Re: Next Year will be the 50th Anything Happening?

Hi All,
Are there still plans to have a Laser Pagers section within the 50th anniversary event?
I seem to remember it being mentioned last year, but are there any plans afoot to meet up beforehand to convoy to the event and park together?
Any thoughts on this?

Andrew.

News Hot Off The Press

Anyone see EastEnders tonight?
Alfie Moon has a 280 stashed in his garage, build number 56, apparently!
Hopefully we'll be seeing some V6 Capri action in EastEnders on a regular basis. :D

I was wondering why Jason had started getting worked up over a lez. Turns out he's talking about something else entirely....

Yes, same here. We've had lots of cold nights over the last week so the gritters have been out to play. Plus it didn't stop raining yesterday and today doesn't look much better......

Why bother if yours is working fine?
The part alone is £45 at Tickover, and that money would buy a lot of tea towels...... :lol:

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

They were very clean and possibly restored....If so I would have been interested in seeing that too. I would be amazed if they hadn't bee re-upholstered, as they were in superb condition. I've never heard of the guy they bought the original set of seats (the infamous headrest set... :D ) from thoug...

I enjoyed this episode and thought the Capri looked great.
Can't understand why the lad sold it in the first place and kept that Vauxhall though..... :D

Re: Fuel tanks - Latest batch now available.

They aren't going to be manufactured indefinitely though are they? Once demand dwindles to nothing, no supplier is going to want to commit to having a batch made....

Re: 1000 mile laser

Yes check the blokes feedback as the last person who bid on the car says it’s more like a million miles . Good call, Jason. The person you mention bid £5300 for it.... :doh: But look at how deceptive the photos are on the original listing. They don't show the O/S/R wheel arch at all, or much of the...

Re: 1000 mile laser

If the mileage is genuine, and like most of us I have my doubts, in this case I don't see the low mileage as a selling point. The overall condition of the car makes the benefit of low mileage irrelevant. Whether this car has 1000 miles or 101,000 the whole car is still going to need restoring and ov...

Re: What colour paint

Hi,
Ian (mellow yellow) sells the stickers and they are great quality. I think he's mainly on Capri World (Facebook) these days.
I think the best person to ask about the colour of the rocker covers is Martin at Caprigear. I'm sure he'd know.

:goodluck:
