Hi,
from 23:15 to 23:30 there is Capri 2.8i in Harry's Silverstone auction preview. And it has nice company around.

Who bought this 15 000 miles example? :-)

There are some beautiful cars at that auction, especially the Capri!
The presenter didn't give the car the attention it deserved though.

Yes, but Capri was there and it is success. ;)
There were a lot of other cars he didn't show at all.
