NZ Corrado list
« on: January 07, 2010, 10:57:02 pm »
Hi everyone,

I have put together a list of all the NZ Corrados I am aware of, and so far have the details of 9 NZ new cars and 4 imports.

NZ New:
White - 3
Blue - 1
Black - 2
Red - 7

Imports:
White - 2.0 16V
Navy Blue - 2.9 VR6
Red - 1.8 8V G60
Purple - 2.0 16V
Green - 2.9 VR6 Storm

If anyone sees or knows of any Corrados please PM me the number plate combination, or even better a photo so I can then add them. :D

Cheers!

There is a grey NZ New 16v rolling around, apparently lives in Onehunga but I have seen it in CBD twice. Can't remember number plate.

The Neil's list wasn't as exhaustive as we thought - the dark blue Auckland VR6 isn't on there, nor is the Grey 16v that Vert mentioned.  I think the Green ex-Japan VR6 may have been written off a few years ago so that's a 'maybe' not on the list as well.

Cynic - he had a black LHD g60 for parts on his red 16v with facelift bits on. Since sold to a non vasker I think? Had a good smack in the bum!

There is a LHD G60 in Christchurch that has never been registered in New Zealand (LHD) but is very tidy and complete.

It was a Jap import 2.0 16V one... the rear end of the black one was used to repair the bum of the red one after it was rear ended while parked at night.

Hi Nik.  Unfortunatley Club Supercar didn't get off the ground.  I couldn't get enough takers in Chch to make it viable within the budget I was prepared to spent on promotion etc prior exposing my self to the risk of buying the cars.  Trying to launch in the middle of the "Global Financial Crisis" probably didn't help either.  Seem to be pretty busy these days with lots of time overseas and family time when I'm at home.
