Keeping 'The Legend Alive' on the World Wide Web since 1995!
2016 Bodywork Restoration
D659DBJ has been owned by me now for as long as I can remember. Lately I have been enjoying driving her a lot more again and quite a bit of money has been spent on keeping her on the Road. But like all Eighties Fords, the Capri only had a designed life expectancy of around ten years. Let’s face it a lot of them also got thrashed, trashed and stolen Time starts to take its toll on virtually everything on an old car like the Capri and they are now quite a rare sight on the roads of Britain
However now that all those forty something guys are having their mid life crisis and thinking of re-living their youth a bit, Capris are more popular than ever before and prices, largely thanks to Ebay, are rising dramatically. And worse still spare parts are getting increasingly hard to find and expensive to buy.
As it is my fiftieth birthday in 2016 I have decided to treat myself and try and get the Capri properly restored. So after nearly two years of searching and waiting I have finally commissioned Quest Brothers Classic Cars based in St Ives CAMBS to do the work. They are a small family business set up by Ian and Paul Quest who have been long time classic car fans. And they are based just around the corner from where I work so I can pop in most days and take some photos!
