Hi,
Interesting look through your Capri history. I bet you have lots of happy memories with those cars. :) Love your gold 3.0 Ghia.

I wonder if there is still a street anywhere in the UK with two Capris with different owners?
All the best,
Andrew.

thanks mate we love having another capri again and now im older i really appreciate these cars i went 15 years without one up until i bought the gold 3.0 ghia in 2012 . I dont think you will find a street in the uk with 2 capris on , in the 90s there used to be 4 on my street . Back in that day you could buy them a lot lot cheaper than todays prices, theyve gone up a lot in value . I owned all these capris from 1987 up until 1997 with the red 2.8i pet 437x being the last one This capri was origonally forest green but when i bought it it was red and was rust free and the paintwork was beutifull and shiny. I sold it to a guy in bakewell derbyshire for £800 pounds , cheap to todays prices .This car is still out there some where because the last time the car tax ran out was 1/10/99 and the tax status at present shows unlicenced not sorn as it should do . The most recent change of keeper was 21/3/2000 ,then the interesting bit , on the 2/4/2000 it had another colour change to black, but i dont now why they painted it black? Since the car was painted in 2000 to black its never been taxed or on the road , and you wouldnt pay all that money and paint it , and break it surly, because by law any cars taxed after 1998 must be sorn this car is showing unlicenced instead of sorn so was it scrapped ? or is it in a lock up somewhere and they didnt sorn it. Also the car as not been exported and the car as had no plate changes and it hasnt been written off . Someone on here might now where the car is .

Hi,
Yes, that 3.0 HVW193T looks really special. It can't have been as clean as that when it came off the production line! :)
