I attended a local carshow last Thursday.
And a mates dad had this album with him.

Inside that album there was a picture of me and my 79' 3.0S taken in 96'or 97'.
I can vaguely remember the picture being taken, but had noe clue who had it.

Some pounds ago lolol

Sorry for the bad quality as it's a picture of a picture..

A car like that could make a nut out of a guy, but it leans like your arm is real heavy. :stunned:

You look about 8 ft 10! I suspect your Capri may have been lowered a tad. Finn.

I'm only 6 ft 0.44, so yes it was lowered a tad :lol:
-2" 190lbs springs for 2l V6 ment it was basicly riding on the bumpstops lolol
In the rear it had single leafs and 205/60-13 Cooper tires on 8" Slot Mags.

To bad I could not afford the rust repairs (big flange after the front strut top reinforcement plate and loose front valance), because it had minimal rust issues.
Floors, sills, doors, rear, doors, bonnet, bulkhead etc were all good.
When I ripped it apart to scrap it, the floor were mint, so was the inside the booth, tubs to body etc.
Frame rails were mint too.

LSD diff was fun during the winter, and front spoiler acted like a snow plow, handy when the roads weren't plowed :lol: :lol:
