Wanted to say hello I am a petrol head
Got myself
MY20 Dynamic R HSE in Seoul Pearl Silver had the ember before that, also owner of Focus RS and a Brooklands Capri

Evoque is also a working car, getting fire wood trailered back from the folks farm. so its an off roader.....not just up on the grass verge LOL

Be well

Hi and welcome. A pal of mine has a 2 owner 35k mile Brooklands. They've fairly shot up in value, like most old Fords.

Welcome 👋 I think we’ve already bumped into each other on the cruises thread.
A lovely set of cars you have there.
It will be interesting to see how you get on off-roading the Evoque. I know they are designed to do it, but I’ll bet that at least 90% of owners off roading consists of Going half way on the kerb. I know that’s probably the extent mine will.

They are brilliant off road unless you wanmt to go sideways down a rocky gully-but then why would you.
Mine was awsome.

Thanks - it was the card on my wall growing up lucky enough to get one and as I said in another post mine has just turned 13,000 miles completely standard other than a Nouvalari stainless exhaust from manifold to tail

No worries about DPF/Adblue/oil dilution back then! :LOL:

Still have an extensive library of all things Capri, and a full size dealer poster of the 280 still hangs on my office wall.(y)

Beautiful Col just love the lines of the Mk3 always did...gutted when I heard they were stopping production in favour for hot hatch's fiesta / escort. but lucky to find one many years ago and and kept it ever since working on cruise ships
for 33 years got me some nice cars but the capri will be the last to go regardless of offers

I love the evoque had the ember before this one a great comfortable ride but actually can off road unlike the other SUV wannbes out there and mine is a working car

The other thing I love about the capri you are part of the drive the vibration from the gear stick and faint smell of fumes from the engine coming from the air vents.....:LOL::LOL::LOL:

Before I started to sell off my collection I had this and had a model of each one......boys with toys huh

Be well

crazy huh since a few made good money as they were original low mileage any body now that has a capri regardless of condition thinks they have a gold mine....thats why you really have to do your homework

if want crazy here you go - granted original and ultra low mileage but thats all your buying it for if the miles go up just another nice 2.8........but £60,000 !!!! only if I won the euro millions
