The contrast between the Caprice and Mini coupe caught my eye.
The Caprice is a car I’ve wanted to photograph for a long while. It’s thrillingly basic. The loadbay might be long and wide yet it’s also quite shallow. I don’t know what’s under the high floor: fuel tank and transmission I suppose.
There is no armrest on the rear bench. The dashboard is a clam-shell type arrangement and the production engineers left a clear sharp edge and gap where the top part meets the lower part. Inside on the doors the various elements are not very well integrated, as if chosen from a parts bin. Looseness of fit predominates. Despite that, I like the Caprice: a rugged, sturdy machine fit for duty. Today a Dacia Lodgy would do the same job.
