Sorry, I guess I was tilting at windmills there. However, the original '70s
Capri was in fact generally regarded as having a very trivial trunk space.
Anyway, it had the smallest trunk of any car _I've_ ever owned.

The 70s Capri was sold in the USA as _Mercury_ Capri, although made by Ford
in Germany.
