Brilliant, thanks Nick!
I didn't make the same mistake that I made last time, I watched it straight away.
It's the first episode I've watched with Ant. He's OK, but he doesn't seem as likeable as Edd was.
Did Mike really say at the end that it's the first time they've done a Capri on Wheeler dealers? :?

That's the best bit, you've missed the part where Ant gives some great tips on the best tea towels. .. :lol:
I suspected that the video would be removed very quickly, luckily I had time to watch it straight away after you posted the link.
I'm sure that it won't be long before somebody uploads the episode again. I did find a link for the episode on another website, but I didn't post it here as I don't know if the site is safe or not.

Good find! It's a little annoying watching it because the video has been flipped left to right. Could always watch it in a mirror, I suppose! :D

You can download it from that site and use a horizontal flip function in a video editor. All for free.

I’ve made the same mistake again by not watching this, as now I can only find a short extract!

While I had a look, I found this alternative review of a young woman driving a Capri for the first time;

top girl!

Nice one mate. I still have to watch the last 25mins of it. I enjoyed the first half. Did not realise this Mercury Capri was so built with emissions so in mind. And as for those 'american' bumpers !! :lol: Better not hang about too long....will watch it tonight after I send Mrs F off to bed :lol:

:agree: But the Us-spec twin headlights look better than the square units on the European cars, in my opinion.

Andrew.

I am no metal worker but good skills on those bumpers. I always think the Mercury looks a bit half ar*ed with those twin headlights and MK2 type grille thing but maybe it's let down by the rest of the US spec I don't know. I really like the MK2 with square type lights, uaed to be the hated or forgotten Capri but I really like it now.
