Re: Show us your interiors

Very nice Andy. Refreshing to see an 80s :ford: interior that's not a Capri :D .
Love the 80s grey that ford used throughout the decade. Reminds me of the Orion Ghia I had at the time.
Good looking car, hope to see it later in the year.

Re: Deal Classics 2018 (Ford)

Looks a great venue for a car show Peter.
All the Capris looked amazing as do the other classic fords. I agree that Granada looks great. Big fan of that mk3 Cortina too, love that coke bottle style.
Looked like a good day out. Thanks for the pictures.

I did :D . It's great to read articles when the car was current, I've got a few '80s CCI mags & read them now & again. The stories are great as all Capri 's at the time were daily drivers.

Re: Classics in Cardiff (Ford cars) May 2018

Glad I put sun cream on before going, my son did & still burnt :oops: :D . I should have taken a Ford colour chart to compare with Corey's arms, they looked like a nice shade of rosso red to me! Josh looked even worse, being there all day. When he took his sun glasses off he looked like Donald ...

Re: Classics in Cardiff (Ford cars) May 2018

Hi Andrew, can always rely on you for some great pictures (especially as I couldn't take any on the day.. Again). Was great to meet up again and look round your immaculate 2.8i. There were so many cars there, I didn't see quite a few in your pictures. Glad I put sun cream on before going, my son did...

Re: Show us your interiors

Hi Mel, your interior looks to be as well presented as the rest of your stunning mk2. I can vouch for Andrews interior being immaculate, caught up with him on Sunday & as my son said, the car looks as good now as when we first saw it 4 years ago. Here are some shots of my Special interior: https...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Why do they insist on making work for themselves though? In my opinion, the car's new DIY paint job wouldn't have added much value to the car over what the car was worth before painting. In the close-ups it looked shockingly bad! :agree: Watched this with my youngest & really enjoyed it. Not fo...

The name on the plaque was Ric Wood, probably the best in the business.... He does incredible things with cars Was well impressed with his workmanship & attitude. He didn't want to make a simple RS replica, but an uprated version with its own style. Very nicely finished, well engineered & p...

Re: Car SOS Ford Capri 3100 !!!!

At last :D didn't know this was coming on this week. Andrews pictures show a lot of detail work has gone into it. Looking forward to hearing the background story & seeing the car receive the great work that Fuzz & his team lavish on these restorations.

Where did these all disappear to? That one looks to be in great condition & a bargain at £400, find another. Hope your gamble pays off.
