i was  reffering  to the   European  capri's  pre 1979 (fox  platform)   the  older   bodystyle seems  like it slightly  resembles this  ford style......

 Cool pic mate, but that wasn't what i intended to build, this build is a tribute for the late Paul Walker aka Brian O'Connors from the fast and furious, this Ford Esprit MK1 RS1600 is featured in the F&F6

the euro Capri was a much bigger car..it shared some of its drivetrain with the Taunus ..it was also available with a v6 engine..

the Escort really is a small car even for our standards..

i was just merely shareing that the cars have that euro look and seem to share some design cues it looks like just stating they are sort of similar looking cars :)
