Maybe if it was pink and a curly tail. The front grill doesn't flow at all looks a bit slap dab. But each to their own.

zagmad 27th March 2016 20:26

Or an allegro convertible. That would be awesome. ;-)

Ford Capri preface lift mk1's look good . Bit like the mxico but with a Capri rear. Some seem to have round tailights.

I meant the great looking ford consul Capri not the standard one.

I cannot seem to post pics via my tablet

An good example is from this link

http://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=30468

Can someone please do the honours ?

This car is the first one I got to know as my dad had one . Even recall the registration as 819 TKO

Weird how you csn remember some things isn't it

Sorry, got a bit distracted by the whole JBA Javelin theme.

Here's the Consul Capri in coupe and convertible form, got to say I prefer the coupe myself -

Remove grille - an infill / bonnet lip in the body colour, followed by some form of horizontal bars in black and/or body color and the whole character of the car would be changed?

But what about the back?

Oink. Oink.

zagmad 28th March 2016 09:33

Two tone soft top. Genius. Id go for a bigger rear window to balance the door glass. Quite a big drop off the boot lid. Almost early slk

A grill like this would help

Oink. Oink.

And perhaps Tribute could make a sloping back to make it look faster. They could call it a fastback

There. Much better

And why not something inspired by this.....

http://oi67.tinypic.com/33vp20k.jpg

This is a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso with a roofline which you might like.

By the way, the car in the picture is a replica, using a Volvo P1800 as a donor. This was the car used for the movie "Tower Heist", were Adam Stiller and Eddie Murphy steal it from a penthouse. (interesting movie).

Turn the rather ugly American Town car inspired convertible into a far prettier coupe? Absolute genius! It would look really rather good and be worth three to five times more with the right spec.

Oh, and for those who asked 'why bother when old escorts are so cheap anyway?' over on the MXico thread, here's the answer -

Perfecto. (Alfa pic) dsg. That's what was in my head all along.

zagmad 28th March 2016 11:15

Want that one. Just like that . Can I have one of them please Chris. But in pure grey and rota flashback alloy wheels. :-)

zagmad 28th March 2016 11:17

Would you be able to overlay that onto an mx5 pic to see how it lines up please. Allowing for the aerial and fuel cap..:-)

What about a Tribute forum group buy of all the convertible Capris so we can refit rooves and make our fortunes!

Zagmad can be in charge of sourcing the rooves to satisfy his obsession.

zagmad 28th March 2016 13:46

Ha ha ha . Found the roofline I like its the one above off the Italia. But yeah I could sort the roofs if anyone wants a one off roof. As the mx5 has a shorter wheel bad and slanted screen it requires a certain roof. I spose a sporting break/brake would cover all bases. Could be a sporty estate or hatch back.
