BIG BIG Fan of Kev's Capri ... and whilst we're sort of straying into Custom Car territory, there was a bright green pop with a Carson top (I believe) around the same time that I was kind of obsessed with as a kid.
Would love to see a picture of the Amazon that Dez is talking about.
I haven't got much to add other than we really need to start building stuff like this again in this country. I love the fact that a lot of the cars that were used were the bangers of their day. Would be interesting to see people apply that way of thinking to the stuff you can pick up for peanuts now.
Satisfaction is currently in my mate's garage undergoing a full restoration - to it's Street Machine condition rather than it's original brand new condition. Interestingly, as it was originally a 2000GT it would probably cost less to do and be worth more when finished if it was restored to factory.
Is Satisfaction likely to be finished by next year?
Hopefully, unfortunately it required a lot more work (and cash) than at first thought. Famous old custom or not, the rust doesn't care and underneath the paint (and filler, lots of filler) it's still a forty year old Cortina. 1970's modification standards leave a bit to be desired too. Why weld when 50 million pop rivets and a tub of body filler will do? When it does emerge it will be under the power of a blown Chevy V8.
