We sold our beloved 2.8i Capri on Ebay last month and its taken the guy a month to organise its collection as she's being shipped to Ireland.
Well last night was the night, at 9pm what i thought was gonna be a single car flat bed turned out to be a ruddy great 11 car transporter :lolsign:


Last car on the bottom row she was



As befitting the old girl we lent her Magics battery and she growled up under her own steam, he was driving down to Manchester last night, then Liveppol and Ireland tomorrow.



Have a good trip Voodoo, you may be gone but you'll never be forgotten hunny.:(

the UK is one of the cheapest places to buy second hand cars in Europe, the rest of Europe have the problem of our cars been RHD though, Ireland also drives on the left so doesnt have this problem, ive sold a few cars to people who have exported them back to europe to break for parts as our cars are a lot cheaper to buy than theirs.

Well long and short of it is, Adam (hubby) isnt too well at the moment, and we had two Capris (others a 2.0S and in very good nick) and also the Dodge Ram (needs an engine overhaul), the 2.8i was to go heavily modified but his health wont allow, so we sold her and bought a Ford Focus that at least he wont be mechanicing on every couple of months like the Cappas and the Dodge needs.
Plus our drive was heaving, 4 cars and 2 bikes.:(


Ah Timbo me old mucker, just twigged who you are!!!!! hehehehe
