Mine was metallic purple. Beat that. :wink:
Miami blue with a black vinyl roof! 2 x litre GT Coupe!
Similar to this? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=miami ... IYfEhnBITM:
About right, but a coupe! Ergonomically designed interior with Recaro seats and angled instrumentation which was very advanced for its day! Quite fast too, but not by today's standards although I got 120 MPH out of it on the A3 Thursley bypass once! Never again!😱😱

This year its 50 years since the Mark1 Capri was launched.

Another classic car which was available to just about anyone who wanted one with a low spec budget 1.3ltr engine car that could be overtaken by a milk float but still looked exactly the same as the top of the range 3.0ltr. A 17 year old could afford to buy, run and insure a used one as a first car while still having a car that on looks was sporty.

Just had a quick look what they are going for now. £17500 for a sorted 2L S Mk2, I think I paid £150 for mine 😂

Yep, lot of money for old 70’s fords.
So tempted to invest.
Maybe i’ll put my Golden Ticket win money towards one.

I can't recall a thread begin to go away from the subject matter at such an early stage (3rd post, take a bow, Fuggletim) and then carry on in that direction, leaving said subject matter trailing in its wake. 😆

They do indeed Terry, it’s just a shame there’s a lot of dodgy people driving around thinking they’re Lewis Hamilton or on something!

If you want a sport better than super bowl and I should think there are 100s the next best thing to Soccer ( football) is Aussie Rules Football. When a player goes down hurt he is hurt and most games are not over until the final siren. If you get a chance watch the 2018 Grand Final, West Coast Eagles V Collingwood

I think they were sent to Africa or India 🇮🇳 or something like that, I often used mine to get to brookwood station if I was in a rush before a home game, very handy!
