Re: Color for my late father's car

A tough decision indeed. I guess you have to decide whether the car will be as your dad wanted it & enjoyed it, or whether its your car & you want to put your stamp on it, its an emotional choice & only you can make that decision. If, you want to stick to originality as some have already said for po...

Re: The Chinese coronavirus

Chap from our office went to Italy last Sunday as it was already booked and paid for. He's spent most of his time there making arrangements to get back and will then have to shut himself away on his own for two weeks :banghead: Our friends have just got back, they had to get the train (well several...

Cradle to grave emissions, your Capri & pretty much everyone's else's would be more environmentally friendly than anything else in the car park mate ;)

Re: Hello! Got myself a laser

Any good spray shop can colour match the colour you need, one tip is if the fuel flap is the colour you want, it can be removed & scanned by a good paint supplier ;)

Welcome back to Capri ownership :)

Re: How do we make an all electric capri

I personally can't see it happening, as already said there isn't and won't be the infrastructure to support it, think of all those nuclear power stations that will need to be built to keep up with demand. I read a report saying petrol will be cheap as company's producing it will lose market if all ...

Re: New bangers for cash on tv

I really enjoy this program, the enthusiasm of the family & such broad knowledge of all vehicles without BS plastic presenters makes it a very enjoyable watch. With my nerd hat on, I had to smile at the seller, "its british racing green" Buyer, "there's a bit of wear on the drivers seat bolster", wh...

Re: Future Classics

Just to add a little more to the youth appreciation, our 20 year old engineering trainee bought a road worthy 1992 classic Mini about September time last year.

Needless to say he has been picking the brains of many of us older gits who had them as first cars back in the day ;)
