Re: Information on previous owners of D745 0DM

If you are on Facebook, put your request on Capri Word or Capri Laser, often previous owners will be on there.

Some cars I have have owned had receipts with previous owners address or phone number, which makes it easy to contact them and usually they were more than happy to reply.

:goodluck:

Fairplay having a car you enjoy on a daily basis. Most of us have something practical but all very boring.
I'm lucky I just have capris then! :lol:

I always look forward to driving the Capri, and some other cars I've owned too like the Focus ST and Impreza.

Re: The pleasure of motoring..

I see lots of dozy motorists going around at night with no lights on except the permanent on front sidelights - nothing on the rear. Is it because they assume the car will do it all for them? These are the morons that drive in fog and rain with DRL (Daytime running lights) only :doh: Do we not need...

I can't see this ever making it to production in that form though.

Andrew.
As I see it Andrew, we have the UK Mustang here now so that has covered :ford: coupe/muscle car market, so no need for anything similar.

Re: New Ford Capri Possibility

Front, esp. the bumper edge, reminds me of late XJS? Never a bad thing. I thought of XJS, but the shape of grille and headlights. Similar I'm sure you agree. 1987-Jaguar-XJS-4x4-G974-BRW-1152w-x-504h-1024x448.jpg As with the Jag, the Capri(?) would be better with bigger lights and that would make t...

Re: New Ford Capri Possibility

:agree: Nick, not keen on it being called the Mk4 Capri! But no doubt about what it is supposed to resemble, and I like the overall style of it with the Vauxhall Firenza style rear end, but something about the grille and headlights that don't look quite right imo. Maybe the grille needs to come leve...

Re: Mk3 2.0 laser restoration advice

Depends on your target audience when you sell - purists won't be a fan but performance upgrades will be valued by some. At least it's reversible if you do decide to go ahead with those mods :agree: It's your car and you should do what you like. As long as you keep any original parts you remove, the...

Re: Looking for history on my Capri B193 OVT

It's annoying when previous owners don't keep or lose receipts but I suppose we are all different.

My car had little history, but I now keep receipts/invoices for anything I buy and any work done.

Just googled your cars reg and 4 pictures came up.

:goodluck: with your search!

Re: Genuine Mk3 Parcel Shelf grey

as it says he's not bothered if it sells. It might sell at that price, it might not. The seller is only trying to get the price that he feels it's worth. If it doesn't sell, I'm sure it will resurface again in a few years and it might sell then. To be honest, I wouldn't pay that much for an origina...

Keep it original
+1 Original, all day every day.
Me too :cool:

Although stainless exhaust system and wheel changes (So long as you keep the original wheels) are not a problem in my opinion.

It can be hard to keep clean, but black is a great colour for the Capri.

To be fair, it's not often that a parcel shelf in that condition comes up for sale.

Andrew.
True, but still alot for that one imo. I would start lower with a reserve, but as it says he's not bothered if it sells.

NOS I could see the price at that.
