Ex-pat returns from Aus.

Recommended Posts

Moved back to the UK after living in Australia for near on 40 years....Great place but new opportunities brought me back and loving the "improved" weather that climate change has brought with it.

Managed to ship one on my collection out with me so far, my Aussie GT V6 Capri.

Can't wait to get it out again as it's been laid up in storage since 2015. Re-commissioned before shipping it out with a test run of 950 miles to Canberra from Melbourne and back before 5 months in a boat and garage waiting for the UK registration process.

Will be out for the Classic Ford Show in June so come over and say G'day.

Nice, who will you be showing it with at Classic Ford Show? Plenty of space on our stand.

Wow, not a move that most of us Brits can understand, but welcome back. What other goodies have you got to bring over then?

I'm just going to turn up, not a big club person anymore as too many pedantic people telling me what's wrong with my car.

Most brits actually come back eventually when they realise it's not much like Neighbours and Home and Away.

I've got another 6 cars over there, Escorts Etc. Interested?

They’re usually the people who’ve just turned up in their company Skoda and couldn’t fit a light bulb bulb never mind produce car.

Nothing you can do about them.....as I have found out over the last 12 months!! They'll always be about and always have an opinion. But its just their opinion and I can bet you pound to a penny you'll get way more people admiring your car....whether built or bought!!
Bring the Capri to CF and put it on the OSF stand with the rest of us.
Just my opinion!!!

Always interested to hear what cars people have so I can dream that they are mine!

Very nice mate, as others have said - stuff people and their opinions, most who walk around old cars picking them apart don't actually have one of their own, mostly jealousy. The OSF mob are pretty cool, not a lot of snobbery here.

Cracking choice of old Ford, do love a Capri.....:mrgreen:
