Hi All,

I have become a minor local celebrity, since picking up my C5 from down South a fortnight ago. Still getting used to the fame...

I have taken to cruising my wonder-machine, Batman-style, around the neighbourhood in the evenings. It stops traffic, with most people gaping wide-mouthed or asking, "What IS that???" Other beep their horns and wave.

The C5 is very well received. I'm amazed that most people have never seen one or remember it from the 80s, whilst a few people 'of a certain age' remember every detail.

I'm running 12v, with indicators and side skirts, grey boot and original brakes with plastic front wheel and City Jet tyres all round.

This is definitely the most fun you can have at 15 mph.

Hi and welcome to the website  It's always amusing when people wave and beep at you, most people I come across don't know what it is and think its something new.
