why was it parked up and just left ?
He had other projects
Rs500, wide body Rs500, a Full reshell on a 280
He openly admits that I was supposed to be rebuilt that winter to a higher spec, more powerful setup and he never got round to it
Some serious hours going in to it
6months on the original build, 4 years on the rebuild
Few rebuild pics from last year
2 sets made, one subtle, one that's totally in your face
Bruntingthorpe run, early 2000s
good to see all the work going into it
I've gone through my CCI Magazine collection, and as I remembered it was featured in the August 2002 CCI magazine
Stunning work and good to see it soon up and running again
She was also featured in June 1995 by CCI
twice in three years
I joined CCI in 96' so that was the first time I saw it.

excellent series of pictures Lee ...
me being a retired auld fart now, I have taken the liberty of changing the thumbnails up to full image for you ..
the first batch will not convert straight away due to the image size, no worries I will get that sorted for you .. and they will soon be all on show..
Excellent thread Lee, and many thanks for considering the forum for the build thread as you have just done..
Doh, didn't realise it was a Cossie, just gets better!!!

but the build in general, really rather well done.. am extremely impressed by the grafting of a Sierra front rail system onto the Capri tub ..
Thanks Lee for putting these up so far, and please let us know how the build progresses into its next phase ..
Awesome thread, really enjoyed it. Would love tae see that car in the flesh some day!

Rusty installed the N2O in 2001 to help it creep towards late 11seconds on the strip
That is a very impressive car
Why was it left in his garden?

This one of the best examples of keeping any Capri at its intended life. But especially this Capri. World class. What did you use to get it so clean?
(I got mine almost that clean last week. By the time I got the camera, there was dust from the air settled all over it.)

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that that I have to inform you of the passing of a great and kind man , Peter 'Rusty' Kennedy.
Rusty was a legend in the drag racing scene all through the 90s & 00s, racing his hand built capris at York & Santa Pod and always coming home with a pile of trophies. He was a god on the spanners and built many cars, some of them for his followers on here.
Rusty will never be forgotten and will be in the hearts of his family and friends forever
Such sad news and heart goes out to family and friends.
Remember seeing this car and that is what made me go cosworth in mine although 2wd for me.
Sad news, gone but the legend lives on
Blessings go out to all his family and friends BB
Sad to hear this.
