Nee man Theuns, nie 'n Capri Perana of Can Am nie. As jy braaivleis en sonskyn geniet het moet een van hulle op jou lys wees !

My list would not necessary include classics, maybe some, but at least the 10th garage I will leave open for the lawnmower! Unfortunately I will have to include the wish lists of the wife and daughter. I will post it later.

Well a top 10 for me is a hugely difficult choice and my list is in no particular order

1: Ferrari 430 spider- spent lots of time in one and its an incredible machine
2: Capri Perana
3: Orginal Chev Can Am
4: Hemi Cuda
5: Ford Mustang Boss 429
6: Ford Falcon HO Phase 3
7: 1969 Camaro ZL1(ally motor)
8: Lamborghin Murcielago- again spending 300 kms in the passenger seat one left me with fond memories
9: Ferrari F40
10: Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

Slightly differant list but I would be pretty happy with these 10....though should prob need something bit more practical like an S65... :D
Alfa GTV 3.0
Ford Capri Perana V8
Chevy Lumina Supercharged

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

I note that everyone of you sonofaguns neatly place ther Capri Perana above the Can Am except for V8GFISH and Fairmont GT !

Well this has made me think abit. Considering that there is hardly a single totally original Can Am left these days I guess the copies have done an excellent job of scaring people off.

Hmm see if I can dig out a couple of Can Am's for Fairmont GT and V8GFISH in apreciation !

The reason I did it that way round was because the Perana came before the Can Am..... :D

ZA Per. don't tell anyone that the Capri was a better finnished off car, better engineered conversion, lighter on fuel, easy to drive and cost less when new .....

Well was getting there...know a guy like yourself that owned a Can Am when they were new, a mate owned a Perana and when it came to the twsity bits the Capri just drove away.....

In fact I have a friend in JHB who is considering bringing his Can Am to the cape....maybe for a little comparison, would look good having to the two cars parked side by side...
