    What a missed opportunity. Looks like a Mondeo coupe with a bodykit to me.

    I like it too. Nothing like my old 1970 GT2000 but ........

    If it built like the new Mondeo it will be another winner.

    The front end looks pure Mondeo. I would have liked to have seen something fresh.

    Looks pants! I suspect modern regulations might have something to do with it. Personally, I think the bonnet needed to be longer and lower.

    I've just gone off you ;) Do you still drive it or is it being preserved?

    Destined to be another Probe or Cougar.

    That's not to say I don't like it. I think it looks great.

    Now I want to see a replacement for the Puma - a real Ford pocket rocket.

    The 'r' is in the wrong place in its name.

    Suppose after all these years it would look a lot different to the original. Looks ok but you wouldn't look at it cold and say that's a Capri.

    I like the idea and guess that plenty of older blokes would consider one to relive their youth, I would.

    However, I suspect that it will be too small, one of the photos makes it look like a Scirocco which would be a shame as the original wasn't a little car.

    My Dad had two, one in 1975 and another in 1982. He hated the second one which suited me as I had not long passed my test and he would lend it to me whenever I wanted and it was usually full of fuel too, happy days!

    Looks great, a bit different to the old one, had two of the ones from the past.
