I drove my Corrado G-60 today for the first time in 2.5 months. For those past 2.5 months I've only driven the GTA.
What a blast that old Karmann is! After the smooth GTA, rediscovering the Corrado was extremely fun - It's a big go cart
It's has tweaked suspension and some extra horses, but even in standard form I think the overall feeling would be the similar. I have to admit the actual act of driving of the Corrado felt more involved and fun than the GTA with my hair standing on end. But of course it has none of the luxury and flair, and it's tiring to drive in comparison with the GTA. The Corrado is adrenalin and the GTA is serotonin.
Both of these are stayers. I can't se myself ever selling cars again - aftfer all, I wouldn't want a car that I dont' want to keep
It's so nice to have cars that complement each other, providing a wide palette of driving experiences (I also have a lovely vintage Massey Ferguson and a Jonsered garden tractor to add to that, but they're not for the road...
). I think I need a much older car next, perhaps some kind of English sports car.
So does any of my fellow Alfisti here have (or want) another cherished enthusiast car on the side, and how do you think it compares to your Alfa? Or can it be Alfa only and forever?
