I'm with Malc on this. American cars only really work in this country as weekend playthings. On a practical day-to-day basis they are too big, too LHD, too thirsty for our expensive fuel, narrow roads and pokey car parks.
The Capri, especially in V6 form, captured the spirit of the US ponycar in a form that worked in Europe, and in a way that nothing else really did. Which is probably why it stuck around long after it's sell-by date.
On a vaguely related note, it will be interesting to see how the new Mustang gets on here.
Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).
