i had a '73 Cqpri with the 2600 V6. It replaced my first car, a 1969 Cougar Eliminator. We called the Capri, the poorman's BMW 2002. It was a fun car and my first manual transmission car. My other 1970's cars which I still own are a 1978 Datsun 280Z (bought new) and a 1972 De Tomaso Pantera (owned over 20 years).
