That's a bit difficult, as here in the west we still have to rely on smoke signals..... :)

I'll leave it until the end of the week and then send Colin a message. I'm pretty sure there is no real issue as you've all received yours.

Re: Dash Protectors

Back on topic, it's been 14 days since my order and I haven't received any further emails. Or the dashmat. :(
Hopefully I'll hear something soon.

Ford were trying everything to cure the supposedly wayward handling. Some say they even offered a lump of concrete to fit in the spare wheel well as an optional extra.... :D

I don't know, but I think it must depend on the car and also the insurance company. My brother insures his Alfa Spider on a classic policy and it is only 19 years old.

Re: Rare Capri Model Spotted on Streetview.

Joking aside might be worth editing the address out though people with no morals may get ideas if the cars still live there Good point, and one I took into consideration when I posted the photo. However, I didn't bother editing the address as the street view images were captured in 2011 and both Ca...

Re: Prop shaft removal

Hi,
Other than the central mount, there is nothing else holding the prop in place.

If you've already removed the engine and gearbox from the car, I would have thought that it would have been easier to remove the prop from the gearbox first anyway.

I know it was Mercury grey, and it was taken from the South Wales, possibly Cardiff area. Andy will be able to confirm that and be able to fill in the rest of the blanks.

Re: Why not to speed approaching a roundabout !!

I love seeing things like this, because I can just imagine the smug look of the van driver, thinking he's so clever by getting past the slower traffic. Then that smug look turning into a look of terror. Clown. I just hope that nobody else was injured or their property damaged. The video reminds me o...

Sorry to hear that...... :whistle:
They look to be in good condition and only need a bit of fettling to make them perfect, I'm sure somebody will want them.
Good luck with the sale.

Luckily for us, you're more involved with this forum than a lot of Capri owners! :D
Plus the 50th celebrations will be worth attending for anyone interested in the cars.
