    Had a ride out into the Lincolnshire Wolds yesterday to pick up a load of parts for the V8. Martin as usual was very helpful, knows his stuff as well, had a chat, parted with some money and headed back to Manea Towers. Top man, top prices and goes out of his way to help, couldn't be better. Finn.

    I think we'd all be in the poop without them, long may they prosper.

    Martin has helped me out a good few times in the last 18 months.
    Great service.

    Another heads up for Martin, when I was there collecting parts Martin gave me 4 of the small plastic wheels that slot in to the window slides, I put them in my pocket, easy! By the time I got back to Manea Towers they had dissapeared, I had stopped for a burgler on the A17, must have fell out of my pocket when I pulled the huge bundle of £50 notes that I always carry. In todays post in a jiffy bag, more wheels, I now have thanks to Stuball, 2 doors that open and shut, and lock, and thanks to Martin 2 windows that go up and down! Capri people, what can I say. Finn.

    Really nice to see Martin yesterday at an event he was supporting , As usual very polite and he carries and excellent range of hard to find gear at very reasonable prices .
    where else can you get continental Mk1 over rider bumper rubbers ??
    where does he find all this Capri gear ?

    Every part I've ever gotten from Martin keeps up with the rest of the car all the way - I've never had to go back and pick one up, not once. Not from any of 3 cars. Can you beat that?

    Thanks for the support folks, it is appreciated.
    It's getting ever more difficult to supply all the parts requested but I'll carry on doing what I can.
