    No, but it floats my boat, so to speak.

    Can I ask what you mean?

    I saw the car on eBay and ask if anybody knows the car, Out of interest.
    The pretty picture isn't myself trying to prove ownership, that being the reason I didn't post an owner's post.

    Just bought the green Capri pictured, I've been looking for another since selling my last MK1 to my uncle, over 12month back.
    It needs tidying up a little but that's part of the fun.

    Just need to arrange getting it home.

    Anyone on here transport cars?

    You might need to let us know where the car is and where you need to get it to, that way if there is someone local who can help they can let you know;)Does it have MOT etc or definitely trailer only?

    Pickup and delivery all sorted now, A friend of mine had used a company local to him in the past and after contacting them last night, they were available for this weekend.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Bringing a Capri home for the first time is one of those things, you'll always remember where you were when it happened. ;)

    What a long day, 7 hour round trip ( with a few stops ), to get the Capri to its new home.
    I don't think I've stopped smiling all day.

    Glad to hear it, though looking at the time you posted that message, im thinking you're probably still asleep!:D
    You will have to get a few photos up once you've had time to give it a look over, im assuming a thread will be starting in the members cars section?
