Just a reminder.  The 13th Annual Mid-America Capri Gathering is August 9th in Freeport Illinois.  This year it will be held at Krape Park on flagstaff where it has been on previous years (back by popular demand). 

13 years.  It is hard to believe it's been going on this long.  Big thanks to Shirley Svejcar, Rick Stone and the family Stone, Russ Carlson and Brittany Calhoun for keeping our dream alive. 

We look forward to the Biggest (and best) gathering of Capri convertible enthusiasts in the world gather once again.  If you have never made one, now is the time (Ya I know, I say that every year). 

It really is special to have all of us together in one place.  There is nothing like seeing 30+ Capri's all together and there is nothing like all of the bullshit that is talked when the owners of 30 Capri's get together. 

I laugh at how we spend the whole day and early evening together and then we then go to the Motel and keep talking long into the morning hours. 

It is always a good time and I recommend it just to be able to put faces to the names.

 Grin Hello everyone. I'm new to the whole Capri thing. Like all of you I am a proud Capri owner. Fortunately I have 2. I've a base model,fun. and of course a Extremely fun XR2. I've only recently purchased the XR2, and the base my dad just gave me a few months ago but it hasn't run in over 3 years. What a pain. I'm new to four cylinder vehicles and electronic cars. I've always had older carburated vehicles such as 67 mustang and a 66 fairlane 500 wagon, also a rare car. Both my Capri's are red right now. The XR2 is loaded with all the goodies where the base flat out isn't. No fog lights, steel wheels, no hard top, spoiler, power locks. Nothing. Base has around 167,000 miles while the XR2 is still around 127,000, and purrs. I plan on modifying the XR2 dramaticly over a period of time.The poor thing was in a bad hail stormand needs a lot of body work, and i plan on doing some tuning to the cute little turbo powered 1.6. Since I'm going to be doing body work i thought i'd go ahead and try some aftermarket body kits as well as maybe learning how to make some fiberglass parts for it. All though i say modifying dramaticly, I guess compared to rocketmans awd mod it wont be much....slick man, slick. I would like to get my base model up and running so i can concentrate all efforts on the XR2 from beginning to end, and then maybe restoring the base, but for the most part i really wont mess with the base much. Thanks for having me on your great Capri site, and one day I'm hoping to catch up to you guys at a meet someday even if I haven't done anything by then, i'd still enjoy meeting other Capri fans and gazing at their rides. I dont have any pics yet...hail damage is not pretty  Shocked , but will post as I do.

We had a record turnout for the NECG with 8 capris this year! Took a different route this year that took us into the Delaware Water Gap, up through the park service, into Milford/Matamoras and finally to High Point, NJ with an incredible view.

Thank you to all who attended, I had an absolute blast! Really looking forward to next year already!

We have Russ, Ian, and Mark here safely from the Midwest - and more people on the way! The weather is shaping up to be half decent tomorrow. Shaping up to be another great meet!

Howdy All! If you are attending the 3rd Annual NorthEast Capri Gathering  & are looking for hotel info, here it is!

The hotel we stayed in last year is the Pocono Inn At Water Gap. It is located right up the street from the main meeting place, its less than a 1/4 mile away.

Pocono Inn At Water Gap
101 Broad Street, Delaware Water Gap, PA
(570) 476-0000

Rates are $59 Friday night & $69 Saturday night. I am trying to work a 10% discount here. We will probably be having a small pre-party & after-party here, for those interested. Meet tradition Smiley

There is also the Days Inn in East Stroudsburg, this is right off Route 80 at the Marshalls Creek Exit, one exit away from Water Gap. It's a 5 minute or less drive to the PA Welcome Center.

Days Inn
1501 Seven Bridges Road, East Stroudsburg PA
(570) 424-1951

Rates are $59 Friday night and $68 Saturday night. They have a Mexican restaurant & pool at this location.

There are also a handful of hotels in Stroudsburg but they are a little more pricey.
Super8 Stroudsburg
Pocono Budget Inn
