The club is at Richards Bay, which the South African Government has decided is to be the pre-eminent bulk cargo terminal between Cape Town and Suez, and that Sunday, like any other day, the approach channels were alive with huge bulk carriers sliding to and fro, arriving empty from Japan and Korea, from Seattle and Valparaiso and Darwin, and leaving full of aluminium, or grain, or copper ore from the mines of the Rand and the Veldt.

From November 1984 onwards, the Capri was sold only in Britain, with only right hand drive cars were made from this date. The 1.6 and 2.0 variants were rebranded with a new trim level – "Laser" – which featured a fully populated instrument pod, leather gear lever, leather steering wheel and an electric aerial along with colour-coded grille and mirrors.

The first book i found was my car manual, page 56 onwards was a history of the car for some reason i don't care about ..... :S

"The two or three Oxford friends I had kept up a spasmodic correspondence with sank beneath the horizon."

Can't help but chuckle at this one. All that brilliant optimism of youth: shattered, all those brillant young minds: somehow sunk into convention.

DRAMATIC ARTS: Music, dance, and the recitation of tales were indispensable to Indian ritual and can be considered a part of religion.
