Any C5's in Manchester?
« on: 20, April, 2012 - 17:37:40 »
A lady on twitter asked me if there are any C5's in Manchester that might be available to be borrowed for a performance?
It's for the manchester fringe festival.

I've pointed her in this direction - Her twitter handle is @debbiemanley

Thanks guys

I don't let my C5s out of sight.

They have cost me a lot of money to refurb & time.

I am happy to show them but not lend them for some time especially to people I don't know.

I hope you understand. I am happy to talk to this person before I make my mind up totally.

I have only offered it to the MOSI whilst I refurb there's (Bit of insurance for them).

Hi Lance

Apparently it's just for a photoshoot with a guy who is a dead-ringer for Sir Clive.
They don't need it on stage just for a promotional photo.

Could produce some great images of a Sir Clive-a-like in a C5 in modern times.

They would be happy with a none-runner even if anyone can help.

The Play sounds interesting too. It's about Sir Clive and Alan Sugar cutting a deal about the computers in a restaurant.

Hi,

Yes, it's me that's looking for a C5 for use ina promotional photoshoot and possibly the production of Together in Electric Dreams , a drama we're producing at the Lass O'Gowrie in Manchester this July which has Sir Clive and Alan Sugar cutting the deal to sell the Sinclair computers in 1986.

Shots in a C5 of the Sir Clive actor would be appreciated.  We'd also be interested in picking up a cheap, non working C5 if it was practical for use in promoting the event.

Here's Sir Clive  - aka actor Daniel Thackeray at yesterday's photoshoot...



Cheers


Gareth

Hi Gareth,

I tried to contact you yesterday. I am happy for you to use my C5's if I can accompany it / them. I have 2 fully working ones.

1) Has indicators, mast, mirrors, seat cover - as original & extras.
2) Has mirrors & seat cover only - as original.

I am 10mins from city centre if you want to come round sometime or meet up to discuss further.
