    Default Motorsport Capri 30th Anniversary Review

    On Sunday August 16th, the Motorsport Capri 30th Anniversary Reunion took place at the Mustang & Memories car show at Ford's Product Development Center in Dearborn, MI.

    The days leading up to the big reunion was filled with a lot of fun stuff.

    On Thursday, a few of us met up at Jack Roush's open house. Jacks car collection was on display, driver autograph sessions, & a great car show. Mr. Roush even came out & signed my Motorsport Capri and chatted for a bit about the SCCA Roush Capri's & the Motorsport Capri.





    Saturday 2 Motorsport Capri's were at Royal Oak Ford for the Woodward Dream Cruise. The Dream Cruise is the largest 1 day car event in the world. Over 1 hundred thousand vintage, classic, and muscle cars converge on the 1st paved road in the US. over 1 million people attend every year on the 3rd Saturday in August.
    1 of the Motorsport Capri's muscled in on Mustang Alley. A street off Woodward ave closes down and is taken over by 700 mustangs.

    On Sunday, Fords PDC was the place to be for the Capri.



    6 of the 55 1985 Motorsport Capri's were on display.

    The 52,000 mile prototype made its show debut.




    One of 9 Silver Metallic Motorsport Capri's



    1 of 3 Motorsport Capri replicas built without any factory options.




    42,000 mile all original (except the rims) T-Top car.



    A Motorsport Capri with a sunroof (only 7 made) was there as well as 1 of 8 with Red Interior .

    an additional 8 Capris came out to join us & they including a beautiful 85 ASC McLaren coupe, 86 ASC Vert, restored 1981 RS, pair of customs & a super rare 83 base model 5.0L with the ASC McLaren dealer option.





    all of the 1400 + cars that attended the show received a plaque, but only a handful of cars received special awards & 2 Motorsport Capri's & the ASC McLaren convertible snagged some.

    a great day for all who attended.









    & Roush brought this 1 of a kind out. looks familure!

    Great pics and even better cars, but I have a question....what's up with the red tape on the headlight covers on that one GPIV? Is there any meaning behind that?
    Cheers!

    i think 1 had a crack in the plastic so he put tape on it to stop it from spreading. then just added some to the other to match.
