    Well I do. In fact I have a few boxes now if you're coming along to Silverstone Classic, Dunton or Warley. I'll be there like a market trader shelling them out.

    Who's got a copy here - what do you think?

    Hi Steve, yes, bought mine from you at the Warley show last week.

    Had a quick look through and it looks incredibly detailed with some superb images covering the whole 1969 - 1986 range.

    Looking forward to sitting down and reading in more detail.

    Jerry.

    I'm assuming you mean the difference between The Cars You Always Promised Yourself and Capri 50 rather than their respective Standard and Collector's Edition? The first is a 160,000-word book that covers Ford through the lends of its coupes of which roughly 55% is about the Capri. It has three times as many words as Capri 50 which is a more visual book and intended as a sister book to the first with under 5% overlap. It's a vibrant look at the most collectible Capris, teed off by the design brief for each model with interviews with the men the designed, made and marketed the car. A comparison here https://www.stevesaxty.com/book-comparison
