What did we buy
There is nothing wrong with a well rounded diet. I am not a 1 maker diehard.
I like all flava'* of cars.

My new purchase will be here Saturday

1986 Mercury Capri 5.0 5spd w/ T-Tops

Thanks man....I so miss that GP trunk. Nothing compares.
I had a Basslink T in my truck, but have soaked it 2 times with the rear slider being left open.
No boom for now...

I do miss that trunk whackin' me in the skull on windy days.
I got all concussed a few times...lol

Hey that *-10 looks like it has the same plastic intake on it that we used to make at siemens automotive in lima, Ohio.

I ended up selling the GP outright as it was in need too many things.
It was starting with the 3100 coolant leak, the rear struts were so shot along with the mounts. The gas tank was starting to leak.....it was just showing its age unfortunately.

I really do miss that car...it was sharp as hell.


It looked good for a 96' with 142k miles

WOW. Looking real sharp there! Nice work!

The only Capri I ever owned was a Ford..back in 74 Ford imported them from Merkur in Germany.
