  1. How on earth did they manage to make a loss on the Capri? It still confounds me to this day. Restored at that level can pull £5k at least all day. One thing Mike lacks is the ability to get top price for the cars(he’s done well once or twice), seems like he just wants a quick sale and is happy to make a loss doing so.
