Thanks Nick :) I'll tape it. Not one of the better car shows to be honest, but they are all interesting in some way, and always good to see a Capri featuring on them (unless they wreck it)!

Hi Paul, Yep, deffo worthwhile watching as you say all interesting in some way. Here's a sneak preview of the Capri on tonights show. Does look rather nice. Has a complete Red interior. Thing with these guys is they usually seem to like originality so unlikely it will get wrecked... :o :lol:

I probably said the same thing with the last series..... Imo they should do one car per episode.
After the introduction, 3 advert breaks then a repeat of what you saw before the adverts, you have no more than a 45 minute programme which isn't enough time to see all the aspects of the transformation properly :?
Maybe then it would be too similar to WD and Car SOS :headscratch:

But both cars looked good when complete.

Thought the Capri looked great, liked the fact that Drew wanted it to look original, with the top spec Recaro’s etc. Although he threw a childish tantrum (along with that headrest). The new owner looked well pleased.
Would have liked to have seen a lot more of the build mind. Would have gone for a red respray on the Lancia though. Didn’t mind the rally wrap but without the extra spoilers of the original cars it didn’t quite look right.
Overall though will give it a look again. Cheers for the heads up.

I enjoyed this episode and thought the Capri looked great.
Can't understand why the lad sold it in the first place and kept that Vauxhall though..... :D
