1974 Ford Capri Review
Tangerine Dream — It was an awesome car with a special German built 2.8L v6. $ 4 speed, sun roof, Craig car stereo, black leather interior and painted in tangerine. It glowed orange.... and there was no car in downtown Toronto that could beat me to the other side of the intersection off the red. However, no one at the dealership told me that the carb was cracked and as the gas leaked into the crankcase and watered down the old... the engine eventually seized and my tangerine dream died... bummer.
Pros: A kick ass factory package rally machine.
Cons: Have your used cars fully checked out before you buy them
