1974 Ford Capri GT 2.0L overhead cam Pinto
It is a definite pleasure to own and drive
Apart from minor dents, paint chips and police attention, nothing until one day:
The water pump packed it in;
The bottom end bearings went;
The head gasket blew;
And finally the cam shaft had enough.
So it's to the drawing board to build an ultimate street car.
This is a car for serious street racers who want a powerful, fast and cheap to run car without having to invest in a V8.
Capri's are extreme fun in the wet because the back end gets out of line very easily if you nail it;
Very cheap and economical sports car to run in today's world of high petrol prices.
The car screams look at me every-time it is taken out for a drive and at least one little boy in his Japanese import tries to race you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
