Correct. If you look carefully, on the top row is Francis Ellingworth's (Laser on here) white Laser and his wife's cobalt blue 2.0S below it. These were two of the cars on this year's club stand at the NEC.

Hi 'oldfords'

I was speaking with the very same chap at Deal Classic Car show earlier this year. He mentiined he loaded up a transporter full of Capri's for a photo shoot and just the sheer fun of it with Capri Power members. I did not realise this was the actual one even though the thought had crossed my mind. Really nice chap. Spoke for ages about all things Capri. Think from memory he has a White 2.8i.

That's brilliant! From the outset I kind of assumed it was a photoshopped job, I'm surprised that it is genuine. I bet the owners were all carefully watching the transporter driver while he was loading the cars! :)
