Welcome to the ONLY
website DEDICATED TO THE CAPRI 280
Ford Capri 280 - the only G reg ever!
IMAGE - FOR SALE PAGE
Many people are asking where the Capri 280's are on my site.
Well, truth to tell I don't even bother to list them for sale any more - my list of
customers waiting is too long for the supply of decent 280's coming in.
Plus there is currently a bug going around which hopefully will pass soon. The bug is the crazy values that people
are putting on Capris in general and 280's in particular. People are being totally scammed by the craze.
I keep being asked the values of a Capri 280 and I have given up relying in any meaningful way now. I just say,
money, do what you feel is right for you"

I haven't stopped acquiring Capri 280's. It's just that there are so many rotting 280's and in need of full restoration that I walk away
from a lot. The owners still think that asking a high price is OK because it's a Brookie. Well clearly it's not OK.
A project is a project and that rule still applies.
If you have a decent, straight, clean, un molested 280 that you want to sell please contact me.
If you have
an unregistered 280 also please contact me - I am discreet - even
if we don't make a deal I won't let on where your car

Well, there's a much better photo Gallery of my past and present 280's.

There's an Events page that will give details of any motoring event that is likely to include the Capri 280 or else a Capri in some shape or form.
There will be a smarter For Sale Cars and Parts section and Wanted section So you can advertise your own 280 for the sum of £50 for as long as you want.

Update March 2009 - after 4 replacement units in less than 2 years and continual issues with mapping and 'mislaid' items I sent I can no longer recommend Indago or Syrius by Performance Products.
So, enough for now - I'll keep you posted as the site develops.
Welcome back everyone and thanks to all those who've previewed the site.
Brooklands280.com the website was started by me about 10 years ago. The site was set up as a hobby. It soon progressed to become the top site for pictures and advice about Capri 280's with hits from all over the globe.
When I decided to sell my first 280 in June 1996 (which I owned for 8 years) I realised there were many folk out there who were searching for a fabulous Capri 280 and who didn't want to spend months making it look great. Enter Dr Brooklands!
I have owned and shown many of my privately owned Capri 280's in the past 10 years and still the message is the same - people absolutely adore my cars. Plain and simple.
Due to the popularity of the private website and the pristine cars, Brooklands280.com now works with Capri The Legend Lives, a small, new company to promote the ever increasing awareness of (and accessibility to own) a Capri 280.
Based in South Wales but covering the whole of the UK, as of April 2006 I can assure you of a fairly regular stock of exquisite Capri 280's for sale. These will be limited in number as I take time to prepare each to ensure near enough show condition cars (mostly exceeding show condition). Just check the For Sale section.
Quote of the month:- "Our local hospital is mowed out - 100 people with sore necks!!" - Simon, new owner of a Dr Brooklands G reg 280.
"This bloke on a motorbike followed me and flagged me down, I thought he was gonna mug me until he lifted his visor and said, "Nice set of wheels mate!" - Tim Dr Brooklands Capri owner.
