Think that Capri is a Porsche 911.

I think it could be a 911 too, the rear wing looks wrong for a Volvo. The second one looks more interesting, an AC 2 litre of about 1950. I wonder how old that photo is, I couldn't think of one looking fairly complete and still lying around today.

I agree with the porsche theory. Look at the LH inner wing up near the scuttle...isn't that the fuel filler neck?

912s were throw away money but 911s never have been, so my money goes on it being a 912.

quite possibly, but early 911's were horrific rusters and there are a suprising number of rotten ones lying around waiting to be spotted (as seen in PC's 'Rust In Peace' section before now)...

Mwaaahhsplurge!! AC 2-litre?? If so, I remember one of these handmade alloy beauties being totalled on the Hednesford oval a year or three back... :(

The other one is indeed a 911/912.
