A l-o-n-g time ago I had an even better Capri! It was the Mk I Facelift 3.0 V6 GXL. A very rare breed.
Used to be a Flamenco Red one with a vinyl roof and what made it (sneakily) different from the Mk1 was instead of having twin exhausts - one each side of the car - they were both on one side so didn't look like a V6 at first glance.
It used to go like the proverbial bat out of hades and if I dropped the clutch too quickly on pulling away, I could feel the rear suspension wind up, tramp the axle..... and then go.
I loved the car but it had two faults. On a long run, if you made a short stop, the fuel system vapour-locked and it just wouldn't start for about 10 minutes (I soon learned too fill up quickly and get going at the pumps - otherwise it was embarrassing!). The other fault was the dreaded tin-worm. Like a lot of cars (including Fords), it was prone to rot.
But I did love that car.
