Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

They got an amazing price for that Laser, considering that it was far from mint. It looked to me like the winning bidder suffered a bit of auction fever... It's funny how the condition was bigged up and, unless I missed it, the hole in the roof by the hinge wasn't shown at all until the new owner m...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Yes we had VHS too, a top loader at first :) So, a funny story about VHS. Back in the day a long long time before Google, the only way to get decent porn was on our beloved VHS format. So, somehow I ended up with a nice little collection and my manager at my previous job took an interest so i loane...

Hehe funny that. And I didn't realise this would get so much interest, it may well deserve it's own category yet!

Yes your right Dan they are the same type I had in my mk2 Escort

Re: Capri Clock

I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm simply quoting from the book. :) Andrew. Can I just say that in the other book on the ford Capri where Henry Ford JNR told the world about The Pinto being the best Engine in The World . There’s no mention of the clock in that book or the secret books there af...

Re: Capri Clock

Bit of an anorak question, but I'm interested to know from a history point of view. I've had a couple of Capri clocks and the second hand sweeps on both. But I have another spare and on that one the second hand 'ticks'. Does anyone know at what point/model/year Ford changed the clock from one to th...

Re: Sill hem color

I can confirm that the last laser and all the 280s did not have a black sill , also my other Mercury grey Capri never had a black sill . I will try and find the original photos I got from the 1st owner of mine as a later one shows no black sill . https://i.postimg.cc/SR0G1Dp7/182280-D3-E7-F0-4605-BB...
