The Car You Always Promised Yourself (original Advertsing Launch Slogan In 1968) — One of the most macho looking cars, very neutral handling, needs great care in the wet, but the feel good factor when driving is excellent. Production stopped in 1986 with the special edition Capri 280, after a total production run since 1968 of almost 1.9 million cars. Ford have been toying with the idea of a new model for quite a few years, but it appears to get held up at the "bean-counter" stage, PITY

Pros: Looks, timeless looks, fun to drive

Cons: that production stopped

My Retro Car Baby !!!! — brilliant performace and acceleration braking could be better but i dont care much about that really hehe. Handling is fun and lerry if u like going side ways. Duild quality is ok but you know the saying 4 a ford fix or repair daylay lol. And you just have to love the look of the thing its awesome! Cost of ownership its work but not to hard just keep it indoors if you have a garage really or buy a cover 4 it cuz this old car dosent like the rian to much lol and fun factor is an awesome car taking you back to when the cars were at there best in opinion

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: cuz it takes you back 2 the good old days and i love it

Cons: only if you cant drive then u should avoid it lol
