Re: 4-Speed 2.8i for sale

This was the 2.8 I saw on eBay for £7895, that sold within a day

Both great buys....maybe a few more might pop up this year!

Re: 4-Speed 2.8i for sale

Nice, would look better with the original stripes, seats look great....but I saw one over the weekend in the same colour, for £7895! I don’t know how to copy the post, but I put it in the cars for sale section on the 4th....and it went within 24 hours! The low mileage 280 overshadowed it. Another ba...

Re: 6200 mile 280

interesting it did half that mileage in the first 6 months of its life!

Great example I couldn’t look after it that well, do you think it will sell quickly?

The 8k mile Special they had recently was £19k or so less!

Caught a glimpse and from what I saw, he wanted to get the interior right....did he ditch the correct strobe interior for the S,and fit the red Ghia interior, or vice versa? I’ll still watch it even if past episodes weren’t that great! Does anyone know if Fantomworks or Overhaulin ever worked on a M...

Re: My 2.8 Injection

Welcome to the forum looks like a nice Capri in a great colour combo! I personally really like the pepperpots it’s part of the signature look of the 2.8i. If you really want a good alternative then I’d go for the 15in 4spoke RS style alloys, aside to the 280 style wheels already mentioned. It’s a sh...

Re: Capri book

Amazon emailed me to say the book wouldn’t get dispatched until the 21st, but got delivery today!!

Not reading it yet until I finish Steve Saxty’s book; a couple of chapters left.

Had a quick flick through and looks as good as the mk1 edition!

Re: Discuss Saxty's Book - The Cars You Always Promised Yourself

Hi Steve, I’m really enjoying your great book bringing back many memories! At the moment I’m on the xr4i story and remember in the late 80s at secondary school; my CDT teacher (technology) who was an avid Ford owner, had a small collection of cars, one being a black XR4i. He always said that his was...

Re: Wheeler Dealers Mercury Capri

I’ve made the same mistake again by not watching this, as now I can only find a short extract!

While I had a look, I found this alternative review of a young woman driving a Capri for the first time;

Re: Bodies 3.0S

There was an updated version of the book that I brought for far less than that, even the author from another forum, told everyone not to buy at that price! There was no mention of the LHD Capri, but they did use a double for Bodie’s Capri when OWC was damaged; MOO 720V. Another story I heard was whe...

Re: Does anyone know the hidden Capri vs Sierra Story ?

Without reading the new book yet, have Ford considered an affordable GT, like a modern GT70, rivalling the likes of the Alfa 4C, or Elise etc?

With the new GT as fresh as it is, you can tell the DNA from the GT40, would the same format work in a smaller scale?

Just a thought!

Re: Does anyone know the hidden Capri vs Sierra Story ?

Great story and great way of resolving which was best, in the old school way! Thanks for sharing. I read that because the Sierra wasn’t the sales hit it was supposed to be (the styling was too futuristic) and that the mk3 Granada didn’t sell well either; that the cologne factory could continue with ...

So Ed, MB and Ant won’t share the same stage together at the NEC next month?
Like they did last year with Fuzz!

What a shame....I only watched them because the stage was near the CCI stand :D

Re: Very nice twist on the pepper pots .

Nice but prefer the original look too.

To keep the original look though, surely 15” pepperpots should be made now?
