New Capri

Just read this on the Pistonheads front page. It's not until 2012 so it gives you time to save up ;)

Thanks Dave!

I spotted this story on Pistonheads too, but thought it might be rude of me to break the Capri story!!

I reckon Stokes can have the new Scirocco (as a VW fan), Powell can have the new Manta (when GM wakes from its slumber and catches onto the 80s revival thing) and I can have the new Capri.

Then we can have races.

Wacky races.

I really hope BL get bought by some millionare Russian for £0.45p and remake the Metro GTI to be truthfull. I'd buy one but it would have to be in white.

They could make it out of all those old bits they have left from the austin days (oh wait they did that for years anyway).

failing that i reckon a 200bhp alegro would do the trick.

Oh and pretty much everything like that went to China about 18 months ago

[From the Pistonheads article] "I stand corrected by a nameless BL pervert"

Haha! Stokes, you have been corrected by a named BL pervert! Mr Martin Gareth Powell Esq.

Or are you both BLHydroelasticophiles (I looked up BL pervert in a medical dictionary and that is the latin name for the condition)?

Dunno, I actually have a genuine Hydrolastic pump though.

Does this make me a pervert?

rover

Without a doubt.

I hear the Chinese have a herbal remedy for BLHydroelasticophilia though.

Right up your alley, and just flown it's MOT by the seem of it. Just a shame she isn't an auto really, that would top it off!

its not white

:)

No, it's GOLD! ;-)

The winning colour.

The colour of the gods.

The colour in the bog the morning after a good curry.

1300 auto Metros are like go karts

That one is right up your street Nick. It has central locking and electric windows!

"The cylinder head gasket has been changed and the cylinder head was skimmed at the same time."

Hmmm. Skimmed a cast iron head.....thats a bit unusual ;) Hope they fitted a gasket with lower clearance after.

wonder if they used a corn flake packet.. haha
