    1st run of the year

    Had a few hours to myself today,so give the Corrado the a run out
    Covered about 40 miles on A roads Motorway,runs sweet pulls like a train,
    couple of young lads in a BMW looked quite shocked as l past them at very quick speed
    Reading 44 MPG on A roads at 30 MPH.31 MPG on the motorway at 70 MPH
    No vibrations from the front wheels,drives in a straight line no pulling to n/s or o/s
    The Corrado runs as good as it looks

    I'm glad to hear you had a good run out. I took mine out on Sunday for the first run since the MOT in January. I got about 6 miles before I had to accept a caliper was binding. Turned round and went home! New caliper bought from Heritage (thanks guys) and possibly to be fitted this weekend if I get in the mood.
