With the Capri 50th celebration being planned for Wagga in 2019, Im wondering if we can gather as many of the "Last 11" as we can and have a special row just for them.  I know of at least 4 that will be able to be driven there.

Capri The car I always promised myself

Cheers Ron,
"touch wood" my heater core is like a sauna bath ! .............hopefully it was replaced or maybe proper coolant was always used  as I always have done..........but the tap wont turn off.  So as to not tempt fate, as I heard the heater cant be overhauled in a short exercise, I may put a tap on the engine till I get around to overhauling the whole dash which is cracked badly in one place, as is the Instrument Surround.
Have you any suggestions to fixing these cracked Dash Pads Ron ?  I thought black Silastic or that better one called SIKAFLEX which is worth the extra high expense as it seems to leave all other brands for dead.
Those beaut black/yellow 165HP decals you sent me look good with the car's glovebox Folder thanks Ron.
kind regards
Bernie

John,
I'm confident my 165HP GTv6 can cope with a return trip to Wagga as one of the "Last Eleven", but not sure if it will coincide with other plans......... Now would be the time to make hotel reservations I'd guess, if not too late ?.........where would I find more details of this event please ?

There is a movement building up a head of steam to hold the 50th Anniversary at the Lake Hume Resort, out of Albury, where the Cortina Club has held its last two major events. What would readers think about that location?

Current ride:
'83 Mk.3 Capri, 2.8i, 5-spd

Hi Deano,
what can you tell us about this one?  Colour, options, general condition? Is it likely to see the light of day anytime soon? Cheers,...ron.

Ron its going back about  20 year ago, but sure.
I have the owners handbooks, first reg 9/2/73, LJT-301. sold to  a Geelong company only 10km from me.
V6 obviously, manual, mustard color, high back, black interior, gt bonnet with blackout and GT locks, and rostyle rims.
Car all complete, was a daily drive, still registered. Paintwork was as expected for a daily workhack, but car still ran fine.
Ít had usual dints, rusted pillars but was generally semi tidy, maybe 6/10?
Sold to a local that I know, but haven't caught up with for a year or so. He has a number of capris, many in storage.
I believe this car is just put into his shed with the others.
 
From the above, I kept the rostyles, bonnet,gt console, parcel shelf. I expect it will see light again, as current owner now knows it was one of the 'specials'' , but then we know all Capris are special to us.

Thanks Deano,
its good to have info in print by someone in the know. I knew there was a mustard colour one, this must be it.
Also there is a written off one ,CK17ME34032P.
So that accounts for seven cars which leaves five to go. Still a good chance of finding more, please keep looking.

Terry,
I remember driving my cortina gt66 there with some friends and camping back in 69-70. Happy days.
My capri should have no trouble with the distance and should get reasonable fuel economy.
I reckon its more important that the venue suits our needs so if the hume resort is better then so be it. I dont think an extra 50k will bother any queenslanders coming.
JR.
Would be good to get these cars together again,...cheers,ron.

Would be good to get these cars together again,
and my 99% finished project in 2009 that didn't make it last time, should be there next time.  
I still have that pic of all the Vermillion Fire cars lined up !!
