I'm writing another book on the Capri, titled "The Coupes You Always Promised Yourself" that tells the story of the Capri and the cars that followed it.
Some of you may know about the one I did 21 years ago but this is a far, far bigger project and covers the products, prototypes and the people of Ford. I wanted to expand the story to include Ford's politics and how it impacted the Capri into the Sierra and the coupes that followed. Perhaps the most interesting bit is that in 2002 there was program S272 to bring back a retro-modern Capri in the book.
Because we have social media now, the book has its own page https://www.facebook.com/fordcoupes/
where I'm posting odd thoughts as it is written. It's also been a great way to get contacts with people and their cars, like the old Henry FordII Capri Injection auto I was offered when at Ford.
The best way to find out more is to visit the book's website at https://www.stevesaxty.com
and there you can sign up to get free samples from the book at https://www.stevesaxty.com/sample-pages
This will be a large, full-colour book that will be three times longer than my old one sand initially limited to 1,000 copies.
I hope you'll be as interested in reading it as I am in writing it!
