Getting hard to keep?

Is it me or are ANY Capri parts getting harder and harder to get hold of these days.
I can still remember finding them in scrap yards.
But know getting stuff is just proving well hard its a case of people are keeping all they have to use/trade/sell
OR
Sell them on at a limited number to value rate?

What was the difference

hey guys
been having a think and I need to know if they was any difference between the shells used on the 3.0 VS the shells on the 4 Cylinder models?
I am fully aware the 2.8 had extra bits added but I've never found out if the 3.0 did.
thanks on advance.

Re: New Top Gear

Well in all fairness I have given it 3 episodes and to be totally honest I think that is simply because
there is nothing else to watch....
I seriously don't enjoy it like Clarksons time, its too 5th gear too serious.
Sorry but I think they should let this season run and kill it off.
