    Hello again fellow members
    My wife & I went to Wales yesterday for a day trip. I know, maybe a long way to go for a day trip, but we fancied a change of scenery.
    Arrived in Lake Vyrnwy, onto Lake Bala before heading for a final stop in Porthmadog.
    Had a pic-nic on the beach for an hour or so. Then on the way back to the car we spotted this.
    In pretty good condition, a 1978 S reg 2.0 GL.
    Looked original.
    Sports wheels.
    2 clock dash.
    Sunroof.
    Chocks behind the 2 rear wheels, maybe the hand brake doesn't work.
    I wish I found out who owned this lovely rare car.

    If I spot something like that I normally put a note behind one of the windscreen wipers. If they want contact, they will contact you. Finn.

    Yeah maybe I should have put a note on the screen. I asked my wife if she had a pen & piece of paper, but she said "we've got enough cars at home!"
    It is a bike in the back.
    It was a very clean Capri, perhaps a old person, who's had it from new.

    I think, looking at the back bumper, whoever owns it, needs to fit some reversing sensors or it's perhaps damage from a previous owner.
