Lovely car and a credit to Andrew :)
Is that a small dog at the bottom of the picture :? If so, watch out for p*ss on your wheels, I speak from experience.

Looks like it was a great turnout of Capris at WSM today, will hopefully get there next Easter Sunday.

Yup, got to agree, stunning example, doesn’t need the sun to look that good either. Fabulous weekend weather too must have been a good turnout.

Thanks Rob. :D There was an amazing turnout of all cars. I'll post some photos of the Capris later today.

Hi Andrew,
your Capri looks really great! ;)
Is it Caspian or Glacier blue?

Thanks Tom.
It's an odd shade, really. I think it's supposed to be Caspian, but when it was restored by the previous owner several years ago, it ended up being a light shade of Paris blue. I didn't like it as much as some other colours, but it's grown on me over the years.

At the first sight I thought that it is Glacier blue like mine but then I realize it is darker.
My Capri lost 2-tone paint (Glacier over Caspian blue) during restoration by previous owner in Spain. Now it is only Glacier blue and it maybe looks better than with darker bottom part.

Here are few pictures of mine:
