    With the forum being updated why don't we have a role call of who we are and what Capri(s) we have? I'll start us off...

    Name: Craig
    Area: Shropshire, UK
    Capri: 2.8i Project. Sat for years but a new storage unit over the next few weeks means more space, electric and hopefully more motivation to get it sorted.

    Lets see yours :)

    Name: Will
    Area: Surrey
    Car: Laser 2.0 with YB Cosworth conversion. I believe the car had been off the road for quite some time before my recent purchase. I would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about the history of this car. I have some work to do to get it up to scratch but its back on the road with a fresh MOT.

    Car: 78' 2.3S (2.0S V6 from factory). Bought it in 2012 in Lithauen and improoved it over the spring and summer.
    Tore it apart the next winter and it was in worse state than it looked at first glance,
    Due CFS and other illnesses progress have been really slow to no progress at all.
    But I still hope one day I will drive it again!

    Hi, I'm still knocking about. I pop in here from time to time and its nice to see some familiar names still active on the forum.
    My Capri has been laid up for the past four years but hopefully with a bit of work around April 2019 it will be on the road for next year.
    I bought my Capri in 1990 when it was four years old and over the intervening 28 years its been registered for road use for about 6 of them. It's always been garaged and still in good nick and apart from turning the engine over a couple of times a week thats it. I'm having the wheels refurbished soon and it's still on its original paint and panels with 48000 miles on the clock. I see that values have went mental over the last few years, nice to see that the are still as popular as they were in the 70s and 80s.
    Cheers.

    Capri: Mk1 Cologne V4 1700 GT. The car had 5 owners, and is in a dreadfull state. It's a very intensive restoration all done by myself in my spare time, so I hope to finish it somewhere in 2021.

    Car was recently bought from a guy in Aberdeen who had spent 2 years putting it back on the road. Unfortunately I don’t have any history with the car but it spent a lot of years in North Wales. If anyone recognises the plate it would be great to hear from you.
