Hi,
Try Martin at Caprigear. I expect he'll have hundreds of them.

Andrew.
:agree:
Martin would be my first port of call for any used and new parts https://caprigear.co.uk/

Re: Who Remembers?

I never thought I'd see the day but That's TV, Channel 7 (regional) and Channel 91 (National) are re-showing the Benny Hill Show. Incredibly funny, far more so than I remember it to be. Some of the sketches (which he wrote) are very clever, never realised he was such a genius. Good to hear they are...

I would expect that the seller would be open to sensible offers though.

Andrew.
I will bid him £100 and if accepted I will offer it on here for £1000 :cool:

That's always been my problem, I'm just too generous :wave:

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

:agree: This car looks stunning in Modena green, although the HPI check in the listing states that it may not be the original colour. I wonder who restored it? Andrew. I think they were green, white or blue only :headscratch: Looks a nice job but I would never change a colour from it's original on ...

Ahh that smell, would love to have it just one more time.
We still get the smell when it hasn't been used over summer, it takes me right back :D

The one we have now has 2 settings and a thermostat, so set low shouldn't cost too much to run.

Re: FORD CAPRI MK3 FRONT VALANCE

All these daft/inflated prices are doing the scene no good at all. :agree: Anyone who was desperate for an item would find it hard to justify some of these asking prices, no wonder they don't sell for months on end! I know people aren't going to give items away especially if rare, but the greed of ...

Re: Who Remembers?

Who can remember this type of fire/heater, which was very common back in the day, must have cost a fortune to run, but in these days of everything-must-be-electric perhaps they'll make a comeback! https://www.for-sale.co.uk/sh-img/124198375_10165958461900347_5039464432219752346_o_electric%2Bbar%2Bf...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

That sounds like Nick!! I fondly remember the Ace Cafe a few years back, the heavens opened and it rained for about half hour - as soon as it stopped raining Nick rushed out with a drying cloth to mop it all down, only for it to rain again ten minutes later :lol: I'm with you Andy - I'd much rather...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

A mate has a near concours Fiesta Supersport but he does drive it to shows if dry, and pretty much spends the first hour or more cleaning and putting mirrors so you can see the underside. On the odd occasion if has got wet he will have the wheels off when he gets home and clean the inner arches etc...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

I know some people get excited about better-than-factory restorations and all that (and it is impressive) but its not something I really get, like trailer-ing cars to shows just for everyone to have a look at, then take it home after. This is being sold as an artefact to look at, and for someone to...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

Is this that RS3100 that was doing the rounds for a few years and just not selling? It was 25,000 - 35,000 last time I saw it I think :/ Not sure, although there can't be that many green ones in existence so the chances must be good. Andrew. This might be the one you are thinking of RPU654M https:/...

Great show :) Would that be dubbed into Czech then, or subtitled? It's dubbed into Czech. ;) The Professionals is one of few "west world" shows, which could be broadcast here during communist era. But only 21 episodes from all 57, which were "politically correct " (no KGB, etc.)...

Re: Most Expensive Capri ?

It will probably end up with a 'collector' never to be driven again :( Watching re runs of Shed and Buried, I was thinking what is the difference between a collector and a horder? To me a collector will have things on display and in good condition, a horder will have a pile of stuff in the corner co...

Bad advert as no pics of the near side, rear, front or interior :roll:

A picture paints a 1000 words, so whatever the price take as many pics as possible so any buyer is sure of the overall condition and avoid loads of questions!

Lovely car but unless you have money to burn it's pretty much unusable at that price :?
