Ford Capri

"The car you always promised yourself" was the launch blurb in 1968, and they looked the bees-knees.

Also, Bodie, from The Professionals, drove one, and how cool was he?

My Capri

Post by martinR » Sun Jan 16, 2005 12:20 pm

My first car was a burgundy 1.6 Capri Laser and it was awesome. I loved the way it looked it was like being a proffessional without the perm. Alas one hogmany after only five months of having it someone nicked it to never be seen again :twisted:

My brother (a mechanic) used to drive an orange Capri - but the first version (early sixties) rather than the new-fangled (and better) cars you guys are talking about.
Sworn, b'loody!

Just any Capri was great. Such great lines and that one with three rear lights in a row! An iconic car for sure.

Delboy Trotter thought HE was the bees knees when he got his (clapped out) Capri Ghia...
