Searching for 3L ghia: SNK984W or similar

Hey guys! Nice to see a few of you at the Ace Cafe at the weekend! I've recently caught up with an old friend who sold his 3L red Ghia ten years ago, plate: SNK984W. His car was an absolute beast, and by no means standard. In fact, it was the first Capri I ever went in as a passenger when I was a te...

Re: Wheel bearings please

Awesome, thanks! Just found loads on Ebay too, but like you say, better to get decent ones than some dodgy knock offs.

Ta!

Wheel bearings please

Hello all! Surely time for my annual parts beg.

Can anyone put me onto some nice new wheel bearings? Capri is at my local garage at the moment and they're having trouble sourcing any.

Ta!

Nah, that .co.uk isn't mine - it's a different Daisy. I don't freelance anymore so no website either.

I'm back! (With a broken car)

Hi all, Apologies that I tend to only stop by these days when something's gone wrong! My Capri had been fairly problem free for a while, but on Friday the anti roll bar nut fell off the drivers side front and rolled into the road along with the bush, and so the car sunk down massively onto the tyre ...

Hi guys, So i've just got my capri out of the garage early this year as the weather has been so nice – and my front two tyres would really benefit from being replaced, i've currently got Yokohamas on there, but have just been told that hardly anywhere is easily doing the size I need. Any recommendat...

Trying to track down a Capri

Hi guys, A friend of mine used to own a blue 1983 2.8i Capri, he sold it a couple of years ago due to personal circumstances but really wants it back! It had a very large whale tail - does anyone remember this car? Seen around the Cambridge area, I think a couple of you may have seen it go up on eba...
