Here I am cruising up the M40 driving nice and slow so my mate Colin can grab this bit of video from Cliff's VW Camper! There's no truth in the rumour that I'm keeping to the left of my lane to dodge bits falling off the Camper :-)
The sharp-eyed among you will see I've removed the blower to make the car more driveable - it may go back on when I have more time to fiddle, but at the moment it's great to have a drive-anywhere car! Satin black paint is new too. Long live Mad Max and the last of the V8 Interceptors.
CULT CAR - THE FORD CAPRI
The Ford Capri is an iconic car. From its development in the late 1960s it
became hugely popular and well-loved, instantly recognisable on the streets
of 70s Britain, as much a part of that decade as kipper ties and
flared-trousers! It even became a TV star in the hands of 'The
Professionals!' Although it finally went out of production in December
1986, many of these vehicles are still in existence, lovingly cared for by
individuals and groups of enthusiasts all over the country. The Capri's
best-remembered advertising slogan was 'the car you always promised
yourself' and, in the knowledgeable company of John Hill, chairman of The
Capri Club International, we met up with some Capri owners who made that
promise come true. We take a closer look at this wonderful car and see it
in action, come rain or shine! Move over Bodie and Doyle!

Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of
filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that
you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into
reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate
Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8
and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear.
This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans,
so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from
the States to save it from the recyclers yard. Sweet vintage aluminum slot
mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in
classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!
