Re: How Much!!

How come the Escort is pretty much unusable then? No petrol in it? :) The seller states that it is "purely an ornament to be showcased or the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle in a very high end collection". To a certain extent, I have to agree with that. I can't see somebody spending near...

Re: Must be summer...

Hey all, just got the Capri out of hibernation - big thanks to Major Tom for the help driving me about to get a new battery, and doing an oil change. My pleasure. I forgot how nice condition your Capri is.. everything's so tight and true and shiny. And it has an interior that is in the car and not ...

Re: Damsel in distress saved by Capri - sort of

Cheers guys. Yes I guess she could have broken down in a worse place. She was also fortunate not to be travelling faster and hit something when she lost the steering. Don't think she felt lucky but on balance ..... Cool story. Odd how nobody got in her motor with her innit... perhaps you have uncov...

I'm sure this has been asked loads but can anyone recommend some relatively easy/cheap upgrades i could do to my 1.6 pinto to give it a bit more oomph!


A bit more 00mph? Just keep it in neutral with the handbrake on.

Re: Really?

I'm intrigued how you 'clock' a car at 156 when the (very optimistic) speedo only goes up to 140. Maybe it went round twice. A human being in free-fall only reaches 128 mph due to the drag forces. So I don't reckon that particular car would reach 156mph if you pushed it out the back of a C130 Hercu...

Re: Steering coupling rubber bush split ( can I still drive? )

So whilst some of us might be a little surprised at the question he has actually noticed a problem in the feel of the car, looked under the bonnet and asked for an opinion on what has been found so I'm not sure the insults are really necessary. Well said Peter. Be too hard on our younger members an...

Re: FWD CAPRI ANYONE?

It wouldn't be for me. After the Capri came to an end I've had a few coupe's, all RWD. I've test driven FWD ones like the Celica & Cougar but they never did it for me. To me, a sports coupe should be RWD like the Toyota GT 86, that's what it's all about. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wron...

The Ford Cougar pretty comprehensively answers that question good sir.
