I had one of these for about 2 weeks

it was ruddy lethal in the wet

It amused me at the time that the Mk2 granada I also owned has far more sophisticated suspension than the 'sports car' and handled far far better
that one I kept for a couple of years

Looking forward to seeing how the build goes.

I had 2 Capris when I was younger. A T Reg Mark 3 1.6GL in Midnight Blue with Red seats and trim which was written off when a Triumph Spitfire turned across my path at a set of Traffic Lights. That was replaced by an S Reg 2.0S in Signal Orange Amber with Fishnet Recaro seats. Those were the days.
