Just to spare you having to watch any more seconds than is necessary of this show, you can see the car at 2.28

Re: Classic ford magazine

Often wondered why it's called Laser page and not just The Ford Capri Page :? Because it was started by Mark Swetnam in relation to his Capri Laser. It used to have a smallish Q&A section that was purely technical but gradually developed and became bigger, costlier and more time consuming than ...

Kitchen sink eh. Blimey. I'm sure I wouldn't be allowed within several yards of the kitchen sink with anything Capri related in my hands :lol:


Hehe :) I clean up after myself Peter so I'm a good boy. For larger parts the bath comes in very handy!

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

Thanks Nick :) I'll tape it. Not one of the better car shows to be honest, but they are all interesting in some way, and always good to see a Capri featuring on them (unless they wreck it)!

Personally I wouldn't really feel at ease placing 30 year old plastics in a modern 170 degrees Fahrenheit kitchen appliance with spinning arms and water jets.

Win a Capri

Back when you could actually win a Capri, this is a Ribena advert. Nice shoes fella! https://scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/50127113_2271297512904747_2289728446537924608_n.jpg?_nc_cat=108&_nc_ht=scontent-lht6-1.xx&oh=1f4de195b4555168f77ec32820a16629&oe=5CC07714

Re: New Capri owner! - Need some help!!

You could leave the original radio in place and fit a new stereo in the glove box, it's an option that a lot of owners choose. There is even a 'mount' you can buy at Halfords to make this easier, and you may wish to buy a stereo with a remote which makes life even easier. I've done this on both of ...

Re: Interior Light Bargain

The kit for the discs is only so no one buys them because they are no doubt out of stock and don't want to end the listing That's exactly it, the main reason we see 'daft' prices, it's easier (and cheaper) than removing the listing and re-listing it. Always wondered what the seller would do if some...
