:agree: What a great track car that would make, it would be a lot of work but immense fun, be good to find out it’s history too.

Re: mk2 1974 Ghia for sale

Car was for sale on here 4 years ago. I liked it then, it’s had a lot of work done since then & I think the newer 4 spokes it now wears suit it better than the originals. Nice car, good luck with sale :goodluck: http://www.fordcapriforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=47273&hilit=I+must+...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

..A bit like Modern Wheels / Classic Steals, it's just on in the background. Thought this was going to be promising.. but, it turned out to be just another also ran car program. The Capri one airs on Monday, watched it this week on TV Play. Won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but when the...

Re: Fuel gauge now working

Thanks for the update Rob. It's good that the last repair lasted 3 years, hopefully this repair will beat that. Couldn't the person who repaired it re-wind with new wire to make it last longer before another repair is necessary? I was hoping you might have found us all an alternative to buying a ne...

Re: Fuel gauge now working

Hi Rob, Glad you've got it sorted. Did you fix your sender yourself or did you take it somewhere to be fixed? Andrew. Cheers Andrew. Had 2 broken windings re soldered at work. The wound wire is so thin it’s easy to see why they break. Still it’s working perfectly for now so I know where I am. Thoug...

Re: Fuel gauge now working

Just an update on this, when I removed the new sender last month & checked continuity, it wasn’t reading anything until quite close to the top of its travel. Had my original repaired again & that reads on the full travel. Must have been a dodgy sender. Credit where it’s due, phoned CCI &...

Re: What a transformation !!

Anyway I can remember how the Sierra Laser was a bit of a crowded puller back then with it's jelly mould concept car stying, metallic paint, quad stereo, tinted glass, etc etc. After a run of Cortinas and a mk2 Capri it was pure luxury and style...my dad with his Tom Selleck tash and 'calm down cal...

Re: Haynes Breakfast Meet September 2018

Some more great pictures Andrew. Loved that mildly modified Nissan 300ZX & the red Fiat coupe looked like a cross between a mk1 Cortina & Sunbeam Rapier, never seen one before. Big fan of that Dodge Challenger & that Black Camaro sounded fantastic.
Cheers for the extra pics :cheers:
