Nice! Are the RST wheels a silmilar offset to the originals? What brand tyres did you go for?

You lads are lucky to have Tickover on your doorstep. I'd have to travel a long way to find a Capri specialist....

Re: No matter how carefull and protective of ur car !

Sorry to hear about what has happened to your car, but I'm glad that you can now get it fixed. I think that I'd probably be too scared to stand up to the mad woman in that situation....

I met Jason and his Dad at the CCI Nationals and they are cut from the same cloth. A pair of right characters! :)

Hi Andy,
It looks superb as ever......but I was never any good at spot the difference. Have you 'done a Nick' and fitted 15" wheels? :)

Re: Lowering pictures....

Hi Nick,
Your car looks superb, the team at Tickover did a really good job there. 8-)
Jason's car also looks fantastic. I nearly didn't recognise it without mud splashed up the side... :)
I see that he's reverted back to the white plates.

Hi Andy,
Are we still planning to meet up at Haynes for August?
That will help ease the pain of missing QS. :)

The 2.8s all had body coloured mirrors. I'm not sure if the 4 cylinder cars still had black mirrors at that time.

Re: Queen Square April 2018

Hi All, July, August and September meets at QS are also being moved to a new location at the request of the local council. I see from the Facebook page that the plan is to charge people to attend the relocated meet. Basically, it has now become just another car show that is not worth travelling any ...

You're right, when was the last time anybody saw a 131? I don't even see them at any car shows. 21 Mirafiori and 131 are licensed in total, that explains why they are very rare 'in the wild'.

Re: CRaP 2018? And update on me

Hi Dan,
It's great to read an update of what you've been up to.
The Sierra looks like a corker, good luck with the sale.
It's also good to see some of those war re-enactment photos. Next time you see Churchill, ask him about a discount on your car insurance renewal.......... :whistle: :D

Re: Classics @ Scolton 2018

I wonder if we could start looking at a club forum information stand as it’s the 50th of the Capri next year . Also I don’t even know where to look .
