Hi,
Hopefully I'll be taking the Capri to a show in Weston-Super-Mare, weather permitting. I look forward to a nice day at the seaside! :D

Will do! :D
Around 40 Capris are expected, but whether that's the case probably depends a lot on the weather.

Sounds like a good event.
I will tax mine Sunday, but having addressed a couple of oil leaks this week, I don't want to go that far on it's first outing this year just in case.

I reckon this will be there https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-m ... SwkhNauTZq I saw it locally last year, it's a beauty :wub:

So there are some shows on but I don’t think the Capri will be out playing . I just checked weather and looks like April 6 th might have no rain .

Also the Capri going in for a service and coolent change the week after at Tickover so she might get wet on the way there (omg)

Happy Easter to all and if you make the shows can we see the pictures . :beer:

Looked a great show indeed ! Sorry to tease :wave: :lol:

All the best
