Re: Nice gesture!

Top man and it's great to see so much emotion at being given the chance to drive a Ford Capri. I know it's missing the point of the story, but according to the subtitles, as written by The Sun, his dream is to "race a 3.0 Ford Capri MK280"...."so we tracked one down" :headscratch...

Re: Project Boot Resto

I resprayed the top section of ny n/s inner wing about 2 weeks before The Ace so was expecting to get people saying " have you resprayed your inner wing" but no one did all day !! Hi Nick, That's a top quality job! I spent some time looking under your bonnet at the Ace, and I didn't notic...

Re: What....

Sadly, this will go wrong sometime/somewhere and these events will not be held anymore :( It very nearly did on a few of those clips, especially #1. I sort of understand why young men in their nice cars feel the need to show off in front of a crowd, but these sorts of exits from car shows annoy the...

Yes, there are present, but had started to perish with age.

I would, it can't do any harm.

Re: Wanted 2.8i struts etc

Hi,
Have you contacted the usual Capri specialists?
If you get no joy with them, there is a pair on Ebay:

Why do this to a Sierra? Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to have bought a tent instead?

Re: What’s your favourite car show ?

I've been watching a lot of Overhaulin' too. Both Overhaulin and Fantomworks are repeated on Quest, along with the entertaining Classic Car Rescue. Chip Foose is a talented designer and his designs are a nice balance between custom and standard. I don't agree with the pranking though, as it doesn't ...

That looks stunning.
I can't watch the episode though. Only posh people can afford to get the Discovery channel...…... :)

Re: A couple of bits

Mine has a bung with a small hole through the middle which I believe is factory standard. My car has got the same as Neil's. One of mine is slightly perished though, so if anybody is able to find a source for a suitable replacement bung/grommet/whatever, please can you let us know. Thanks. :D Andrew.

Re: Project Boot Resto

Hi Nick,
As said, what you've done so far is looking really good. Now you've whetted our appetites, we are eager to see more....
Are you going to do any more on the project before the car goes to Tickover, or are you going to wait until it comes back?

Re: Battlesbridge Classic Ford Show 2018

Andrew's car has made me fall in love all over again though, that is absolutely stunning! I wholeheartedly agree with that. From what I can see in the photos, Andrew's S must be one of the very best Capris in existence. Loving that ceramic coated manifold! 8-) I hope I'm able to see the car in pers...

Thanks for the update Jason.
It's about time somebody made one of these for the Capri, fair play to guy who is doing them. He's going to be able to retire early because they are going to sell like hotcakes!
I'm definitely going to buy one.

Hi Nick,
Sounds great! What better place to take your car than Tickover? The chaps are sure to do a grand job.
You'll have your own reserved parking space down there before too long.... :D

Sorry Peter, I have no idea of the history regarding these cars. Perhaps the Police kept getting reports that the cars were stolen and dumped? It's a truly intriguing situation.

Re: The Ace Cafe 2018

B975GAV looks intriguing (Damn there goes my V8 thing again) :roll: It appears to have the same rear silencers as A304PAT. Nice looking exhaust and it suits both cars. I have seen a similar style on a Capri before, think it's custom made.....Definitely not Sportex or Janspeed! Hi Andy, Obviously I ...
