Dont forget the GinGin British ford day on May 20th

Hi Everyone - Just a quick reminder that the Gin Gin British car day is on next Sunday 20th May.
It's the best car show of the year in my opinion as you can come and go as you please. There is also lots of stalls, entertainment and plenty to eat and drink - see you there.

Here are a couple of photo's of my Teal Glow 1972 V6 Capri. It is a matching numbers Capri with only 125000 miles on the clock. The interior is in excellent unrestored condition. It was resprayed about 8 years ago in its original Teal glow colour. The V6 essex motor has loads of torque. It is a manual 4 speed, has original radio, a map light, centre console with clock, rear window venetian and fake side vents - it also has the optional driving lights with reproduction covers.

Perth Capri Cruise 3/4/2011

well we only had a turn out of 6 Capri's on this cruise, the smallest turn out by far. It was however a great day out and the scenery to Northam was much better than expected. We cruised down there at 8.30am and within the hour we were all on display at the minson st oval along with a variety of other classic cars. The racing action itself was a spectacle to see, I doubt there would be many places in Australia that you can get that close to the action. The cars varied from vintage to modern, open wheelers to ferrari's and jaguars and even a couple of shed builds. We cruised back to Perth at our own leasure at about 2pm

The next Perth Capri cruise has been organised. It will be a year to the day since our last cruise to the car museum at Gidgegannup so it is high time we had another one. This time around we plan on going to watch the "round the houses" vintage car races at Northam. A lot of you would have been there before but if not it basically involves lots of vintage/classic cars racing on a street circuit through the heart of Northam. Expect to see lots of escorts/mini's/cortina's not to mention a Capri or two. There are 24 races with over 100 cars registered to race, races start at 10am. There will also be lots of other family entertainment with most the streets being closed down for the festival. Check out :
Above is the map for the meeting point. As it shows, this meeting point is about 8 km east out of midland down Great Eastern Hwy, this way we avoid traffic lights and possible seperation. Its about another 80km to Northam - so make sure you give your car a check over before the cruise and get plenty of fuel. Meeting time is a little early at 8am for an 8.30 departure however this will get us to Northam approx 20 minutes prior to the first race and we may also beat any potential heat. Feel free to print out or forward on this map to any other classic small ford owners with cars such as Escorts, Cortina's and Anglia's
maybe we can get another 20 Capri's out and about again !!
