    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,
