X-Pack Capri II

For some unfathomable reason, the mkII Capri has taken quite a while to receive the recognition it deserves; eclipsed by the chromed retro chic of the mkI and the refinement of the mkIII, the gritty middle child has many of the pros of its younger/older brothers, but without the price-tag. (Well, comparatively speaking.)
And you certainly can't go wrong with a rumbling 3.0-litre Essex V6 - suckin' through carbs of course, none of that nancy Cologne fuel-injected nonsense - and a savagely begirthed X-Pack kit, swathed in lurid orange. Late-seventies Dagenham perfection.
