The Mercury Capri is the drag car my high school is building. This is the first time it has moved under it's own power since replacing basically everything under the hood. The Mustang is a future project we are going to work on possibly when this is done. The video was taken from my iPhone so not so good quality but still...

Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann.
Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l Hubraum.
In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen 2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf.
Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad".
Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei Zakspeed.

1972 Mercury Capri V6 2600 startup ......and it's for sale !
This was my first car purchased in 1978. I drove it stock for a few years then in 1981 I did a restoration (body work, paint, suspension, engine, trans.) . I took off the stock rally wheels and bias tires and put on some aluminum slot mag wheels with radials.
I installed an ANSA dual sport Exhaust system with twin Ferrari resonator tips which improved the performance and it sounded great!
Put air shocks in the back so I could lower the rear a bit to improve handling.
I installed a high power stereo (hey it was 1981!) and this thing was powerful at that time. I made a custom speaker enclosure to fit on the parcel shelf.
I installed a set of aluminum rear window louvers and that set off the styling nicely...at least I liked them !
The car handled great, the V6 and 4 speed made for a really quick and nimble sports car. Plus it was very reliable for a 70's import. The only issues I had was loosing a sync gear in the trans and it liked to go through front end bushings..
The interior is in great shape but the dash is cracked. Actually I think they all cracked after 4-5 years unless the car never saw the sunshine!
The body has some spots coming through but it's not in terrible shape. The entire underside was undercoated.
Normal maintenance was performed over the years but along with belts, hoses, etc... etc will need the front calipers rebuilt as the are sticking. Otherwise it runs and drives good.
This is for sale if anyone is interested.

OnTrack Karting Super Kart Run, 9-7-12
Its a month old, and the camera angle is a little low but ill upload anyways. The track is OnTrack Karting, an indoor track in Wallingford, CT. The kart is one of the super karts that they have there with 9hp racing against the regular adult karts which are 6.5hp. This was only my 3rd of 4th time out in the 9hp karts and I'm way too light so i think my best time was about 40.3 seconds to lap the track.
