    My step dad had a petrol station on the southchurch road in Southend, numerous fords I can remember, Norman Wilding in "pieces of eight" was a frequent user......He would be with a massive v8 and guaranteed burnouts! Savage and lotus cortina, anglia and escorts........The "white heat" capri.......cruise nights were always interesting! Can't think how all of those memories got me interested in ford's. ..........and the experience of driving my stepdad's daytona yellow 3000e mk1 capri as a seventeen year old is something I can always remember so easily! Happy days

  3. Capri MK1 3000E for sale.

    Well if I can speak from experience. ...........keep her if you can, because once you have sold her you will never be able to replace her! And when selling be careful........They always seem to want something for nothing, and tell you it's going to be their personal car, then low and behold it's up on a for court somewhere. I love your capri........keep her if you can. Pete (ex rs2000 owner!)
