    Default It's been 12 years, but my Capri has been completed

    What an experience this project has been... in good ways and bad, but what I've rewarded myself with is a Capri that's exactly what I have always wanted.

    Looks good, congrats! I've been on my 82 Mustang for about 10 or so and nearly done. I've been driving it and having a blast.

    12 years! That's NOTHING!!

    I have a 1969 Mach 1 that I have owned since 1991 that I have never driven or seen the actual road with. I did actually get it to run for about 10 minutes and that's it at this point. NO idea when I will get to it at this point. Same problem you have, I don't want to rebuild/restore/restomod until I can build exactly what I want.

    Capri looks sweet, but we will need more than just a single picture! C'mon Man! This is FEP! Congratulations!

    Congrats! I've been fighting with mine for 16 years. I don't even know how to tell you why it happened that way, but I'm still not there. I really get the swap to carb though. Obviously, I'm a fan of EFI, but I've never had mine running right.
