I'd be inclined to give the seller the benefit of the doubt.......that's if the genuine car didn't look completely different from this one.

Re: Interesting.....

Hi Andy,
With auctions, there are so many variables it's difficult to tell whether the market has topped out or not.
I like the moonstone blue RS500, but the black one at £97K demands a very specialist sort of buyer.
The Mk2 Lotus Cortina looks cheap at £27,600.

One from yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HbJAwsw6P8 :sorry: Rob... Hi Andy, That looks like a good show in a great setting. A show at the seaside beats sitting in a field all day! Did you take your car? I didn't see it in the video. Other than those beautiful Capris, my "best of sho...

Looks great Jason. Is that a photo of a scale model? It's so tiny parked next to those modern cars....

Re: 2.8 Temp gauge always reads low

Hi, The correct sender for the Capri has a white collar. I'm sure Martin or Tickover can supply a replacement, I found one for sale on Ebay to show you the correct one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-CAPRI-Mk3-2-0-Coolant-Temperature-Sensor-80-to-85-Sender-Transmitter-Febi/232586765900?fits=Car+Mak...

Re: Ford capri 1977 3.0s resto

I've just looked up the word immaculate in the dictionary. There was no description underneath, only a photo of Mel's beautiful car! :D

Re: Laser + GL

The car looks great Danny, especially the awesome wheels. 8-)
Is that some curtains under the car? I hope they are some old ones, not ones you are hoping to put back up before anybody notices they are missing...….. :)

Re: Bird poop: What a load of s#*t!

On a similar subject of animal excrement, I have a top tip: If anybody has the misfortune to drive through some cow shite on the road, as unpleasant as it is, I suggest cleaning it off immediately before it has a chance to dry. I've just learned the hard way..... :) Clearly, Friedrich Mohs didn't li...

Hi Jason,
I wouldn't have thought it's the real thing. But then, as you say, why would anybody do this to another?...... :)

Have a look at this thread, it seems like a close match for the 2.8 engine colour.

File Under: What Were They Thinking......

Heeeey Rat fans!
Spotted this while out and about in the fine county of Pembrokeshire. No sign of Kevin and Errol, unfortunately...

Bought from Ebay for £1295 a few years ago.

Re: Oh I wish

If Paul doesn't end up buying Mel's car, I think the rest of us should all chip in and have it for a weekend each throughout the year. :D

A bit late in the day, but Happy Birthday Paul. :cheers:
