Re: new wheels fiited

I like the car on 15" but nothing more. In case you wondered why the problem is that wheearches are designed to radius around a wheel. The Capri was obviously drawn in the era of tiddly 13" wheels and the 15% RS-style seven-spokes look comically large and wonderful - but nothing bigger in diameter ...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

So was that the one Andrew we saw at the CCI last year ? That's it, yes. Hopefully they will show it being sold later in the series. That S will look superb once it's finished. Andrew. They have these coming up soon. https://mathewsons.co.uk/auctions/auction-dates/vehicles/10781-new-entry-1972-ford...
