My Old Capri

I was delighted to watch the BBC's Top Gear this evening, when James May - a chap of some taste - chose a venerable Ford Capri 2.8i Injection to compete against the others.

I owned exactly the same model - and two-tone colour - in 1984. I recall the Recaro seats well. Curiously enough, these cars were the choice of several police forces in those days: our constabulary's traffic branch maintained an unmarked fleet of them. It was a powerful car in its day.

It amused me when some other motorists were wary when overtaking me in my Capri at times. I wish I could remember its registration number...
