Yes, a bra on a Capri looks great.

The look on the face of the girl on the left tells me she's not really enjoying being there. Or is she fed up with Nick's attention?.....

Oh yes, girls usually love wearing next to nothing in public, draped over a car whilst countless men ogle over them!

Hehe. good one Tom :) After I did the Nick's garage one, I also thought of doing one for Crap, honestly! That must mean that to some degree we have the same thought patterns. Scary :D

They are probably sat there to hide the rust along the front of the bonnet... :lol:

Actually this is a nice Capri, I have seen it a few times :) http://www.duchycapriclub.co.uk/

What, do you think she's stumbled into that scenario by accident? :?
I'm pretty sure she would have worked out beforehand what was involved.

Just a job to her I guess, another photo shoot. Not something to 'enjoy'.

It's a bit naive to think that ladies are stripping off and draping themselves over vehicles at car shows for enjoyment. Though people have all kinds of hobbies! :D

I might be way off here, but I assume (you know what they say about assuming.....) that she's a professional paid model. Well, she won't get much work if she turns up to a photoshoot with an expression like that on her face. Or is it supposed to be a pout? I dunno...... :D

She's angry because there were no steak and ale pies left and she blatantly needs one badly.

*Alan Partridge voice* HAHA! Weight jokes.

Im glad someone else has mentioned this though.
I first saw those photos with these models quite a while ago and i too could only think about how pissed off she looks, the other two dont seem too happy to be there either.

Makes me suspect if something more sinister was at play as usually paid models dont do that, unless of course they weren't paid and thats the issue.

Either way i cant stand this objectifying practice of having half naked models pose with cars.
For me theres the questionable moral issue of the whole thing, but mostly because they just get in the way of the car!
Thats what im here to see not some random lady who isnt my type!

Plus, the ones where they have them posing with their high heels on the bodywork really do my nut in! Every-time i see one like that i sometimes literally shout at the computer screen "WHY DO YOU DO THIS? TAKE YOUR FEET OFF THE FECKING BONNET YOU'LL SCRATCH THE PAINT!", only i dont say "fecking". :banghead:
The other one that annoys me are the ones where they have little to nothing on around the old velvet triangle area... imagine the smudge they leave behind once they stand up! Urgh.

I agree they don't look happy or like they are enjoying their time. To my eyes they look slightly Eastern European (nothing wrong with that - my best mate's of Hungarian descent) but I do hope they are not there against their will or part of any sinister goings ons.

For my little pervations, I would prefer to see a fit woman in tight leggings, perhaps with a bit of the toe of a Camel on display, but I certainly don't want any of them, exposed velvet triangle or not, on the bonnet of my car - indeed anyone caught on the bonnet of my car will get a visit, I'll strip down to my boxers and plonk my 21 stone bulk on theirs to see how they like that!

You're like a death at a birthday party you are.

They're probably looking mean because the photographer has said "it's a mean looking car, so look mean for me".
