|Tom's first Capri
YOH 854J was my first Capri which I owned form1975 - 1981. After I bought
it I found it was first registered on 23/6/71 - my 17th birthday. I figured
this was some kind of fate - we were both street legal on the same day. YOH was
a 1600XL in garnet. The photo shows the car in its final form - pretending to
be a 3.0lt with its wing badges removed and sporting a power bulge bonnet.
Sadly YOH had to go in 1981 as I needed a reliable car and YOH had 102,000 on
the original engine and the bodywork was somewhat lacking in metal!
