Request for help

Postby Chicken2nite » Mon Oct 09, 2017 10:41 am

Afternoon all.

My older brother is sadly fighting a losing battle with cancer and we expect him to pass in the next fortnight at best....... All his life he's been a huge Ford man, he has a love for Capri's like i wish i could love a woman. He was a keen member of 2 local Capri Clubs and owned several Capri's. My personal fav being his Blue 2.8 with a huge Cosworth Spoiler on the back in the early 90's. the Capri clubs he was in were one based near Salisbury in the 80's 90's and one in Oxford late 90's and theres a fair chance you may have spoken to him at Classic Ford or Capri events in the past. What i would like to do is have a few Capris and Classic Fords give his hearse an escort ( pardon that pun) on the day of his funeral. We life in Abingdon Oxfordshire and i'll post more details as follows. Myself and my family would be grateful if just one person could help us out but understand its a big ask.

Thanks for reading this and please feel free to spread the word, i've posted on some other forums so fingers crossed.

Kind Regards

David Jones

So sorry to hear of your and especially your brother's situation. I expect everyone on here will feel the same. I truly wish I could help you but unfortunately none of my Capri's are roadworthy at the minute but there may be some kind people on the various forums who can.

Wishing you and your family my kindest regards.

Paul.

Couldn't agree with Paul more, I'm sure you'll receive a great response from the rest of the forum too.

I'd be more than happy to help if I can so if you want to put the details on here or message me privately with the info if you would rather I'll see what I can do.

All the best
Danny

As the others say, very sorry to hear that.
Keep us informed. It's a bit of a trek but I would consider it if possible but obviously I can't promise at this stage.
