Welcome, came though Colorado Springs a couple of months ago.  If I'd known about that beauty, I'd brought it back to NC with me... :)

Jeff
Bowling Green, KY
I bought my Capri because I have always liked oddball, unique cars (fiero, Delorean, bricklin, le baron, solstice, pulsar, svx, conquest, talon, geo storm, 924, exp, Subaru  xt1).  I specifically love the wedge look of them, back seat, turbo, unique, convertible, red, only one at a car show, too young with no money when they were new but could now afford one, good deal - low mileage - auction win surprise on eBay!

I am fortunate to own my dream car, a red 1991 Dodge Stealth RT.

My dream new Capri would be similar to the Lotus Exige x Fiat 124 x Solstice with turbo, a small back seat again, and 300+ horsepower, red with a white interior.

I'm Derek from New England. I just picked up a 91 XR2. I've always wanted one and finally got the opportunity. I've owned fox body mustangs, 1g DSM's, a couple Festiva's, and my daily is a  03 Buck Regal GS with the supercharged 3800 v6. I'm looking forward to modding this XR2. Goals are a little bit more power with excellent handling.

1. Josh
2. Chicago, IL
3. I have a thing for Italian designs, and the Capri hardtop looks like someone squished a Lotus Esprit
4. Lancia Stratos or Autozam AZ-1 with a Hayabusa swap
5. If they make a new one, just make it a small, fun, economical convertible that isn't as lame as the FIAT 500c

Welcome Josh, sounds like you've got the same taste I do.  Love the Italian styling and you're the first person I've run across who loves the Lancia Stratos.  Would love the have one on the replicas for a DD when it rains.

1. John and my wife is Barbara.  I have been a member of the forum for a few years, but never posted or used it a lot until recently.   See why on #3.
2. We are originally from the Harrisburg, Pa area.  We moved to eastern NC in 1996 due to a job transfer.  We are currently in Winterville, NC.
3. I bought a 1994 Magenta Capri NA new for my wife just because she liked it.  I was OK with it, but it was her thing.  Things went pretty smooth with the Capri until 2009.  It starting having some issues, so I parked it in our garage and bought her a Mazda MX5.   The Mazda was totalled when we got sandwiched in Raleigh a few years later.   The Capri just sat in the garage until November, 2017 when I started to mess around and getting it running again.  This forum was a blessing.  That gave me the bug and I went on the search for a 1994 XR2 which I am happy to say, will be parked in my garage in February.  Now I have an obsession....bought a 93 NA for parts before Christmas and a 92 XR2 that runs good, but needs paint.
4. I have always obsessed over Healey 3000's and Jeeps, but never bought a Healy, but had a 1980 Jeep CJ7 for 20 years.  Man I miss that thing.
5. Changes that I would like is V6 and rear wheel drive.  Soft top is great.  I am retired now, so it is all about playing.

I'm Raymond from Long Island N.Y.  I recently discovered these little spitfire of a car.... A friend had one in the 80's. I just acquired my first Capri, a 1991 form an original owner  with 39k miles. She was loved and will continue to be.  I have always liked oddball, unique, unseen cars. I also have a 69 Opel GT, a 2010 BWM M6 , and a 2004 ML 430.
I say a car for each if the seasons.  Glad I found this site.

Welcome Ray, my XR2 came from Long Island to NC.  Loved the drive back thru the city on a Friday afternoon.  When you have a question, ask away, there are a lot of knowledgeable people here.
