Re: 1987 Ford Capri 1.6 Laser (2.0S lookalike)

My advice is to get an MOT on it - it will make all the difference in the world. Unfortunately a lack of MOT does just end up putting off so many potential buyers. Although you know that it will pass easily and you only haven't had it done because there doesn't seem a point- thats not the way that a...

Re: Optimistic!

There seems to be a certain type of seller who instead of looking around at comparables, taking advice from people on forums etc enthusiastically sticks their fhead in the sand and advertises their car for a ridiculous amount and often with a poorly worded ad that raises more laughs than interest.

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

For £ 250 for a new genuine Weber 38/38 (or £ 75 for a Chinese copy) it may just be worth replacing rather than laying out on labour to a garage.

As said, if in doubt try it with a borrowed carb and you will know straight away.

Re: Mk3 Laser 2.0L Mad Max style for sale

The satin black gives a nice understated look. There will be a market- just look at the number of cars wrapped in matt black. I fear that advertising it as a Mad max lookalike will be narrowing your market though. Its not very far down the Interceptor lookalike route really but it is quite a sound l...

Re: 3.0 Ghia - Problems

Can you borrow another38/38 carb from someone else who has a 3 litre ? It would take no more than half an hour to swap over and you would pretty much know within the next hour whether it made the difference. Offer a couple of bottles of wine, Capri owners are generally happy to help another owner es...
