This car is my absolute dream Capri. It's sex on wheels and to die for IMHO. Stuff your Brooklands etc.

You're a very lucky man to own it and have done an exquisite job in restoring it. When the better weather comes enjoy it and go win some trophies!

:agree: You don't realize how small older cars are compared with modern stuff :shock:

My Sierra isn't a small car, but looks lost next to the likes of the latest Astra. New cars have got so high and wide :?

Used to think the Capri was a big car in the 80's, looks tiny now :)

Tasla, your car is a fantastic example. The work you've done has brought this MK2 to the top of the tree. Fantastic, hope to see it next year. Enjoy :cheers:

It's still gorgeos!

The only thing I would have done different is to paint the sills and number plate surrounds in satin black as per factory but I think it actually looks better as you have it.
