    Hi

    I thought I’d introduce myself on the forum.

    Finally got myself a Capri 2.8i, wanted one for many years and stumbled across this car.

    55k mile 3 previous owners very happy with the car.

    Welcome, looks a very clean car, not everyone's favourite, but I like them and you do and that's what matters.

    Congrats on finding your car. It's great to see that someone's visits here have helped it happen. Low miles, well kept, you could outdrive a lot of us. :)
