|Petrolhead Ford Capri Mk3 T-shirt (choice of colours)|
Henry Ford was responsible for developing and manufacturing the very first mass produced, affordable motor cars. During the 1970s and 80s, Ford produced some very memorable and highly popular family vehicles such as the Fiesta, Escort and Granada. The sportier models such as the XR3i and Capri became instant hits with boy racers.
No doubt, there will be many people reading this post who will have memories (good and bad) of driving a Ford car back in the 80s. I became a bit of a fan during my time working at the local Ford garage in the late 80s, where I used to deliver and collect new and used Ford cars from garages around the country, as well as delivering serviced vehicles back to their owners. I was very fortunate to have driven just about every model, so it's no wonder that I became a fan. I only ever drove one Capri, though, and this was an orange-coloured Mk3 similar to the one featured on the first T-shirt above. It was a strange beast to drive - I wasn't used to the low ground clearance - and the bonnet seemed to stretch out for a mile! But that was the point, it was supposed to feel different to the standard family cars and appeal to those who hadn't yet started a family and wanted to splash their cash on a fun, sporty model.
There are plenty of other T-shirts available featuring the Capri through the many sellers at Amazon.co.uk.
