Jon C bought his Mk1 Facelift 2.0 V4 GT in September 1996.  He wanted a classic car to tinker with in his new house which had a double garage.  He found the car locally at a rural garage.  One owner, only 36,000 miles but in need of TLC.  Purchase price was £800 and he admits having spent the last 24 years tinkering with it.  He’s taken it to Europe as well as lots of trips with the guys in the Suffolk Capri Club.  He took it back to the original owner after it was resprayed and she was delighted to see it smart again - plus confirmed the 1,500 miles per year was correct as it never left Suffolk.

Capri: the car you always promised yourself
