Thanks John. I hope the bags of cement made you laugh, they certainly put a smile on my face! A nice little touch...

Thanks Andy!
Yes, terrific weather, about 23 -24 degrees and not a drop of the wet stuff all day!
Yes, I met up with some others at McDonalds first. There were some other groups meeting there too at the same time, so there were some other classic Fords and some Focus RS too.

It was great to be a part of such a big line up of fantastic Capri's.
The convoy from McDonalds was great, although i struggled to keep up. I may have "the best handling Capri" but with the 1600, it's got to be the slowest
it was also great to be met by Adam who recognized Grandads Capri from 14 years ago!

really looking forward to the summer shows now...

Cheers Andy

I met Adam Langley a couple of years ago at a local show, he had a Green 3.0S X Pack :wub: A nice guy too.

Back to the usual rain here today and forecast most of the week/weekend, so that will be 2 local shows I won't be attending :(

Thank you, Peter. Now you own a 2.8...the zenith of Capri ownership! :D

Yes, wasn't it! Last year had a great turn out of Capris, but this year was even better. I think the weather helped a lot! Yours is a stunning looking car, really great condition.

I assumed that the bags of cement were some kind of ironic statement for the benefit of lesser informed show visitors, or were you just on your way home from B & Q or something? :lol:

Thanks for your comments Andrew,
The cement bags are really just filled with bubble wrap, for effect only (shush, don’t tell anyone). It’s amazing how many “experts” have told me I need these. And I think I’ve caused a bit of a stir on Facebook too!
