This is my Capri I bought it in 1989 and drove it for years until I had kids.I stored it for a few years and started the restoration in 1994 it took me ten years to get it up and running but I did end up taking every single piece of this car apart and did all the work myself other than the machine work for the motor and I did not paint it.The theme is to look exactly like it did in 1983.The hardest part was finding 1983 ground effects.Other than the stero and tinted windows this is a correct 1983.

A beginning of a rivalry or a continuation of one that has been going on since the 60's. Big blocks versus small blocks, here we have two cars that are very similar except in their choice of engine size. Sabotage is running a 514c.i. BBF through a C6 transmission in a '83 Mercury Capri and Juiced351Stang is running 408c.i. SBF through a C4 transmission in his foxbody notchack Ford Mustang...
