Obvious what it's meant to be, the likeness is uncanny.

Oh hmmmmm yeah.
Can't decide which is worse tbh...
I can, however, tell you in which one I’d be confident at going over 50mph!
mind you once you reach 200 all bets are off... hehe

Ouch!

Sure, but the body panels are all still where they should be, at least until impact.

Capri purist, I assume
I didn't realise the extent of the work to be fair.
To be honest I always get the impression very very few people seem to appreciate the work that goes into a lot of custom/modified cars that have featured in topics like this.

Not directed at you Adz but in general I find t's a bit sad when someone who has never changed a wheel takes the mick out of someone who has hundreds of skilled man hours in their project.
Not necessarily. You can put as many hours as you like into something, if someone thinks it's awful they're entitled to say so - however skilled and dedicated you might be. It's opinion on someone's taste, not their skill.

Do you need to be able to cook the meal yourself before being allowed an opinion on how it tastes? Slippery slope.
Not quite. I laughed at someone's fiesta project thread here, saying i appreciated the time and effort, but it was really not to my taste. And got banned for a month. Apparently I upset the sensitive owner. I expect to be banned again, for daring to mention it. Anyway that Capri is the dream car, that I'd love to.own.

Seems like a good start for a re-shell with an N54. biggrin

At least it's not telephone-number pricing because mods

Webber flipped in practice, and then teammate Peter Dumbreck flipped in the race. There were other GT1 flipping incidents in other races in that period as well.

I found this on eBay the other day, 30th Anniversary edition with some added graphics. They'd be the first thing to go! Even the roof didn't escape them!

This surely can't be real!

I can only hope that this was some sort of prank on a work colleague!
