1973 Ford Capri Lunch Time Restoration
My first attempt at a slide show. Pics from the last three years as we restore/rebuild a 1973 Ford Capri MK1 on our lunch hour(s) at the Eastwood Company. Many new products were developed and tested on this car. Hope to have it in paint Summer of 2014





Capri V8 Update and More Tire Abuse!
Hi! Just a short video to show some of the updates to Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri. He built a roller-cam 5.0 litre with aluminum heads and a little more cam to add to the fun. We also did the "RS" paint job to the hood and tops of the fenders and replaced the bent hood with a nice straight one. Lots of tuning and detail work has resulted in a super fun, reliable Capri that will destroy tires all day long.





Mercury Capri sales training video 1991 1992 1993 1994 Part 1
First half of product familiarization video for sales personnel for the newly-introduced 1991 Mercury Capri. Great background for Capri fans (I had a '94). Based on this video, you'd think the Capri would have sold much better! Judge the video from a 90s perspective, not today's. Ohhh, the 90s. So much color, so much hope, so much fun... :)

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. onboard race1 at 05:35 onboard race 2 at 12:14
