CCi monthly magazines

I have 43 in total 2015, 16 to this year. The mags are FOC if anyone wants them, the only thing I'd want is the postage paid which I would think would be about a tenner. Cheaper then buying your favourite mag plus every page is your favourite car.

Anyone interested please let me know.

Cheers.

Hope you don't mind, I couldn't see this posted on Capri Power so have copied the link & posted it there too so more folks have an opportunity to see it ;)
No problem at all mate, good video isn't it just a shame there isn't more of a focus on the UK.

Re: RIP Harry Calton

Very sad news indeed. Legacy can be a word that is often misused but not in this case. I have attached the below from a YouTube clip 1.06 in. https://youtu.be/nWuvQK5Gq50 Thanks for the link Mark. Yes I remember him from this programme 'Capri 4 Me' :cheers: No problem, yeah that's it. Seems a blood...

Re: Ford Bridgend

Very Sad indeed. Follows Halewood, Dagenham and Southampton. Germany and the rest of the world win again. Terrible news for workers and families and those support service let alone the local council who rely on council tax. I know people will lose jobs when Honda go but the sooner Honda and Nissan p...

Re: brexit

Trump, do I trust him? No. Why? Well instinct. Do I like him? Truth is I don't know him. Does he deserve to be president? Yes. Why? because he was democratically elected. Is he a good president? As good as anyone else has been and better than Obama - so far. Should he have a state visit? I don't rea...

The Book Steve Keeps Talking About or TBSKTA

I thought I would share my review on here. Everything is subjective of course so I wouldn't anticipate everyone will agree. I have the collectors edition of The Cars You Always Promised Yourself. I have just finished reading it at last! I know there has been some discussion on whether either the boo...

Re: Special Vehicle Engineering - SVE's leader speaks

Nope - Stuart was a little reluctant on Escort Cosworth. But it IS an Escort... From listening to him he was reluctant on most things, which I'm not surprisedI thought it was his idea to graft the Escort MK4 onto the Sierra platform knowing that if it fitted then the MK5 Escort body would also fit?...

Re: Classic ford magazine

Yep agree. It's of its time and too much time has passed to force an evolution.

Nice feature on a Fiesta 1300S this month.

Re: Special Vehicle Engineering - SVE's leader speaks

As said before Halcyon Days.

I am going to guess at an Escort Cosworth mule based on the MK4 Escort bodyshell that Stuart Turner wanted for rallying?

Re: speed limiters

Bad idea for me. It doesn't stop killing it starts it. Killing driving for one. Killing independence for another. Killing Joy. Police state. Don't get me wrong, in principle in an idealistic world it sounds good but if we really wanted to save innocent lives then there other ways the the EU could co...

Re: Classic Ford TV ads

I’ve just lost 15 minutes of my life watching these Ford TV ads made by ad agency Ogilvy & Mather. They were given to me by Terry Holben who directed Ford’s ads for 22 years and wrote about the experience in my book. Take a look at them here as Ford pitched us RS, Capri, Cortina, Sierra, Granada an...
