "Hey, I'm not interested in buying your car, but I just thought you should know it looks awesome." But that's what murderers and stalkers do. And I've never been convicted of either.

Since that would've been really creepy of me, instead I'm posting a link to this sweet 1990 VW Corrado G60. That means it's the supercharged one.

The interior of this particular G60 looks exemplary, but it's that paint job that caught my eye. What a perfect choice. I think it needs some old school BBS wheels, but my taste and knowledge in wheels isn't so great.

Also as a bit of history: Do you know why the G60 is called the G60? Because apparently Germans have this awesome term for some superchargers galled "G laders." Sort of like G Wagen or G Thang, except the G just means G. Like the shape. According to Wikipedia, universally accepted source of facts, "lader" means supercharger and "G" describes the [edit] INTERNAL shape of the supercharger. So don't expect to see why they call it a G-lader when you pop the hood.

As always, this vehicle should be considered with caution. I'm from Pittsburgh, which is part of the infamous Rustbelt for two reasons, one is the condition of vehicles. There aren't any pics of the underside of this car, but if it got repainted, you might want to ask the seller why. Regardless, this thing looks incredible and has insane style points for the supercharger.
