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.

A Striking Pre-facelift, One Owner from New Ford Capri 1600 with Custom Plan 'L' Pack. SOLD
A tremendous pre-facelift, one owner from new Ford Capri 1600 with Custom Plan 'L' Pack.
Chromed front and rear bumpers, rectangular sealed beam headlamp units with integral sidelights, chromium plated Exhaust trim, lockable fuel cap, dummy air scoops, heater/demister two speed fan, single speed windshield wipers, foot operated two jet windshield washers, padded sun visors, interior light, front package tray, interior bonnet release, front and rear ashtrays.
This stunning early Ford Capri is finished in Ford Red, (colour code BN), and has a deep glossy finish. This car stands very proud and attracts positive reactions everywhere. According to his son, the owner wanted a base 1600 for the design purity but opted for this vehicle to avoid the long waiting time! Fitted with the Custom Plan L Pack, (the exterior dress-up pack), he removed the bright metal trim and kept it boxed thus creating the look he desired! There are a few micro-blisters at the top of the passenger 'A' pillar. Repair sections have been professionally welded in the floor and inner rear wheel arches but it is structurally perfect and dry. The chrome is bright and in excellent order. The original front screen has some wiper arm markings. A stunning Capri.
The slide-mounted, adjustable, bucket-style front seats are deep wide and beautifully sprung. They are in excellent condition with no tears or markings. The driving position is low with all the instrumentation clear and operational. An additional tachometer was fitted in 1973 and is a beautiful period accessory in full working order. There are no cracks in the fragile dash top and the heater fan is functioning. The original black carpeting is a little worn in places but still very presentable. The out-of-sight 'lights on' rocker switch has been replaced and a period wooden Mountney steering wheel fitted. The original item still boxed to return to standard if required. The door cards and roof lining are all in excellent order with a few tiny nicks. Delightful, retro and comfortable.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The famous 1600 Kent engine is still fitted to this original Capri and is strong, well maintained and responsive. Offering 75 bhp and a top speed of 93mph it has a clean crisp Exhaust note and is brilliant fun. Simple mechanics and excellent parts availability ensure cost effective running costs for the novice classic car owner. The short, remote floor shift offers slick changing through the superb 4-speed all-synchromesh gearbox and the diaphragm spring clutch is light and progressive. Wonderful.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Shortly after purchase the owner invested in the now highly desirable 5 ½ X 13 Shelby Cal 500 Slot Mag Alloy Wheels. These are immaculate and the invoice in the history file from John Brown Wheels revealed these cost £80 new! Decent tyres and ample tread with strong brakes offer safe handling.
This vehicle was purchased new by George Hall on the 1st January 1970 and supplied by Ford Agents, Perry's of Southend. All the original documents are supplied with the car including the green Buff Style Log Book, Capri Owner Handbook, Capri Food Service Booklet and even the manufacturers build specification sheet! The careful owner has kept every MOT from the first in 1973! On passing away the vehicle was transferred to his son in May 2012, a Mr James Hall.
All spare keys remain present, an original Ford Capri Brochure is included in the sale and 12 Months MOT. The vehicle is tax exempt and is HPI clear.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is their description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."
