Re: Any thoughts on the new Ford Capri idea

I don’t think it’s a bad looking car, but agree it should not be called a Mustang and hope ford don’t do this to the Capri. I received an email from Ford announcing this new car and went and explored it on their site. The let down is the dash...because it is not mustang, just an iPad! But the argume...

Re: Adjustable Car Ramps

Are they any good, I think they were £400 or so?

Sorry no pics!

Re: Interesting.....

Lovely but a headache for me to look after, I think this one would be enough and more importantly drive to enjoy

Re: Interesting.....

Was this the orange S that caused some controversy when it was for sale, back then?

I’d consider this instead

Re: Help! Take a look at the Capri timeline

The red injection looks too much like the special; I’d change the wheels and alter the injection stripe to the early version where the top coach line continues over the lettering.
Otherwise lovely poster!

3.7injection

Hi thought this looks like an interesting 2.8; reasonably priced, has anyone driven one of these 3.7 cologne conversions?

Re: New Car Show

Perhaps James May and Ed China could do their version; just the two of them...walk into a workshop find the car totally in bits and reassemble it.... They could give it away in a competition...text a number, or auction off and donate to charity! I’ll watch the Capri episode they both take the herita...

Re: Professionals Capri stunts

No never did the stunts, never had the skills, but did get the back end out a few times!
Did play the theme tune and minder as well when I first got mine.

Closest I got to being Doyle was doing a rallying experience in a yellow mk2 escort!

Re: Leather gear knob recovering

Have you tried CCI?

They used to sell them on an exchange basis, mind you it was a long time ago when I got mine!
The quality was good as well.

Re: More Capri prototypes

If Ford kept the original side window on Colt/GBX, I think it would have evolved into this side window on the mk2/3!
