Re: Capri spotted on tv

Well the pictures aren't great Nick but to me look a little like Eric Idle and Michael Palin so I'm going with a Monty Python sketch. 10points to Peter!

Re: If you think you`ve got problems...

I can't help but wonder how a "wellness retreat" can cost £4000 a week. :shock: It sounds like a good business to be in though. Andrew. Wales is meant to be peaceful isn't it Andrew? Open a wellness retreat from your shed at the end of the garden and start charging £4k a week - you'll make a mint!

Re: Capri hot start problem

It is a bit of a shame as the VV does have a kind of historical interest value - it IS how the cars came after all. But beyond that, it really doesn`t have anything going for it, as Danny and other.... people have said, the DGAV is just better in every way. Plus you can bin all the pipes, valves, t...

Re: Capri hot start problem

After all the good work done bringing the car up to such a looker its a shame to have engine hassles , As andyd has said about his replacing the VV with a 32/36 weber and manifold ..... it will transform the car :D :D :D :D :agree: I would gently remove the VV carb, once removed throw it into the n...

Re: Door card removal / fixing new door mirror

after watching "the chaser " and other UK quizz shows ,it would seem a good many of you dont know much about New Zealand Hamish, I`ve seen contestants who thought the capital of France was Italy so really it`s not just antipodean nescience ;) I saw a great video the other day of someone being asked...

Re: A take on the electric car .

Jason, don't be so silly.
Anyone can tell you that's clearly an 80s capri - can't you tell from the slightly different shade of stitching on the door cards?? ;)

Re: Wanted for MK3 Laser - Brake Servo

Alternatively, the chap I know who has a box of parts has one if it's of interest? If you want to make an offer I can ask him if he's happy with it?

Re: Slavkov castle meeting (CZ)

You seem to be blessed with a plethora of lovely old cars over there!
I wish I could see a fraction of that at shows over here, instead everything seems to be an old E-type, or a Ford Focus!

Re: 1980 Ford Capri L 1.6

I'd agree that binning the vv is the best thing you can do for that engine - a Weber 32/36 is an improvement but will likely coat you more in fuel (it's hard not to put your foot down more!) Compared to a 34ICH which isnt a bad little carb if you aren't worried about power

Re: New addition...

Looks good Nick - glad someone else joined the S/S pinto club! 😂
Only problem though - you appear to have fitted silencers... What on earth do you want those for?? 😉
