Capri On American TV Show

Post by pbar » Fri Dec 18, 2020 9:31 pm

It's common to see a Capri on UK TV shows, past and present, but I haven't seen too many on American shows. Spotted this the other day whilst watching an episode of CHiPS from 1979 -

That's a great spot! I expect it took you by surprise when that Capri flashed across the screen.

Yes it was a shock, it actually appeared twice, but that pic was the closest close up. Watching so many older/classic shows, Capri's appear a lot, but it is unusual to see one on an American show.

Years ago most models of cars looked different and sport models had obvious changes, but now you can't tell what's what and base models look pretty much like top of range cars :?

I keep seeing Capri's on this show, here is a pic I took of an episode which was on yesterday. So if you fancy seeing American Capri's on TV, then watch CHiPS!

They sold at least ¼ million Capris in usa so it not unexpected to see them in period tv or movies 🙂
