It's quite crazy to think, the Ford Capri has just turned 50 years old this year, now everyone has either owned one or experienced one.
 
There were 3 Mk's produced in total and one of the final models was the Capri Brooklands Edition a 2.8l that came in green and was a special edition Capri.
 
We interview the founder of Ford Capri club Mansfield, this club attracts members from all over the UK with a range of fabulous cars.
 
These cars include a Zakspeed tribute, Tickford and the exact Mk3 Capri that was used as a base for the yellow Corgi model car that was sold in many toy shops.
 
The Zakspeed is a rather special model, it's creator wanted the car to feature 3 points the racing car had, petrol filler on side rear window, a Turbo engine and a side exit exhaust, all these were achieved, both this and the RS were driven to the show in torrential weather, a rather brave feat.
 
Each car on display was pretty much spotless and each model was different and very cool in it's own unique way.
