Restoration Show at NEC Birmingham March 31st - April 2nd

Good show with lots of interesting displays as well as our own display.
see  the News page for Capri  pictures and story

                                         Old Spice


The Capri I won in a raffle.      Pre facelift 1600XL 11 previous owners .

The Capri had been used in a promotion around the country to promote men's Old Spice products and used the slogan Be a Man Man.

         There were three Capri's used in the promotion this was the only Mk1 Capri used. The cars travelled around the UK and Europe,  I am told that the Mk1 was the only one not to break down.

                       The car had travelled around the country, often girls were photographed sitting on the bonnet or/and on the roof (see U Tube) so a few dents and dings were added en route.
It is in a bit of a sorry state now.  We are looking at getting it restored or maybe sell it on for restoration.
