    Mk II (one of the very first), Complete rebuild from ground up and including full Zakspeed Racing arch set. This was my second Capri (I've had a few of them over the years) but it was always my favourite. Its also where the 486 in my user name comes from........
    Cool? I thought so, and still do......... :yes:

    Looks pretty cool to me. Never owned one but did own a Escort XR3 (pre injection model) and a Sierra XR4.

    Just found this advert on the Capri. Enjoy.

    A mate had a pre-injection XR3 - brilliant car & performed better than the injected version ever did (he had a few of them too).

    Indeed. Fun little cars. The main issue, which I think inflicted a lot of the 80s fast Fords, after about 5 months of ownership it started to puff blue smoke on start-up only. Clearly they had weak valve guides or stems.
