i loved my capri despite the one i had was only the 1.6 and a bit of a nail.Couldnt afford the insurance on a good one back in those days.Had a 'T' reg with the square lights (was that the mk2???)

I think the Manta GTJ i had later was better looking though.(fugazi sits and waits for the barrage of abuse from the capri fans :scared )

Old Capri was OK, Preferred the Manta!

However...

The New Capri will be with us sometime (quite) soon!

WOOOOOO!!!

Sorry, it's a nice looking bubble, but it hasn't got the character of the Capri that made it so universally loved/hated ............

i like the new capri, but like the scirocco, how the hell can they call that a coupe, when its near straight down rear end and van high roof line. its just another sleek styled hatchback.

i have owned two capris in my time and as much as i loved them at the time, and a childhood dream of owning a Brooklands, unless the big lotto win came my way, i much prefer a modern and more comfortable car nowadays
