Re: I'm back......

Hi Andy, Sad to see such a fantastic Capri go, but I look forward to seeing the Mustang......and probably hearing it from a mile off too! :D Have you given any thought to which colour you're going for? Andrew. Hi Andrew, Capri isn't gone too far and may well appear at Haynes as the new owner does a...

Re: I'm back......

This made me feel sad, but I can’t help but agree. 2020 has made me realise that if you don’t do what you want to do now, you may never ever get to do it. The best of luck to you Andy. Hi Mags, This year has kicked me up the backside to do something I've been thinking about for a while but then dis...

Re: I'm back......

After a chance conversation, HAY has gone to it's new owner also in the south west region. I still like the Capri and classic car scene and will always be around it, but no longer desire to own one. Time to move on with something I can get more use from. I felt like this about a year ago, but decide...

God help us?

With a second Covid wave and more lockdowns on the horizon, fingers crossed it doesn't get as bad as it was. If everyone gets on with the rules, stop ignoring the laws (albeit confusing at times) we will get through it. Unlike the people of Yemen who don't believe in the virus, and that God is helpi...

What is worrying is that it doesn’t seem all that long ago to me.
:agree: I can still remember being in the car showroom in the 70's, and the new car smells :D (Something I certainly won't experience now :lol: )

I thought we were going to need one when we bought the Capri (1985) but I think they were phased out somewhat before our time. Hi Mags, I remember the e...

Is that an actual thing, from back in the day?
I can sort of remember those, but do remember a new car shouldn't go over certain RPM for so many miles to break engine in slowly.

Just read this paragraph that confirms what the OP stated; "The paint is 95% factory original. The front valence has been repainted, part of the near side quarter panel due to a scratch on the wheel arch and a small section of the scuttle panel on the drivers side . The repainted items were obvious ...
