Just opened it before going to work to have a quick peek. Really looks stunning with some amazing design pictures !!!

This copy is numbered 212 which is exactly 100 copies after the 112 copy Jason got and very kindly agreed to swap. So as said onlyjust a quick peek but it really does look a tremendous read...

Oh and before any one asks if I did a you tube video....

Hi Nick,
Tea towels and REM. It doesn't get much better than that! :D
It sounds as though you are pleased with the book, and to be honest, it's hard not to be as it feels like such a quality item.
Nice arty video, by the way.

Andrew.

Yes it’s a great book nick I have been reading it and it’s a book with history and some great reference to the cars we love still waiting n young Andrew to start the ball rolling but we will now have to wait for young nick to catch up with us .
I bet you read backwards first with the cars ?

Mine has arrived but not read it yet. Think I have owned almost every coupe so should be interesting. I have owned Capri 1,2 and 3 Escort XR3, XR3i etc Puma, Cougar and Focus CC.

I've been busy so I've only read a few pages. It seems great so far though, with lots of early design sketches of the Capri that I haven't seen before. It's interesting to see how the different thought processes influenced the look of the car, evolving it from a scaled-down mustang into the car we know and love.
