I’d have it and the Rover in front of it. But it needs the bumpers put back on and those air horns would have to go!

You said you miss having a car you can work on. Perhaps this is an ideal project?

That does look mean. I quite like the shape of Capris. But I drove a 2.8 injection once in the wet and found it a bit unwieldy and unpredictable during oversteer. I recall repeatedly bashing my elbow on the drivers door while fighting the thing lol. It was quite a new one at the time too. That put me off them really.
I was into Sierras at the time and found them much more obedient to drive. Probably due to their superior suspension setup I guess.

I love those! (y). I had the Consul Classic. Not as nice looking as the Capri, a bit like an oversized Anglia 105E...the rear window sloped inward and never got wet lol.
That was the first car I drove after passing my test.
