South Florida is hosting another Capri gathering.
« on: February 19, 2015, 10:42:32 PM »


The place to be Saturday, April 11, 2015, is Sebring Florida, home of the Sebring International Raceway.  All 91 to 94 Capris, including ugly daily drivers to pristine show cars, their drivers, and passengers are invited to come and share in the fun.  We’re seeing if we can have as good a turnout as in 2011...

No trophies, free t-shirts, no fees...

Show up Saturday morning, 10am at “Howies Lorida ranch &  Capri Hideaway  & resting place for grazing Capri's”, just a stones throw from Sebring.  We will play games, lunch at a restaurant nearby, have a short rally drive, and wind up at historic downtown Sebring about 5pm at the Sebring Classic Car Show.  We will have a street reserved just for Capris, North Commerce Avenue, a street off the downtown circle. Ogle all the nice classic cars, eat some food, hang there until 8pm.

If that’s enough fun, then see you later and drive careful on your way home. 

If not, then stay over and go to the Sebring International Raceway on Sunday, where we’ve obtained permission to take some laps in our cars on the 3.7 mile track.  www.sebringraceway.com

Meet early, mingle with the exotic cars in the club that has rented the raceway for the day.  If you can stand watching Corvettes, Porsches, Jaguars, and their drivers trying to get the lowest lap time, then you’ll like this day.

We’ll hit the track at about 12:45, no racing, just cruising and smiling.  Have lunch at the
track, with more Capri talk!

Show up Saturday, Sunday, or both days.  Lots of motels in the area if you want to stay over.

As with all Florida Capri meets, T-shirts are free to drivers and passengers.

Please register so we can get a car count (to make sure our reserved street is big enough) and t-shirt quantity.  Email to sebring2015@yahoo.com with questions and registration requests.

It’s gonna be fun!!!   Chris

It is -12 here this morning. Coldest I've ever seen it. Florida sounds great right about now.

James, there is no official organization of capris in Florida.  There isn't much to host a small get together.... pick a date, time and place you will be somewhere, and I'll help pass the word.  Last year at Sebring on the track was fun, but an afternoon at a park, with lunch at a restaurant afterwards works fine, we did something like several years ago...

I've only seen 1 other capri on the road here in Miami, I would be up for a meet.  Would like to attend the one in Ill. this year as I am from there, but she definitely isn't ready for that drive.  Mine is not pretty yet she is still a work in progress, but it would be nice to meet other owners in the area.

I'm trying to do everything I can on mine but with limited tools, money and knowledge. I really want to maximize the life of the car because I'd hate to see it die. I'm located in Charlotte county right below Sarasota county. I'm down to meet up sometime. Maybe I could learn something new about the Capri!
