It is the same color as my Vitesse. It is in Dutch but it is a general talk.

Loved the Capri vid too. I still think Ford should do a "classic with a twist" Capri, putting the ST 5 cyl turbo engine through a six speed gearbox driving the the rear wheels.

Gordon - would that be the same/near enough the same T5 engine as Volvo use? If so have a look at this Volvo thread for a similar idea. It's a long thread, 91 pages and counting but definitely worth a read!

It's definitely RWD and it's from the same era as the Capri although will be a bit more of a surprise! :wink:
Cheers,
Dave

Yes, the ST has the Volvo 5 cyl engine I believe. I'll have a gander at the link later.
