Yep, was a grey one. Couldn't quite tell what model it was. Parked nose to nose with a Metro.

Hi All,
While watching the One Show, I spotted a rather nice Capri Mk1 shown in a scene from Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em.

It's always nice to catch an unexpected glimpse of a Capri on the telly. :D

It appears a couple of times in the series. Oddly enough there is a scene where the guy is driving his kid over to somewhere & it has Recaros fitted.

I started watching Moone Boy the other day. It's set in 1989.

Missus got a bit sick of me telling her what every car was. There was a grey Mk3 Capri in a scene too...

I used to own a MK2 capri that was on ashes to ashes some years ago,
sold the car to a classic car collector up Blackpool way, was a lovely motor!

It's a nice car, shame you are trying to sell! If I were you I'd keep it, it's worth as much as a normal Capri!

As someone who does roller derby, that was some fine skating going on there, impressive to pull off those moves whilst making it look like you're about to fall on your arse.

Classic show, we seem to have lost the ability to make such good comedies now.

:agree: Many of the 70's comedy programmes seem so cheesy now, but you didn't notice it at the time. Just plain and simple comedy that no one got upset over..... Been watching Fawlty Towers the last few weeks :applaud:

Nice one Mk2drew. Good to hear from you, and that the car is in that condition. Also my first revived post :D

Just to revive your post further ;). There's a lovely white MK2 capri on a new 'Missguided' advert (whatever that is), my wife showed me the ad last night. Seems they get everywhere now, you know your favourite classic has hit the big time when they use it to advertise women's clothes .. :D
