Capri on Chris Evans show.

Postby Andrew 2.8i » Mon Mar 24, 2014 6:15 pm

Hi,
I nearly choked on my morning tea when I heard Chris Evans mention a rosso red Capri 2.8 injection on Radio 2 this morning. It seemed to meet with Lynn Bowles' approval as well!
Something to do with a "drive your classic to work day" Chris is organising next month.
Was anyone else listening?
All the best,
Andrew.

Yes I heard it too - it was a guy from Manchester saying that that's the car he will be driving into work on the day, to be fair it could be a bit of a laugh if it becomes big enough, and didn't he say it was all to earn a few quid for charity?

Hi,
Yes that's it, the companies pay a donation if one of their employees drives a classic into work.
Sadly I can't join in as my insurance specifically excludes commuting to work. :(
Was the mystery Manchester Capri owner anyone on here, I wonder?

Hi 'Rosso' ;) I agree - don't forget 5th Gear on Discovery tonight then too!

Andrew I didn't realise it was meant to be the boss who donated money, this gets better :D Shame about your insurance caveat - better read my small print lol. Mind you until this back of mine gets better I haven't even got any seats to sit in, never mind drive the flippin thing!

I thought I heard that the boss had to match the donation. I might be wrong though.
