A Glorious Classic With Plenty Of History But Only Die Hard Fans Need Get One. — Its a 2.8i Brooklands V6. Acceleration 0-60 is 7.26 seconds Top Speed 140mph In serious need of repair. Its a minted MKIII shell. Its a monster to drive being RWD but if you look after it it will look after you!

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

Pros: It's a real head turner

Cons: Constantly in need of repairs

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

Pros: oversteer

Cons: understeer

Ford Capri — Still quick off the mark for a 25 year old car!!! Good for drifting / sidewais action!!!!Still relativley cheap to run and insure. Easy to fix .Iconic styling. Nice sound from the v6 engine.Lots of enthusiast clubs all over the country for these cars. They brought back the Mustang.... Why not the CAPRI !!!

Pros: Good fun cheap classic car

Cons: Some parts can be hard to find

Great Car And A True Classic! — Bought this car in 1998 and had it for 8 years and the original engine and transmission were ok but not refined and did not have the most ideal torque/rpm match. I swapped engines with another ford and also used its tranny and it made the car very pleasant to drive,good overall torque and lots of power. Good gas mileage as well! The car was a lot of fun to drive a real head turner with its bright orange "seventies" paint job.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Loved it!

Cons: Fighting the never ending rust battle
