1981 Ford Capri Review
Cargo Capacity:
Family Car:
Fuel Economy:
Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

Blooming Brilliant :) — Great performance. Slightly wonky and does have slightly wonky panels. Nice, retro design. Bit cheap for parts and good fuel mileage. Very fun to drive. Great steering, great for the roads around where I live. Overall, a brilliant car that should be owned by at least everyone for at least 6 months.

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

Pros: Everything. Apart from build.

Cons: Build.
