Damn, that's clean. Got any more pictures? Like, of the front? I might have to steal that stripe idea.  :P

That is really cool. Love the spoiler, similar to one I have.

Ohhh, I didn't even notice the spoiler. Who makes it/where can I get one?

Couple questions, cuz I'm nosey like that. What make/model/size wheel and tire are those? They look sick. Also, are the stripes painted on, or is that vinyl? I'm realllllllly diggin' the orange and black on the Capri, and I usually HATE orange cars.

What kind of shape are the drivetrain and suspension/steering/braking systems in? You definitely got a hell of a nice car there man, welcome to the forum.

Just bought the car, not sure where to pick up a spoiler like that. That stripe is painted on, it is not a vinyl sticker, 16" diameter wheels, not positive on the brand. Will post the tire size later.

That is a great looking Capri! I've admired it a lot when the previous owner would post pictures of it on FB. Enjoy.

Keith did a wonderful paint job on the car, no doubt about it. The 07, 08, 09 Mustang Grabber Orange is incredible.

As far as I can tell, no one is making spoilers for Capri's anymore, you just have to get lucky.

The wheels are by ACR Motorsport, from what I can tell, no longer manufactured. Keith put those on that car approximately 10 years ago now.
