Didnt realise there were so many Yorkshire folk on here! We're representing :D

I'm from Scarborough - I dont care if people know where I live, they've got no chance of nicking the car. I can barely start it myself!

Hi all, not currently a Capri owner but I've owned more than my fair share in the past, currently trying to survive living in Wigan......

Hi!
I'm from Portugal, and i love the Mark 3 series of Capri.
I'm rather young, only 26, and seeking my country from side to side, until i find one good MK3 Capri.
Well, why this goal? all comes from my past.
In the 70's, my grandfather had one red Capri 2.6 RS in Africa, Angola.
And year after year, my interest about the car grown, and when the come of internet to my usage, it was even better!
Why? Because i started seeking information about these magnificent cars, until i came up with the MK3 generation, which was love at first sight.
I hope one day to get my own MK3, in red, if not, no problem, but mk3 for sure.
No matter if need to import one.
Here in Portugal, i only see MK1 and MK2.
I know it is possible to change the MK2 to look like MK3.
So, in the near future, i hope i'll get help getting material for one possible conversion, or help.

Greetings to everyone, this was quite a big presentation! :D

Hi buddie, Welcome aboard. Although I now live in the USA th worst day of my life was having to part with 'Babyblue '86 Laser. When I return to the UK it is my intention to buy another 'Baby' and give her all the attention she deserves. I see we have some Gunners aboard.....me too. 60+ years - watch/listen to them every week from here in Florida. Who is this team Spurs that keeps being mentioned!!!! :roll:

Hi, I'm Dom. I live near Salisbury in Wiltshire.

I have a black 1.6 Laser, fairly standard at the moment, but a stack of upgrady bits sat in the garage waiting for that spare weekend...

It has that "well used" look about it but it's doing stirling work as my daily driver while my Golf sits waiting for me to fit yet another water pump.

If only everything in life was as reliable as a Capri

Hey man, I'm from reading. it's really nice. I got my capri a few years ago, it runs like clockwork, love it. The wife loves it to, wink wink. Great for the kids to school in, little alberts almost four now, little rascal, making a mess of the seats. :lowrider:
