    Doh! What you don't want to do when ........

    .......showing your car to a possible buyer.


    Hi all

    Had a good day out on Saturday at the Aberdeen mini meet to show JoeM my VR6. We managed to shake on a deal and the car will be heading west to Glasgow on Wednesday this week. Hardest decision of my life so far was to sell the VR, it will be sadly missed.

    However as you can possibly tell by the title of this thread the day wasn't completely uneventful. I had Joe in the passenger seat of my car, pointing out the features and having a bit of corrado chit chat when my phone went. Not remembering where I placed the phone I started to look round the cabin (we're sitting in slow to dead stop traffic) when all of a sudden Joe shouts out and I look up just in time to see myself drive into the back of a ford escort!!! Feck! :cry: To make matters worse it was Roddy (VR6Storm) on the phone asking which direction we had gone, so it was your fault Roddy ... :wink:
    Luckily the escort had the old style black plastic deformable bumpers and coupled with the slow speed meant that there was not a mark on my car but a lot of colour in my cheeks.

    I managed to take quite a few photos of the 4 corrados assembled and will post some of them later this week. Thanks to Specialist Cars in Aberdeen for allowing us into their new and as yet unopened facility to allow us a decent venue for taking photos.

    cheers

    What are you getting instead of your Corrado? I can vouch for the fact that :

    a) You wont stop comparing your next car to the Corrado..
    b) You'll be working out when you can afford another one..
    c) You'll still read forums and the mailing lists, replying as if you were still an owner!

    I will be picking up a 96 jeep cherokee on wednesday and in answer to your points

    a) My wife has a 1.8T A3 which I am hopefully going to chip if she agrees but as Roddy will testify I've been comparing it with my Corrado quite a bit and it doesn't come close as a drivers car.
    b) I've been trying desperately to justify buying a 4x4 and keep the Corrado for weeks now, failing miserably each time I think I've come up with a solution.
    c) I am still planning on using the Corrado sites and attending meets as an ex Corrado owner because its just a "temporary Coraddo-less situation" I'm in.
