Amazing discovery in Italy !
« on: 17, June, 2012 - 08:41:58 »
Some days ago a firned told me about a "strange semi-toy vehicle very similar to yours" casually discovered in a farmer's shack in Vinci (yes the hometown of Leonardo da Vinci  ;D).

I asked him the favor to take some picture and when i seen it could not believe my eyes  :o:













As you know, the C5 was not imported in Italy, and in addicton to my C5 i know only another was in Italy (http://camp0s.blogspot.it/2010/01/il-mitico-sinclair-c5.html).

Would be very interesting to know the story of this C5, and how it was in Italy ...

The farmer said they intended to restore it, but i guess he has no idea what that strange piece of plastic really is ...

 :D

It looks like it had some indicators removed as well.

I agree with it could have an interesting journey.............................................
