Vivala Capri

Post by Mc Tool » Wed Jan 08, 2020 6:37 am

Just seem a doco about great British cars , in a nutshell the consensus is that the two best ever British cars of all time are the E type Jag ( that's a gimme ) and the Ford Capri. Vicky Butler-Henderson even alluded to the likelihood of a"good time " should you turn up at her's in a Capri. Anything by BL was conspicuous by its absence .

Yes Hamish, I can vouch for this fella :wave: :lol:

Thing with the Capri that we all see is the sheer love that everyone seems to have for it. It just seems to have a place in most hearts. Even the youngsters think they are "cool" nowadays. Everyone seems to love seeing them. Whether this makes them one of the Greatest is prob still up for debate in others views but for the whole package the Capri really did hit the spot and still does for me .!!!

It's always good to hear that the Capri is still well regarded by the public.
