Anyone have any video clips of the blue and silver flaked Starlyte V8 capri from the early 80's. It was at shows every weekend from from about easter till october.
I built this in late 70's and never saw or heard it moving would love to see a clip of it, especially in its later guise with the blower and chromed irs.

Any idea where that was taken, that was in its second from last rebuild seen here at doncaster - then again I might have painted the front end again as there is a lot less silver and some flames on the front which I don't think were on this version below.
Not sure who that thin youngster is polishing the mirror tiles :bigsmile:
That looks like Ken Holmes Chevy in the background.

Mk2 cortina estate made into a pick up by John Zeidler of scunthorpe.

Earlier guise in background.


The removed section of the estate was welded onto the rear of Barry Sealeys PA cresta (white with yellow and blue graphics).



Shortly after Pick up was broken and running gear was put into a Vauxhall HA viva pick up (white with blue stripes/graphics) owned by Barry Sealeys lads (gaz and darren).

Front axle (narrowed transit) was replaced with ifs, tranny axle spent a year under my Zodiac when it was a Hi-rider. Hope that helps.
Pics were taken at bridge county cruiser show either 83 or 84.
