Team50*North: Keeping the Legend Alive!!!A 1980 Mark III Ford Capri Ghia 2.0L Auto with a Burton Stage II Cylinder Head, a Burton Fast Road Camshaft, K&N Air Filter, Weber 40 Twin Choke Carb, performance big bore exhaust, 30% uprated/1" lowered suspension - we are talking Spax gas adjustable rear shocks, Leda front struts and leaf spring assisters here :-0 (all of this will be reversed by adding rally mods to beef this baby up in time for the Mongolia Rally); and right now she is running on RS3100 4 spoke alloys soon to be replaced with Alley Kat Rallye Specials - which is another vital change esssential for The Official Mongolia Charity Rally 2009!. Other mods will be a retro fit manual transmission, re-routed electrics and armoured fluid/fuel pipes; plus bash plates to protect the underside stuff like sump, gearbox, fuel tank and other vulnerable bits; and importantly, more supportive and comfy seats!!!! In short, the existing Capri will undergo major surgery and emerge leaner, faster, harder and much better suited to the The Official Mongolia Charity Rally 2009. Bring it on!
40 years since the birth of the Capri ... 40 years since the birth of me!!! Keeping the Legend Alive!!!
This is an old Mercedes estate we bought off eBay for £500. She is a true beauty, fine paintwork and good lines make her an excellent example of the classic estate that Mercedes produced from 1988-93...
The Mighty VitaraSide view of VitaraAnd the Rear (what you'll all be seeing..... poking out of a ditch)
We have picked up a workhorse of a Vitara, which has been professionally converted into a single cab 4x4 pickup. It looks to be very well maintained and with its diesel engine should last the Mongolians a very long time.
