Ford's Dagenham Dream: Ford Capri 2.8i, Vrooom! #uk #cars

I just watched Ford’s Dagenham Dream, a TV documentary about Ford’s giant UK plant at Dagenham.   It was a strongly nostalgic programme, but a bit sad too that Ford management really screwed things up with the UK workforce to the point where the only Ford product still made today are diesel engines.

The best part was the segment about the Ford Capri.  This is one of the cars I always wanted as a teenager.  Specifically the MIII 2.8i model.  Ferociously fast and the nearest thing you could get to a proper American muscle car outside of Detroit.  Unfortunately, by the time I could afford one, most were rusting, obsolete hulks.
