Could be anyone. It looks fairly standard with no distinguishing features that I can see.

A ton and a half dumpy bag infront of the garage door, that's a great theft deterrent :D :D

I didn't. I've just looked it up and he's well into them.
Keeping on the celebrity bird lover theme, I heard on the radio that Mike Tyson keeps pigeons. Funny old world isn't it?

Yeah, he's one of the good guys! It's easy to forget about people once they disappear from the public eye and aren't heard of again. Why can't modern celebs quiety disappear instead of being in the limelight all the time?

:cheers: And they would do variety shows etc without caring if they made themselves look silly.....Many of today's 'celebs' are far too full of their own self importance.

I reckon that's because they all have an entourage of stylists, public relations people and whatever else in tow, all telling them what they should say and do. I bet they're not allowed to do anything that is not within their public persona. The 'celebs' probably can't even take a dump in peace! :lol:

Hi chaps its nice that you's are still thinking about me thinking this was my capri. Unfortunately this is not my car but is very similar apart from the one in the video looks in better condition and my electric aerial doesn't work. I would love to get my capri on a music video or tv program etc. Im guessing this video was shot in Scotland due to the accents. My car has now got 2.8i pepper pots on it until I get my original 4 spokes refurbished. :D

I think he posts on Capri World, a chap called Martin Holland.

Correct I remember when Martin told everyone years ago he's car was being used on this music video. He sold that capri a few years ago now and I've not heard from him since. His claim to fame is being a tv extra on Eastenders and other programs. His son Billy has also followed in his dad's footsteps and has been an extra in films and tv adverts like one for Mercedes the other year. :)

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...

She could slide down my pole like that ;) didn't Jason post a YouTube vid about erection problems on another post because I think I've found the cure :lol:
