Flying under every radar..
The 1989-1992 Ford Capri - A 323/Laser based 4-seater FWD convertible, predominatly made for export to the US as the Mercury Capri.
Often its the a later Barchetta/XR2/Clubsprint version - one that would initially seem more special than the regular early model, but I like them like this.. the original design so to speak.
I often seem these with the optional hardtop, which I then usually mistake for an AW11 from a distance!
Tidy and original example overall, which other than the occasional older modified versions, seems to be the case for most. For cars that never become particularly fashionable to modify (or as first cars, etc), the majority survive well.
The Capri is definitely miles down the list of make/models I'd want to own (and its a huge list!), but adds colour to the automotive landscape nonetheless!
