Thread: Feeling Nostalgic

    Talking Feeling Nostalgic

    I owned a Corrado way back in the early 90s. One of my biggest regrets was trading that car in. I am now a proud new owner of a Nugget Yellow beauty! I've only driven it a few times, but the feeling is unmistakably familiar. The car just "fits" me. I am so glad to be back!

    Ha, it'll always be known as Keith's no matter what they call it Took the misses (now ex) in there to look at the now Scirocco in the window and the C went down really rather well. Funnily enough a mate who lives in Amersham (a couple of months later) threw me the keys to his Scirocco R for a quick blat and I believe the nugget still deserves that esteemed position. Spend the saved wedge over the road in the Hop Pole

    Yup always Keith garages. Always very helpful with rado bits over the years. And still now when I take a big list in... had my first corrado experience their in 1995 test drive of a white 16valve. My mate bought it didn't know him at the time. He pulled me over at the hen and chickens a few months later when I was in my 16v. Been mates ever since.
