    Hi guys,

    just joined the forum and have been searching for a good capri but on a budget, so its a hard job and a lot of rubbish out there. Have a few cars in my collection to date, and have sold a few as well. So hopefully a member may have a good solid car for sale at a good price and contact me. Current toys are

    1888 Toyota MR2 mk1b restored and mint
    1988 Ford escort xr3i. mercury grey 1 owner from new, full history with 66k miles mint condition
    1989 Fiat coupe 20l 20v turbo, tidy needs a dent removed from the quarter panel but otherwise tidy
    1996 Nissan 300ZX natural aspirated long wheel base in A1 condition

    All mot'd and classic insured.

    So really need another blue oval

    Anyone with one for sale as stated, please get in touch

    cheers and hopefully I'll have one by the end of sept.

    thanks to all

    Derek

    Welcome Derek :thumbup1:

    Nice collection of cars you have there. Are you looking for something to restore or already done?

    As you say it's hard to come by decent motors these days but they do crop up from time to time. Good luck with your search :thumbup1:

    Welcome to CP! Guessing you already know at least one of our members close to you? There's a strong contingent there that should be of good help to you, and when you find your car, they'll show us pics of it! :thumbup1:

    Derek, check the classifieds on here, its our club website!

    http://www.capriclubni.com/classifieds.html

    Theres three on it at the moment, all in Northern Ireland!

    Theres a few on DoneDeal also, I was looking just today for a wee nosey myself :)

    We have a run on on sunday, meeting at Junction One at 10-10:30, and heading up the north coast for a good long final blow out.

    Im only about an hour up the road in Portadown, If you need anything, or one looked at near me let me know!

    Your best bet would be to ring Alan Gourley off the above website, he is the club chairman and will maybe know of a few for sale.

    All the best!

    Kris

    Don't know it Derek but from the description I suspect that the bodywork on it when looked at closely will require a bit more than some TLC.

    The classified ads on here may be of interest...do you like turbos? ;)

    new to capri seen so know nowt about them. Turbo's are nice and really helps a car in my opinion if they are allowed to heat and cool correctly

    Going to have a look at the classifieds here as normally forum members look after their cars in my experience

    [​IMG] Derek, you won't have any problems on here all can be solved by our resident experts, good luck finding your cappa, as said look on for sale, coming from enthusiasts they will be better looked after and cheaper than dealers

    Hi guys, bought a 1/6 laser 85 on a c plate. a few issues that the previous owner forgot to tell me but that's in hand now and let the legal team do their job. It needs quite a bit of work so will have your heads turned lol.

    Just got my first job ready for the weekend to replace the cracked dash and a local guy had a mint grey one and I bought it of him, so that the dash done.

    Just to get a good drivers seat in the standard laser cloth and do the bodywork,
