Are you in the market for a Capri with a proper engine, Jason? :lol:

Rob's Capri looks great and I think he's got the price spot on.
The buyer will be getting a car they will be very happy with.

Good spot!
That's a nice quick profit if it sells for the asking price !

They have only had the car 5 months, and I can't remember the previous asking price :headscratch:

I think it sold for 14-14½K, something like that.

:cheers: Andrew,
I should have bought it then :lol:

Doesn't take too long for the prices to be jacked up does it :?

A mate was telling me he reluctantly sold his restored Series 2 Escort RS Turbo to a car dealer mate who put £5k on it straight away! He still has it and reckons he is putting another £2k on it soon! There really is no hope of sensible pricing with that sort of greedy :wank:

I think Rob left his Charlotte church signed cassette in the car so that’s why it might be up for more also the advert says it’s nimbus grey ?
Prices are on the up still but I wonder for how long as us old ones remember when inflection was high in the 90s :beer: or really old ones 1930s :lol: :lol:

It's Mercury Grey mine is Nimbus Grey and quite different.

Lots of cars are hanging around dealers, and some you can find the old adverts and the price increase is eye watering.

As always, only worth what someone will pay :)

What make of exhausts are they, with that unusual square section tailpipe?

From Robs ad is says full stainless steel exhaust, so probably custom made. Personally I would change the tips to round.

Funny as when I was parked next to rob in some light our cars looked the same colour but then in different light they looked like different colours . I do like nimbus grey as it’s a little lighter then mine .
Still mad prices what I thought we would not see . But as you say stock is hanging around longer …

Don’t fancy the square tips then Andrew ?

I was a PG fan for years, but recently some of the bags are breaking letting the leaves into the cup, so we have changed to Tetley now :cool:
