Masi Gran Corsa Info Requested

Anyone out there with ownership or significant riding experience with mid to late 80's Masi Gran Corsa model. Can't find a lot of info on these in terms of ride quality and such so I am interested in getting a little feedback please. Thanks for any info!

I like them better than the Nuova Strada that was the next model up.
Geometry more like the Gran Criterium of the period.
The sleeper of the price point Masi line.

I have a catalog from 1988. Here's a couple page scans from it, if you want to compare geometry/etc. with other Masi models from that year.

Interesting the numbers they publish don't match my measurements.
The Nuova Strada was steeper, with a shorter top tube than the Gran Criterium but the angles...
Maybe the subordinate models changed over time... That would surprise me.

I love mine, rides great. I bought mine as frame then built it up with mostly Super Record. I'm always surprised how cheap they sell for, way undervalued in my opinion. And it always gets a few comments at the coffee shop.
