I think it would be fair to say that all ST owners are people that look for more in a car than it just getting them from A to B. To this end I wondered what other cars people had driven over the years. Got my list below since I started driving in 1981, got some great memories happy, sad and some in court !

1. Capri Mk1 Facelift 1.6 XL FPV 509L
2. Capri Mk2 1.6 XL SKL 160M
3. Capri Mk1 Facelift 3.0 GXL BGV 404L
4. Capri Mk3 2.8 Injection CVF 28Y
5. Capri Mk3 2.8 Injection FPU 550Y
6. Capri Mk1 3000 GT XLR LPU 358J
7. Capri Mk3 2.8 Injection D783 YPM
8. Fiesta 1.8 D L294 KVW
9. Mondeo 1.8 TD LX Estate T528 WWC
10. Mondeo ST TDCi

As you can see I'm a Ford man for better or worse and was a bit of a Capri nut in my post marriage/kids/dogs/more free time days and certainly would'nt rule out getting another one at some time as a toy to have with the ST TDCi.

"Henry" 06 ST TDCi Performance Blue, Technology Pack

Ford had a cult following with the Capri-they need to get back to those days. Only car that has come close i would say would be the Sierra & Escort Cosworths.
