You sound like me Andrew :) Yes, can you imagine now, a car advert boasting about how fast you can go!

Thanks Jason. I know, quite bizarre isn't it, to think that any Capri was once one of the world's fastest cars!

Tickford Advert

Love 'em or loathe 'em (opinion seems pretty evenly divided on these), the Tickford Capri is a very striking car. And one of the world's fastest cars? Didn't realise that. Original advert which I saw recently, below - https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/31355642_1909941619040340_5795957356...

Re: Undersealing

but I also read about how some people have jacked their car up afterwards and its all been left on the jack when they take it down again It really isn't that bad. It doesn't stay wet as such. But if you was to dig your fingernail in it hard, it would scrape off and you would have some black on you ...

Re: I Couldn't Resist It!

Good choice Andrew :) I have seen this re-release for some time, it is a very classic design. I still have an original one, needs a new strap though, that rubber just perished.

Re: Springs moving in seats - hose trick

My spring used to twang, but it had actually snapped. So I replaced both and it hasn't happened since. Mine had the sleeving on, as Martin (CapriGear) mentions, but it was pretty wrecked, and I did look at alternatives to this, actually bought some automotive tubing from the motor factors, but it se...

This stuff is great - https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/717QGjWiRdL._SY355_.jpg I know someone who has used this on their Capri from new and it's still sound decades later. Easy to apply too and keep on top of, just brush on as you think you need to. Can get it as a spray also if you ...

Re: Classic Rally Escort Capri Repair

There's still no need to commit murder though Paul, as you can still buy leaded petrol in Algeria. It's supplied by a firm in Cheshire, apparently. Andrew. So, it is still available, just, hanging on by the skin of it's teeth! It can't be long though, before it's simply not available full stop. But...

Thank you Rob. I love seeing them too, but when I found out what happened with the Capri I couldn't believe it. Would any of us have agreed I wonder?!

Re: Classic Rally Escort Capri Repair

This is a great clip! The Capri driver goes above and beyond the call of duty to help out the team. I know, he's very affable isn't he. Don't think I would be! Thanks Andrew. Is that 4 star petrol for 73p a gallon at the start? You could have a point on things being better in the old days :lol: Wel...
