Classic or Relic ?

Postby Caprifan Rob » Tue Jun 12, 2018 7:04 pm

Went to see a colleague who is off work at the moment & stopped off at some shops on the way. Came out to find a father & his bewildered young son looking all over the Capri as his father was telling him what it was. Ended up showing him the car & he had a real reminisce and told me what a great 'relic' I had.
Funny as I thought I owned a classic :)

Hadn't been over that way for a while & had forgotten what a great winding road it was so took some shots coming back. Must make a mental note to drive them again;

Hi Rob,
It's good to hear that the "relic" is still going strong! :D It's amazing to think that there is a whole younger generation who wouldn't have even seen a Capri before. I imagine that your stunning car will have made a lasting impression on the young lad. The dad too, by the sound of it.....
That looks like a brilliant driving road, I bet you had a lot of fun there.

Andrew.

I was filling up at the petrol station last year and overheard a father pointing it out to his son (10ish years old).

"See that, son? I used to have one of them 15 years ago. Biggest mistake I made, selling it"
"But dad, why did you sell it?"
"I met your mother!"
