    Default How many RS Capri's in SoCal?

    ROLL CALL!

    How many RS/GS 5.0/turbo 4 Capri's do we have in Southern California? I know there isn't a bunch seeing as I got the license plate RS CAPRI for the entire state of California. I know a few Tri-Color 84 cars have left the state over the past few years because I was interested in buying all of them LOL

    I have been to several show's and it is starting to look like I'm the only guy with a "restored" RS Capri in Southern California? There has to be more RS Capri's out here! It's nice having one of a few but being the only guy is kind of a drag!

    Anyone have one/working on one?

    Search the "Pick A Part" Websites in California.

    That's where all the ones I have seen are located!

    Hey Joe, long time no see! Hope you are doing well! I wanna see your new Falcon this coming year! I am hoping to have the new suspension and k-member in the RS this winter and make some of the Ford/Car shows next year. Hope to see you there!

    It's not in terrible shape outside but there is no interior pictures or a mention of mileage. For $4,800 I would need a lot more information then that. One can only assume that no interior pics means interior is most likely in sad shape.

    Bringing a dead thread to life. I was thinking about my first fox car the other day and how it would be really cool to know if it still exists. I bought an 83 Capri RS TTop 4 speed car charcoal grey in color when I lived in Santee California back in 86. It had 20k miles on it and was a blast cruising Mission Bay back in the day!

    86 GT Sold brother has it.

    Your Capri looks great Joe!

    I think 1984 was the last year of the RS Capri in the states, They switched to the GS. They did still have the RS in Canada in 85-86 though. Not sure why they stopped using it here. I thought it was because Chevy was giving Ford Crap for using the RS logo LOL.
