Is that a Cosworth whale tail on the Capri in the old photo?
A sign of the times...... :D

Hi yes it was Andrew, I fitted it myself, drilling into the tailgate and making sure I got the measurements right was very nerve-racking to say the least. I actually fitted side skirts, front spoiler and rear valance, and it was only a 1.6 LS. LOL it was early 90's after all. :lol:

I've now recreated the exact same photo, both photos taken at my parents house. I see the tree has gone and some trees have even grown.

Once a Capri owner, always a Capri owner. :cool:

Yes classic 90s hair!
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.
