UPDATE 29-05-2008

Finally after 9 years of owning 2 Corrado's, it has come to an end for me. As of this morning I am no longer the owner of this fine specimen. Due to other chooices that I had to make, it was no longer visible to keep the Rado. Hopfully one day in the future, I will be able to get another Rado to have something to spend my money on ;)

Goodluck to all with their cars. It was nice to be a part of the online Rado Community.

So long.





Wishlist :
As of mid june 2008 the Corrado is sold. Sadly I had to sell the car due to different reasons, but I hope to have one back in (near) future.

Goodluck to all with your cars.
