Re: Interesting.....

I didn't think I'd ever see this stunning 2.0 S come up for sale. It is a stunner Andrew. Had a good look at it at CCI. Remember reading in club magazine that he went to buy this car for spares for his equally stunning Laser & was greeted by this beauty. Looks like a lot of graft has been put into ...

Re: Mark 4

Where are the styling cues? I see no c shape side windows, not even fishnet in the headrests. It's like they've never even seen a Capri ..

Found this online;

"Of all the films we've covered in this crossing the line series, Gone In 60 Seconds is by far the cheapest, with a budget of just $150,000 - a miniscule sum of money for a car chase flick, even by 1970s standards.
Must have cost more than that to fit out Arkwright’s shop ;)

Great picture Peter. Was watching the original ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ last night when I spotted this mk1 sneaking an appearance behind the stolen mustang.

I was a bit worried when I sat down earlier as the wife had paused an old episode of Open All Hours
I never worked out why it was called that, the hypocritical fucker spent an age god bothering at the end as he blundered around shutting the place.

New series of Bangers and Cash starts Thursday February 6th on Yesterday Channel :D Thanks for the heads up, Andy! B & C is definitely one of the best car shows on the TV, I really enjoyed the last series. Above all, it's genuine with no TV fakery. Andrew. Really enjoyed the last series of this, ge...

Amazing price isn't it. Nothing though I suppose in the real money world. People have millions to hand these days. I never really get bullet, I like to think I'm cultured (after all I'm on here and own a Capri) but I just don't get the Hyoe over this film. I bought it, watches it with great anticip...

Just thinking Rob, wouldn't it be great to have enough money to go out today and buy one of these and still keep the Capri for special occasions :D

Bullit Mustang sold

Just watched the actual Bullit Mustang auction on YouTube. Saw this car at goodwood 2018, it's a piece of automotive film history & is unrestored & quite rough. Bodywork all dented and seat coverings split, just as it should be for a movie prop. What price for this Hollywood icon? $3.4 million :o . ...
