    Hi All,

    Good to be in, thank you!

    I have been a Capri enthusiast sine the 1970's, as a kid I convinced my mum to buy a mk2 Stratos Silver 2.0s. TBH didn't take much convincing!

    In the 1990's I needed a car to do motorway runs, instead of getting a new car, I though a 3.0l Capri would be a lot more interesting.

    I looked high and low for a clean low mileage car, and didn't have much luck, until I joined he Capri Club International and found the X-Pack below in the classifieds. I still have the car today, it's been looked after by Tickover for many years and I am still a member of the CCI.

    I am looking forward to hearing and seeing other members stories and cars!

    Thank you,

    Chris

    This hits exactly on a problem some of us have with CCI, but I also was so glad to see someone with a positive-enough experience to bring them in here, so didn't want to discuss it. I presume one can productively be a member of both entities and stay in the proper lane at the roundabouts, should be just fine.
