Re: Fitting Superflex TCA Inner Bushes

I might put the bush in the fridge first. I tried that trick with a (non Capri) wheel bearing. It didn't really make the job any easier, I doubt the temperature of the freezer is low enough to shrink the object by any significant amount. I wonder if it would work better with those aerosols of liqui...

Re: American Police Capri

Great find!
Presumably that's a Japanese tinplate toy?
I wouldn't have thought it's based on a real police car, but it would make a great addition to a collection nonetheless.

Re: Runnymede December 2021

Hi John,
Looks like a great meet with tons of beautiful cars.
How brilliant is it that you're still using and enjoying your stunning Capri this late in the year? It looks as fab as ever. 8-)

Hi,
Try Martin at Caprigear. I expect he'll have hundreds of them.

Re: FORD CAPRI MK3 FRONT VALANCE

Anybody wishing to buy one could be waiting for quite a while for another to come along.
I would expect that the seller could be open to sensible offers.

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

A mate has a near concours Fiesta Supersport but he does drive it to shows if dry, and pretty much spends the first hour or more cleaning and putting mirrors so you can see the underside. On the odd occasion if has got wet he will have the wheels off when he gets home and clean the inner arches etc...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

I know some people get excited about better-than-factory restorations and all that (and it is impressive) but its not something I really get, like trailer-ing cars to shows just for everyone to have a look at, then take it home after. This is being sold as an artefact to look at, and for someone to...

Not sure, although there can't be that many green ones in existence so the chances must be good.

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

what is the difference between a collector and a horder? To me a collector will have things on display and in good condition, a horder will have a pile of stuff in the corner covered in dust and crap and no idea what is at the back. I think you're on the right tracks. I will add that a collector wi...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

Bad advert as no pics of the near side, rear, front or interior :roll: I did notice the lack of exterior photos, but the listing does say that some will follow. Perhaps the seller is waiting for the car to be cleaned properly first? Either way, I doubt anybody would spend this much on a car without...

Wind up merchant! Hehe I was going to write that then I saw your little footnote, funny! I couldn't help myself! We don't know if this green was the original colour and there had been a colour change in the past, and it has now been restored in the original Modena Green. If the colour changes had b...

:agree: This car looks stunning in Modena green, although the HPI check in the listing states that it may not be the original colour.
I wonder who restored it?
