That's a dubious point in my house Tom. The Mrs. is adamant that Northampton and above is "up north", but she's from London, so doesn't know any better.

Hello everyone,

I'm Nic and I come from Henley On Thames. Looking for a 1.6 MK3 at the moment. The Capri is my dream car and will hopefully soon be my very first car. :)
