    I thought that too and then decided I must have mis-heard him and he said they had done one before, a Laser 1.6 in the first series I think. Ed couldn't get the paint to look right.

    About the same time they did that Merc 230 that didn't look so good either.

    They only had a 2 grand budget back in those days, including the cost of the vehicle. So doing a proper re-spray was never an option.

    I was surprised to learn that Ford sold the Capri in America when they already had the Mustang over there.

    Yeah it would look a bit puny sat next to a Mustang.

    They're collectible now. Bought one at auction once I about 1992 or 3; the 3 litre version, I think it cost me 80 quid. Had a hell of a time selling it and never touched another one.

    Would be worth a load now that they are collectible. And they look so much cooler than modern cars it's not funny.

    Back in the early eighties, on my commute to work on my Suzuki GSX 750, my supervisor pulled up beside me at the lights in his 3 litre S Capri. When the lights changed he went for it, but I made it look like he was going backwards. He gave me so much shit about dangerous riding, then sulked all day.

    Capris are now a valuable classic, whereas my Suzuki isn't. Don't have to be quick to be cool.

    I had a very tidy GSX-750ES, didn't rate the performance that much though. The following GSX-600F blew it away and my tiny Honda CB-1 400 could leave either for acceleration. Funny things bikes .

    Mine was a GSX 750 ET, which was even slower, although it seemed fast enough after my X7. And had at the time about 3 second advantage over the Capri going to 60. My mate's GSX was the 1100 version which was a brute in its day.

    'Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club' on MTV


    What a rip-off this is. I thought it was going to be about Lindsay doing stuff but she's not even in it. Just a big advert for her beach bar. Was looking forward to this anorl
