Q&A:

Your name: Cat Spediacci

Car's name: MSH (Money Sucking Hure)

Model/year: 1993 Corrado SLC

How long have you had your car?: 10 years, June 2, 2002, the day I brought her home.

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?: I am technically the 4 owner, but actual 2nd. The two that had her inbetween the original and me don't count.

Why did you choose to purchase this car? My Jetta was totaled the week before this car came into my shop. It was destiny.

Does anything in particular influence the direction you take when modifying your car? I have built my car for myself. I have added things that I have wanted, not what ever it the "cool" thing to do.

What would you do to the car if money were no object? I would respray it, do my custom interior and upgrade the audio system. All are in the plans, eventually...

Who has been your biggest critic of this project? Myself and Ken from TST. No matter what I do, he will talk smack.

Personal Message or Special Thanks: This car would not be what it is without the help from my friends. Special thanks to all of the crew at TST, Mike Suranyi, Papa Leo, Todd Crum, Denny Vargas and Adli Yacoub (it's all his fault, I have her).
