Thanks for all the kind words did take a long time to find and in a way the car found me what is allways the way in life . She is going in to Tickover on Monday for a full service and the electronic ignition that " Fordoloic nick has convinced me to have and the rest of you guys & girls on the site .
I hope to make my first big run down to simply ford end of the month but just waiting on what my kids are doing but Iam going to the ford Capri national on the 7th May so hope to be meeting many of you on this great site .

He has done a good job as I would not have a clue and I did laugh when he asked me to drive around the bluewater car park 3 times .

So I am back from a 95 mile run today she started up fine and drove fine . Had late lunch in whistable then my dad took the wheel did laugh the old boy was like a learner . Had some one take a picture where it was parked up and looking threw the window but I was watching like a hawk.
All back to bed now as the beast from the east part 2 is coming Sunday also the roads were dry and it never got wet .

Still got that Capri smile . :beer:

Sounds like you both had a good day :D

The beast part 2 :drama: Better stock up with 2000 pints of milk and 500 loaves of bread just in case :sarcasmalert:

Hopefully all back to normal by April 1st as mine will be on the road then.
Opened it earlier and had a good sniff of the 80's :lol: Then bought a Magic Tree air freshener ready for next month :D

Hi,
As Andy said, it sounds as though you both had a great day. I was hoping to take mine out for the first time this year on Saturday, from what you say that might now be put on hold. :( At least absence makes the heart grow fonder.....

Looking through these recent photos and comparing them with that 10 year old photo you posted in the other thread, you car has hardly changed at all! Ageing very well indeed!
