The Capri lives! (And is unofficially for sale.)

After some initial delays, we took this to a local person who is known for fixing complex wiring issues. What happened is that a previous owner had cut many, many wires under the hood. Good job, Scott! She runs…

We took this to our house to see how it ran. My better half was trying his best to behave with it. I had taken the car for a quick spin around our shop’s parking lot before, but even with that, I was pleasantly surprised. The motor in this a drag motor from a 1990 Mustang that a friend of a friend had acquired in a divorce. Here are the specs:

  • Small Block 302
  • Headman headers
  • Aftermarket 4 barrel aluminum intake
  • Edelbrock 650 cfm 4 bbl carb
  • Summit Racing starter with a wrap
  • Unsure of cam
  • Motor has been converted to serpentine belt

My next project is to get the interior back together. After that, maybe I can entertain the aesthetic suggestions from friends for the exterior…

I was outvoted on this look.

As the new year approaches, I would like to thank each and every one of you for following our blog and other social media sites, and for buying from our Sports Car Salvage eBay store.

Your support has made many endeavors possible. We have been able to contribute to the Yellow Ribbon Fund via Ebay’s Giving Works program. Our summertime spoils added some vigor to Saturdays @ Schumann’s Roadside & Towing cruise-ins. Most recently, we were able to make Christmas happen for some who would otherwise have gotten little to nothing.
