Not impressed with the move to National Geographic, too many adverts. If this is the start of things to come I think I will be giving it a miss. Have got it on series record so will save final judgement after the next one. Stunning Capri, and superb expertise, it just shows how many sheep there are in Wolfs clothing. Didn't fool Mr Wood for a moment. Finn.

well presented decent balance of tech and passion for doing the best for the car and owner . saw this one in the flesh and it looks pretty but its bitch to start !
no choke and no vac line on the dizzy to carb!
But its been tweaked perfectly once if hits the sweet spot
key no gas and it fires ... lumpy and a minute later nice even idle
Not a practical daily driver but a lovely show mobile and ..another potential bag of bits saved from oblivion
Now out on the scene !

It might have had an auto choke? engine started to run away with itself, when blipped the throttle she settled down to a nice rumble, lovely car, had a sit in it, nice owners, hope to see it again!Posted Image

I watched that episode on Youtube last night, I really like it!

And like the tall man said, it's hard to belive after all these episodes, it would take this long before they finally did a Capri.

I really like that engine and those seats.

Finally a tv programe that that don't f... up cars.
Car SOS have long been a favorite of mine, some of the other ones are rubbish in comparison.

That episode is on telly over here the 31th May, will watch it that time around too :headbang::
