This group of people are looking inside the engine compartment of a Ford Capri 3.0 Ghia V6 at a recent local Classic Cars and Bikes event.

Now you can see too. The stereos are conventional and crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Lumix G Vario 14-45mm at 39mm, 23mm and 25mm, f11 hand-held.

The car was in shade. I brightened the images up for the inside views but didn't want burn-out highlights in the first one.

    Nice photography work!

    Beautiful car too, nice crisp detail in the images.

    Thanks for sharing these.

    The Capri was sold in the U.S. by Mercury dealers. A friend of mine had one....a 1973 if I remember correctly. The only thing I remember about it was an oddity. The windshield wipers were actuated by the foot when it was placed upon a trigger mechanism imbedded in the floor opposite the brake and gas pedals,

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Thanks. I had a Zephyr at about that time. All I remember about it is the column change.

    Í would like to know what the thinking was behind that.
