  1. Funnily enough, I spotted a Croma on the road here in NZ just the other week. Had a drive of its Italian cousin the other week
  2. There are quite a few of those Blades knocking about. Would have thought they would be a wee bit nose heavy
  3. I have had the same issue with my 3.0S Capri for the last few years. Leave it for any longer than a couple of days and it takes heaps of cranking to fire up. Restarts immediately thereafter
  4. Bad for breaking cam chains I believe
  5. I seem to recall those Marina LE's were available only as a 1.3 - why didn't they do a 1.8 so it at least gave it a chance to match its good looks - classic BL shooting itself in the foot
  6. Loving the red 2.8i (as used to own one identical), the MG Maestro looks fit and also the 205 GTi 1.6
  7. Spotted at an American hot rod show today here in NZ. The chap standing nearby (the owner?) was clearly taken aback that someone would photograph it!
  8. As long as you don't mind having a RHD bike in Spain
  9. Yes they produced both until the end with the final on being badged as Exclusives. Recognisable by the twin headlights
  10. I am in the very fortunate position to have both. Had Capris for over 25 years. Bought the Manta about 4 years ago (albeit probably only been on the road for about a year in all that time!). Reckon Manta handles better but Capri sounds better (it is a 3.0 mind).
  11. With regards to the guy on the Blue forum buying the Bini to get home, I was surprised no-one had noticed/made the comment about the Proton Persona in the background of one of his photos. Then I rememberered it was the Blue fiorum I was now reading and not AS - suspect not a lot of interest from powerfully built directors in Protons
