My restored 1990 turbo Capri
« on: June 17, 2019, 08:04:11 AM »

Hi guys, first time poster here. I have bought a restored 1990 Capri to replace my Capri I bought last year which was hail damaged 3 days after it was delivered via the transport company. I drove it around last year during the summer even with the damage and realised I liked it so much, that when I found this was one, I knew it would be worth it.

So with that, enjoy.

I would like to remove those wheels, and put these on.

Super nice car, one to be proud of.  Agree with your choice of wheels to, maybe with black centers.

Very nice. I've always liked the look of the Clubsprint kit.
