    Default Has anyone seen this wild Capri? RETROFOX by SINIS Built - 1983 Mercury Capri

    Saw this a few days ago and thought to share out of general interest. I don't think I've seen it posted on FEP yet

    Between Late Model Restoration's "Project Mercury Rising" retro-mod 1986 ASC McLaren Capri and cars like this one - it looks like "Capri" is starting to get recognition & a bit more popular whether you agree with what they're doing to them or not (resto-mod vs restoration etc)

    It's a kind of slick albeit custom black & orange 1983 Mercury Capri

    I see he cloned some of the "Laser" stripes from the 1980's Ford/Mercury/Motorcraft SCCA race cars - and particularly from the 1985 Mercury Capri Motorsport Grand Prix IV cars

    I put a couple photos below and also a couple of links. And you can websearch "RETROFOX" and "SINIS Built" (aka "Tom Clark") to see ongoing photos etc on the reveal and/or build etc - I see he's mainly on Facebook & Instagram. Evidently this guy & his shop does custom car work and I see LMR did a video on his heavily modded 1979 Mustang Pace Car too

    I don't think Tom would call his home garage a "shop" necessarily (like a true commercial entity), but he does some great work. I follow him on Instagram and saw it when he started showing the build concept. He has an account on FEP, but I don't think he's very active anymore. It's a build for his wife and being done before Mustang Week last I saw. It should be nice, although the white interior would be hard for me to keep clean.

    Ah yes I see now FEP member 69clark - Looking at the "before" photos of this Capri - the car did in fact look pretty nice before he even started. I loved the black exterior & white interior - I think that looked amazing.

    Wow what a car for the wife (and probably for that little dog of hers too lol)

    It looks freakin KILLER! What I like is the fact that it still looks like an 1983 Capri!

    Top notch work as usual!
