As Jason said great find but in a sort of way a sad find too seeing that Capri perched on top of the pile of others :cry: and it's still has its tailgate spoiler too !!!

I wonder if they banger them? It’s certainly an odd (but good!) find, it would be interesting to know the story.

I can make out 3 Capris and a Mk2 Granada. Hopefully they go on to keep others on the road.

Still rare to see them in a scrap yard.
