    Hi Everyone. I'm Mike from East Lothian, Scotland. Always wanted a Capri since driving my mates back in the 80's. Finally picked up a 2.8i special just before Christmas and now starting to tinker around with it so will probably be posting some questions soon. Already found some great tips and advice on here. Cheers

    At long last, welcome. Waiting so long for a Capri will make it more special, as it should be. And every Capri in Scotland known to us is in dependable daily driver condition. It's a priority. :)

    Welcome in Mike, East Lothian is a nice area, all the better for being outside Edinburgh !!
    I did a lot of work all over East Lothian with my previous employer - now retired - and found it a nice place to tour ..
    am based in Lanark myself .. whereabouts in E. Lothian is you based ..
    ignore that Cali/OR galoot.. that's him popping at mine for being 'a bit undressed' for a while .. honest it will get back out ASAP ..

    Hope you're in touch with Capri Club Scotland - really good, relatively local source of help
