Don't think its Dan's car, comparing the 'laser' on the nearside wing with a shot I have of his it doesn't look quite the same. Don't know who it does belong to though.

As soon as it entered the screen, as I thought that would provide the best angle to see the reg. It's just too fuzzy to see though.
There was a girl punk group that came on here once asking for a Capri to be used in their promo video. It's quite a good video with plenty of Capri action in it. I can't remember the name of the group though.

I think Danny's has got an "S" interior and they are the wrong wheels.

Yep know the feeling Jason. I was watching a video of "Match of the Day" ( ;) ;) ) the other night when the wife walked in halfway through. Jesus man...I had a lot of explaining to do...

Nice video, I watched it from beginning to end several times.
Now, why do they call it "pole" dancing?.... :whistle:

I've found it now. The band were called Maid of Ace and the video that features the black 2.8 is "Spittin' Blood".


I also found this little ditty called "The Man with the Ford Capri"

I just watched the young lady up the pole and was really pleased that she had two radiators behind her as she could have caught a cold with not much on . Also I did wonder why she got them big shoes from as I think they use them as weights to help them down the pole :lol:

Was the black Capri any body we new on here ?

Nice car but glad it wasn't mine :lol:
Good to see a Girl band that can play instruments and aren't just worried about looks :guitar: They are sisters too.

Girlschool and Crucified Barbara are good female bands too (No Capri's in their videos that i know of).....

That's it. It's good to be able to say that your car is in a music video though. However, from what I've read on the internet, although you might be able to watch the shoot in action, you won't have much control over what happens to your car. I'll give it a miss.
