    This has been parked up not far from me foe ages

    Was taking my daily for a little drive as it hadn't been used for a bit, so thought I'd go see if it was still there

    It's sitting on alley cats and it's got a duck tail spoiler.

    Looks brilliant.

    I'm going to go when I'm driving my capri again

    Might have more chance if he sees I'm a capri man.

    I know it's a 2 litre but looks a bit broadspeedish, could be a good little rescue.

    Seems a shame about them and the other old car on haunch lane that hadn't moved in years, (don't know if it's still there) when there are people like us (idiots mainly lol) who would of bought them when they first went past saving and saved them anyways but they just sit there and die

    The owner probably has all the best intentions, and if it was me, I'd find it hard to let go of it!

    It should be garaged at least, it does have Broadspeed looks and someone will try and thieve it, like other Capris left in driveways.
