Looks like a MK1.. maybe. Is it even a Capri? Bonnet bulge looks too long..
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.

whiff of Granada or Cortina about it from here. Nice colour though whatever it is, sort of colour that would suit a lot of modern cars if everyone weren't so obsessed with dark shade metallics at the moment.
