No maidens here, but took the old Corsair for a run with my son as passenger. First it was a stop at the petrol station to put in a couple of gallons and refill the fuel can – just to be sure. The car was a bit lumpy under load but the extra choke dealt with that.
So a nice 34 mile loop of the locale was covered and felt great to be back behind the wheel. The fuel gauge doesn’t work and the temperature gauge kept moving about however the speedo was fairly accurate when compared to the speed app on the phone. The car cruised quite well at 50mph but didn’t like being under load at lower revs and performed better when the choke was eased out. It was a good drive and allowed the car to dry out some more after getting a soaking from Friday into Saturday.
