1984 Ford Capri 1.6LS Modified to 2.0i from UK and Ireland
Bang for Buck the best there is!
Usual teething troubles when trying to fit an engine into a car that wasnt designed for it.
Nothing goes wrong that hasn't been altered!
This car is the most fun I have owned, and though being constantly modified, it remains usable as a daily driver. 2.1 injection engine being built in garage, to replace my tired 2.0 injection in the car.
Don't let anyone tell you different, Capri's CAN Handle. They were not too stable from the factory, but a few simple alterations lets them out to their full potential. Can keep up with modern hot hatches in the corners all day long without breaking a sweat.
Only time a Capri will lose out to cars like that is in the wet, but that is when you can have some real fun.
Old, Dated, but brilliant fun, something you can't buy in the showrooms for less than £40k.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
