Steve's Second Book — Learn More and Reserve Your Copy

Steve's second book, CAPRI 50: A CELEBRATION OF FORD’S ICONIC COUPE The untold stories of the car you always promised yourself will be released soon.


This is an all-new book with a unique structure; three sections each kick off with the design brief for the original Capri, Capri II and Capri Mark III. Each section is beautifully illustrated using one of 12 newly-commissioned profiles drawn in the same style as those used in the Collector’s Edition of Steve's first book.


They are supported by hundreds of never-seen photos and first-hand accounts from Ford’s leaders that designed, engineered and marketed the Capri. This is a sister book to The Cars You Always… and 99 per cent the material is unseen and never published before.



Availability is initially limited to existing and future owners of The Cars You Always Promised Yourself. Limited quantities will be available at shows where Steve is present* and from the Capri Owners Club.
