The one that started it all

Post by Paul G » Mon Apr 20, 2020 11:55 am

Over the weekend my dear sister mailed me an old photo that she had found. It is a very precious picture of me as a 17 year old with my MK2 2.0S that was only about 3 years old at the time of the photo. I loved that car and would buy it back even if it had been sat in a hedge for 20 years. Unfortunately it was last taxed in 1987 so it must of befallen a horrible end then.

Nice one Paul!

Good to look back at proper photos :D

Great picture Paul, it’s brilliant seeing things like this, vinyl roof looks great against the white too. Any more first Capri pictures out there? This could be the start of a big thread .. 8-)

Do you know what the registration of your car was? Sometimes people have posted on forums and facebook and have managed to find their cars still going.
