I love those Euro Capris....2.8 V-6, slick shifting Getrag 4spd, I stripped the emissions off of mine, ran headers, dual monza exhausts, Keystone Classic mag wheels, Holley 390 carb...that thing was fast. Had it in high school...when the first of the F body camaro/firebirds came out with the early anemic 5.0 V-8...my Capri would eat those for breakfast. Brakestands in first and second gear..and still leave a healthy foot or so mark when banging 3rd gear.

the javelin was nice but your bro-in-laws sound really nice. Post a pic sometime. My 3rd car was a Datsun (Now Nissan) 240Z with custom Pierre Cardin paint. All the Pierre cardin stuff was nice including the Cadillac Coupe Devilles of that era.

1976 Honda Civic - Interesting thing about this car. It was a semi-automatic. Meaning I had to shift from 1st to 2nd gear when accelerating and back again when decelerating at around 20 mph. Crazy thing is it had no clutch. :p

When I was younger... In the late 80's, I drove a 1983 Honda Civic Hatchback.. bought it used. Almost like this one.. same color but not a long as this wagon.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b0/Civic_2g.jpg/250px-Civic_2g.jpg

This was a nice little car. "SEMI-AUTOMATIC" it was dubbed. You put it in 1st, then after 30mph , you put it into 2nd. When you stopped, you put it back into 1st.. LOL.. or.. Leave it in 2nd rev the engine and pop that puppy into 1st.. good times :D The other wicked cool thing was that this car had a cassette deck that had a FM/AM radio PLUS Shortwave.. weird.. also had Weather Radio band freq's (Noaa) which was also cool.. that got ripped off by the tow truck company.. (cont..)

My Father put in a new heater core.. and had to remove the whole dash to install the fickin thing for it to work.. then.. I got broadsided.. still got the indent in my leg that reminds me of the event. My Father was ticked but he was cool about it at the same time, seeing how it wasn't 100% my fault..

I am sure we've been here before. :D
Mine was a 1948 Standard 8 similar to the pic but not quite..
Suicide doors, sliding roof, rod actuators on the brakes (no cables or hydraulics) and a timber floor.

It was also fitted with side and back window roll up privacy blinds operated by cord above the driver's door.
Great fun. Wish I still had the old girl.

Oh yeah.... A powerhouse 8hp sidevalve engine and 4 speed gearbox, floor shift.

Headlamps on mine were 9" and all chrome.

Lee Anders
05-23-08, 03:10 PM
For sure I'll date myself by doing this - but - my first car was a 1949 Buick Dynaflow, 4 Door, Straight 6, with Auto Transmission. I was 17 yrs old, in service, home on leave, and discovered this car, 8 years old at the time, sitting in grown up bushes, behind an old neighborhood service station. The owner sold it to me for $125. - towed it up front, put gas in it and charged the battery.

I drove it back and forth beween Memphis, TN and Ft Bragg, NC, for about 18 months, without ever raising the hood, until it finally threw a rod this side of Asheville, NC. Big black wonderful highway cruiser!
