Cheers both, missing driving in general, haven’t even used the daily as I’m off work. Hoping this will be all over soon & just be a bad memory. Looking forward to burning petrol :D

Rolled out the Capri for its sixth anniversary with me & ran it up to temperature, shame the drive is the furthest it’s going at mo, roll on when all this is over. Hope everyone is well.

Hey Rob, Sorry fella but only just seen this mate :doh: :lol:

What a great photo of your stunning 2.8i :applaud: What a truly beautiful Capri and congratulations on this being your sixth year of ownership. Just a dam shame this year is what it is ! I miss your pics up on the Breacon Beacons to pick up an icecream :wave:

Take care Rob

All the best

After a chance conversation, HAY has gone to it's new owner also in the south west region.

I still like the Capri and classic car scene and will always be around it, but no longer desire to own one. Time to move on with something I can get more use from.

I felt like this about a year ago, but decided to stick with it. Sadly 2020 has made me realize we don't know how long we have left so should go after what you want :)

I will still be on here as I have been in the past when Capri less, giving my views and opinions I've learned through my years of classic Ford ownership :lol:

:cheers:

Oh Andy, sorry to hear that. So long as you replace it with something nice and even more importantly stay as a member/contributor on here.

All the best. Paul.

Thanks Paul!

Alot of good people on here so I will always be around :cool:

I don't drink, smoke and rarely go out (Boris would like me :lol:) cars are my only interest (After family). So saving for a UK Mustang V8 Coupe, and have my name on a few dealers books. Always wanted one since I saw them in 2015 and decided now is the time to take the steps :cheers:

Hey Andy

Totally get your reasons for selling and I'm sure HAY will be well looked after by it's new owner.

I look forward to the day when you call or text to say you've purchased a V8 Mustang!

Hopefully get to catch up sometime soon pal.

:ford: :goodluck: :cool:

This made me feel sad, but I can’t help but agree. 2020 has made me realise that if you don’t do what you want to do now, you may never ever get to do it. The best of luck to you Andy.

Hi Mags,
This year has kicked me up the backside to do something I've been thinking about for a while but then dismiss again :?

Not getting any younger so need to tick that box :D
