I bought a second Allante back in February and have been working on it as time permits.
The Car only has 38,000 original miles and the body and Interior are in great shape. It has all the common problems with the Brakes and the Bose Amps etc.
Well one of the front Calipers was sticking ..and Leaking so I replaced both fronts. I also Discovered that the Right rear is leaking so This coming weekend I will replace the rear Calipers. Problem is the front calipers seem to be sticking and the brakes are getting very hot ???? Last night when I got home they were going ..PING PING , Click Click and I could hardly touch the wheel it was so hot... Middle of the night.. I am awake thinking about it and.... Traction Control!
The 90's had traction control that would keep pressure on the front brakes to keep me from a skid...
So This morning I disconnected it and We will see what happens.

Re: OH the brakes!
You have a restricted brake hose. One or both front hoses at the caliper wont let the fluid return to the master cylinder. Traction control keeps you from spinning a tire on rapid acceleration. ABS keeps you from skidding on maximum brake application. A car with this low mileage never got the 2 year brake fluid flush. Common issue with garage queens!
