    Now that's a shame that has been allowed to happen to a rare car.

    When I moved in 1995, this car was just round the corner, and the owner said he was going to completely restore it. That was 23 years ago, and it has never moved or had anything done. The driveway was clear as well !!
    Its a 2.8 Laser Capri. Its now just rusting away.

    Blimey thats a real shame. Worth some money now in good order.
    As for the Capri, I think we can safely say it's done.

    Just as well as you would have your work cut out for the red one trying to put that back together would take a bit of time money and dedication I think.

    Used to work on them all the time when I served my time at Fords. The police used to bring them in for warranty work. They were supposed to remove all lights etc but they just pulled the fuses. First thing was fuses back in and a test drive testing lights and sirens. It was funny watching everyone panic.

    Can you get done for impersonating a policeman ??
