I'm in love..... with a ford! Ahhhhhhhhhh It is beautiful. I have always wanted a capri project, that is almost the exact colour I want too... your dad would be disgusted to hear that I'd do everything the same on the outside and then run white viper stripes! Probably best you dont tell him! lol

Utterly gorgeous. I always think of the Top Gear episode where they bought classic sports cars, and James May bought a Capri. The other two mocked him and his come back was simply: "Yeah, but haven't you always just wanted one?" Spot on.

Mangham, they are no longer on the car but these were originally fitted for a reason and were fitted along time before the local corsa had them basically to keep the wipers on the screen at high speeds on track etc
