Hello,

Some people in the Euro Ford community know me, some don't. I only just found out about this sight, I was a member of the NAEFR for a long while, and always looked forward to reading the newsletter. For whatever reason, I thought the registry had folded, but now I know the name has changed I will be joining again, as long as there is still a newsletter.

I moved here in 2000 from London, and brought my 1970 right hand drive Ford Capri with me. Since then, I've bought a 1973 left hand drive Mercury Capri, four Merkur XR4Tis, and shipped over another two Minis.

Sadly however, I need to sell some or all of my old cars to raise some cash. I won't post them here however, I'll put them in the correct place. Before anyone thinks that I'm just joining this site to sell my stuff, I plan on getting more Euro Fords later on as finances allow.

Below are some pictures of my cars, together with links to more information.

Welcome back. I had seen your yellow one advertised somewhere (maybe it was here) and I must say I like the stance on your white Capri. It looks very sharp.

Yeah, someone posted a link to the eBay auction. It saddens me that our Euro Fords aren't worth a lot of money, yet if it was some muscle car, you'd be seeing five figures.

The white car is LOW, lower than a low snakes belly. I used to have trouble with the exhaust rubbing until I had a new one put on and they welded all the joints. More pics can be found here :

Hi Lee,

Welcome to EnFoStuff.com, and yes I remember you from your NAEFR days. Sorry that you are being forced to sell off your really nice collection. I hope it all finds really GOOD homes, and that you are able to get back in the gane before long.

Michael
